I’ve been invited to participate in the International Culinary Olympics ( as part of a 5-man team called the 2008 Midwest Culinary Institute Olympic Team ( We are one of 8-12 regional teams from the United States attending the world-wide competition.

We’re traveling to Erfurt, Germany for the competition. Our trip will be October 16-25, 2008. In addition to loads of culinary equipment, we’re taking a slew of computers and cameras. I will blog the events each day, data access permitting. Articles will appear in this category.

  • Thanks for your comment, Dan. It’s a really exciting experience. I’m very much looking forward to it!

    It was decided that this would be a “boys-only” trip this time, so neither Wendy nor the spouses of the other chefs are going.

    Mr. Face waited too long to get his passport, or he’d be our team mascot. 😉
