The 11 Best Bites from the Dallas Observer Iron Fork 2013

Hopefully you made it to Iron Fork last night. Hopefully you dressed lightly. While massive blowers at the front of the venue did their best, the back of the Dallas Contemporary was quite warm. I'm half convinced that Matt McCallister's sweat was the magical ingredient that propelled the young chef to victory, but I'll let Alice tell that tale in another post. What I want to focus on is all the amazing food I devoured at the event. Honestly, there were some really good bites, starting with that mess of sausage in the picture above.

Kuby's sausage plate may not have been the prettiest presentation at Iron Fork, but it was a serious contender for the most delicious. It almost seems odd that the line to Kuby's table was much longer than other participants given the simplicity of their presentation, but that just goes to show that when you carefully cook great ingredients, great things always happen. With a big spoonful of mustard this little sausage party was a really winner. And it was just the beginning.
