This reminds me of my mother. This tastes like an onion sleeping under a tree. Tee hee, my mouth feels silly! Dadaist poetry? Sentences penned under the influence of a controlled substance? Nope -- quotes from judges on the original Iron Chef. While these strange utterances may have been the result of some bad Japanese-to-English translation, we prefer to think that the judges ate food so delicious that it altered their verbal skills. Get your own taste of the fun today at the Iron Chef Rematch Contest. From 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. this morning at the Clayton Farmers Market (8282 Forsyth Boulevard, Clayton), talented chefs Tony Hedger and John Womick battle for culinary supremacy. As on the show Iron Chef, the main ingredient wont be revealed until right before the contest -- all Hedger and Womick know is that it comes from the farmers market. Celebrity judges (including Lou Rook from Annie Gunns and Bernard Pilon from the Norwood Hills Country Club) have the final say over whose cuisine reigns supreme. Theres no charge for this morning of good-natured rivalry, and the winning recipes will be posted online following the competition; call 314-398-9729 or visit www.claytonfarmersmarket.com for more information.
