The society begins

The inaugural meeting took place March 20, 2009.  Each chef had to cook a crab cake and a steak dish. Sounds easy enough until the judges pulled out their score cards.

Brendan won with his crab cake that came with a ridiculously good guacamole side (had a lemony kick).  Surprisingly, B. used frozen crab meat. Sabrina created small, light and fluffy crab cakes (fresh meat) that came a close second. I went another direction: an Asian-inspired crab cake (frozen meat) that was way too heavy. 

The steak course was a meat-eaters dream. Sabrina took home the top prize with her yummy dish that included a peppercorn sauce.

I worshipped at the foodie altar of the Barefoot Contessa and made her “steakhouse steak” and Roquefort chive sauce recipes.

I love this recipe because it calls for loads of butter and no BBQ is required (BBQs and I don’t mix).


Brendan: 1
Katherine: 0
Sabrina: 1
