Met Club Chicago's Greg Carso Named Chicago Society 2012 Metal Chef
Congratulations to Greg Carso, Executive Chef at The Metropolitan Club in Chicago and winner of the Chicago Society’s 8th Annual Metal Chef competition. The competing chefs were given a basket of three mystery ingredients including ponzu for the appetizer course, pork belly for the entrée and mangoes for dessert.
On hand to assist with judging this year was celebrity judge, Victoria Ordoñez of Jorge Ordoñez Wines in Spain. Ordoñez introduced a "twist" to the competition by providing – midway through the competition - her 2007 vintage dessert wine, "Victoria," for the Chefs to use in their dessert course.
The event was a great success with more than 175 Members and Guests attending and raised more than $1,100 for the Greater Chicago Food Depository and a flat-bed cart of non-perishable food donations.
