I apologize for my delay of this posting. Once again, we had a neck-to-neck IRON CHEF battle at our department to celebrate our upcoming moving at our workplace. It was a delicious day for everyone!

1st place! Renee Biss
Renee went out of her way, selected the best ingredients and combination to come up the following creative dishes.

Strawberry Basil Mocktail - Sweet yet tangy with a great fragrance. I want more!
Citrus Basil Vinegarette with baby greens. Dried cranberry and grated cheese (top)
 Grilled Polenta Round with Smoked Mozzarella, Tomato & Basil Sauce (bottom)

Best Presentation! Frances Wun
Frances successfully created a great looking, Italian/Thai infused plating at the table.
Eggplant with Italian Basil Stuffing Bacon Wrap
Thai Vinegarette Noodle with Peanuts 

Tasty and Refreshing! Bryan Capstick
Need not say more. This was very refreshing and had a strong limey taste. Perfect summer dessert.
Basil Lime (with a hint of mint) Sorbet Served in a Lime Cup with a Raspberry

Single Dish Winner! Juliette Carvalho
This dish might look simple to the eyes, but it's truly a genius idea of combining potatoes and creamy dipping. It was very delicious and all gone within the first hour of serving! "It's a much fancier version of the classic potato chip with dip. Haha." -Juliette
