Like Iron Chef Without the Fun

That subject makes this sound like a bit of a downer, but since I'm highly doubting that this will feature the same theatrics as the Iron Chef, it's not too far from the truth. That said, tempered expectations say this could be a more sedate kind of enjoyment. As part of this weekend's Vulcan sponsored South Lake Union Block Party, they're going to have a grilling competition. It's uncertain what the format is going to be, or when it really gets going, but they make it sound like it could be thrilling. If nothing else, it's free to watch ($5 suggested donation, which spanning_time suggests only paying if the competition doesn't suck).

Here's the official copy on what's going down:
It wouldn't be a block party without a grill! Seattle's best chefs will face off in the Whole Foods Market Natural Grilling Competition at the 2nd Annual South Lake Union Block Party, Friday, August 11th, from 5pm until midnight, and continuing on Saturday, August 12th, from 11am until 9pm.

Grill against Grill:

All contestants will be given the same all natural ingredients and a six pack of Redhook beer (it's not grilling without the beer), and then it's a race to create unique cuisines within a limited amount of time. This year's block party Natural Grilling Competition will feature:

Amanda Zimlich, Chef at the Madison Park Café

Scott Samuel, formerly the Sous Chef at The Herbfarm, and now working as Chef Instructor for Fine Dining at Seattle Culinary Academy

John Neumark, Executive Chef at Serafina
