Last Night: The Dallas Observer's Iron Fork at the Fashion Industry Gallery

Last night brought the Observer's annual celebration of station-to-station face-stuffing, a tasting event and cooking competition that packed downtown's sleek Fashion Industry Gallery and packed on a few pounds as well.

The highlight of the night, not counting the three Tiff's Treats I stuffed in my pocket on the way out, was the cook-off, which pitted Whiskey Cake's TJ Lengnick against veteran chef Scott Romano. Romano took home the prize, as you can see above; find out how, and see more, in Jay Barker's slideshow.

Our own Cheap Bastard, Alice Laussade, judged the event and will be along shortly with her take on the proceedings.

Not trolling, swear, but why is the Iron Fork award a skillet?


This was a great evening! Can't wait to go next year. There were a lot of people but lines were moving regularly. Hallways were a little cramped though and a large trash can in each room would probably help but overall the food, drink, entertainment, and everything was great! Definitely have some new restaurants to try!


I made it home with some cake balls. Had a good time, it wasn't overly crowded (had thinned considerably by the time the competition started), and the food was fab!
