One of Avi's friend's, Zinnia, got a beautiful kitchen remodel by her parents for Christmas. It was inspiring to see it come together, so much so that I want to make one for Avi. But in the meantime, we've created a little 'Farmer's Market' and 'Iron Chef Stadium' in our living room. I love to watch Avi shop, and sort, and cook up his creations. A favorite was onion banana soup - YUM! Iron Chef Zakarian, you've been warned! But his first competition in Iron Chef Stadium was with Chef Garces. Here are some highlights::

I can't wait to taste his peach pie.
Gordon Ramsey would be proud!

A little potato to add to the.... could it be? Yes, the ice cream machine!
"Three, two, one, and step away!"
And the Winner is...
