Peter Line and Party Time Nate met once again in a battle of culinary skills. For this YoBeat Most Awesome Chef challenge, the home court advantage was Nate’s, as Peter drove down to Portland to attempt to take out Nate once again. The secret ingredient of coffee (provided by Wille Yli Luoma and Heart Roasters) prove to be a challenge for both chefs, but they managed to put together two very good meals. Only one could come out on top though, and claim the glamorous prize.

If you missed the first time Peter and Nate met, be sure to check it out.

After losing the soup off, and the Totino’s Party Pizza challenge, I figured it was time to let some other people do the cooking. I brushed up on my hosting skills by studying Padma for weeks (not really) before we headed to Seattle for this latest Top Chef installment. This time it was legendary pro snowboarder Peter Line competing against my former challenger, Party Time Nate, and the theme was hot dogs! Peter was kind enough to host in his insane Seattle pent house that sort of made me feel bad about my own home. Maybe I shouldn’t have given up on being a pro snowboarder after all… It was nothing but a good time, and you know what, the food was pretty damn good too. So enjoy the video, cause I’m not going to tell you who won.

Two titans of snowboarding’s culinary community met, but only one could emerge victorious. Party Time Nate and Peter Line set out once and for all to determine who was the superior chef by cooking what else, but hot dogs!

Jared has been claiming soup skills since I met him. Since I fancy myself to have some culinary skills as well, I couldn’t just let him claim it. So after lots of talk, we finally got down to it: the official soup off. Thanks to Nate, Chrissy and Tim for judging. As for the winner? Well, you’ll have watch the video to find out:

Losing it

Posted by admin in General - (0 Comments)

The first few days back from a trip are always weird. Maybe it’s the jet lag (but seriously, it was only three hours of time difference) or the fact that I almost have to get re-accustomed to sleeping in the insane comfort that is my own bed. Maybe I just get out of the habit of getting up, going into the office, and working. Whatever it is, it taking longer than usual this time.

When I am out of town for awhile I forget about what I have to do. I always have several projects going at once, and since I am usually traveling for one at a time that one takes precidance and the rest are nearly forgotten.  This morning I got an email asking about text for one of the forgotten projects. Crap! It’s never good to admit you aren’t working on something so the drill is: Make up excuse. Give a date you’ll have it done. Do it. Everyone is happy. But silly me, I said I’d have it done by the end of the week. Oh yeah, Top Chef was on last night (yes I track time by TV Shows), it’s Thursday. The end of the week is TOMORROW!

I’m also working on several other things– I need a t-shirt slogan for the new Alliance Wakeskate site (it’s not going well.) I have to track down old, illusive pro snowboarders to get quotes for a story.  I am supposed to be writing a profile, of course the subject isn’t returning my emails anymore. I am planning a magazine trip, and I have two photographers who think they are going. I have to break the bad news to one of them.

Mostly though, I have to get my head straight. I don’t know if it’s going to help, but I have been browsing the world wide web. I came across this. It’s good. Also my cats rule. Here is a picture.
