Alan Hepner… no it wasn’t ‘rigged’…. his Risotto with mushrooms and Beer was outstanding
of course all the contestants were amazing and wonderful to watch create magic. As you can see in the background, CANEX was a major sponsor. They donated the van in the background with a wheelchair lift for Jonquil Hallgate who is Director of Surrey Urban Mission
CENTRAL CITY BREWERY was amazingly generous

I`ve just enjoyed the most fabulous dining experience of my life tonight at Gary Danko`s in San Francisco.
The staff were outstanding…they continued to go above and beyond our expectations all evening. The food and wine pairing was beyond.
Well done Gary Danko, thank you for the signed menu handed to us just before we left your gorgeous restaurant.
Thank you for an amazing evening Gary and Staff

Halve two to three pieces of citrus and place them in your oven directly on the rack. Leave the oven door propped open for a few hours (or up to overnight). In the morning, close the oven door and turn the broiler on. Let the oven cool, toss the citrus, and wipe out the base of the oven. The flies are gone and your kitchen smells good to boot! —Test Kitchen Manager, Derek Laughrenhttp://food52.com/users/334819-derek-laughren
