Iron Fork Chefs DeRosa, Rapicavoli Get Into Twitter War

We'll admit it. We kinda started it when we asked a few questions of Giorgio Rapicavoli and Jamie DeRosa, the two chefs set to compete in this year's Iron Fork and Miami Spice kickoff event, presented by the Downtown Development Authority, on August 1 at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Miami.

We didn't think that these two talented chefs would engage in a war of words using Twitter as their weapon of choice... but we're kind of totally psyched it happened.

Shortly after we posted the interview, in which DeRosa, chef/partner at Tongue & Cheek and Rapicavoli, chef/partner at Eating House, explained their strategies for winning the upcoming competition (which included punching raw meat and training at a non-existent boot camp), a war erupted.
