Knives Out

In the first bout of the high-toned "Battle of the Chefs" series, Kunihiro Kinda (of San Francisco's Hime) pits his Japanese fare against the Bronx-Italian stylings of Joseph Manzare (Zuppa, Pescheria) in the slick kitchens of a department store. Much like what goes down in Iron Chef's Kitchen Stadium, the cook-offs feature a main ingredient, play-by-play commentary, and celebrity judges. But our events have a tasty difference: The audience gets to sample the food and mix with the stars. Expect an intimate, gentlemanly match -- until the first tomato gets away from Manzare.
