Sometimes living vicariously through your boob tubes inhabitants just isnt enough. Sure, it feels like enough when youre curled up on the couch with a special cigarette and a Hot Pocket, but it pays to participate in live action. This Wednesday, feed your Iron Chef fix at the Whole Foods Coral Gables second annual Culinary Clash. Chefs Cindy Hutson of Ortanique on the Mile and Clay Conley of Azul will get one hour to use the secret ingredient in three original dishes that will sumptuously destroy their opponents offering. The judges include your sense of smell, chef Sean Bernal of the Oceanaire Seafood Room, New Times food blogger Jackie Sayet, and Whole Foods marketing coordinator Russ Benblatt. Youll have to watch the judges eat, but its far better than ogling reruns on television. The showdown begins at 7 p.m. To watch is free, and to RSVP is appreciated but not required.
