Brought to you by Indiana Farm Bureau, this is your chance to witness Indy’s version of Iron Chef, spend an evening enjoying Indiana food, wine and beer, and help out Indy’s own Gleaners Food Bank.

Here's a sneak peak at the Iron Chef set up from last year! "Team Pork" (WZPL's Dave Smiley, pork farmer, Heather Hill, and chef Jason Anderson took on "Team Dairy" with Paul Poteet, dairy farmer, Liz Kelsay and chef Chip Huckaby.

Last year I was the #OfficialTweeter for the event and it was a blast! It is a great opportunity to have fun and learn a little more about farmers and food preparation. The recipes are geared toward something you can make in your own kitchen and last year they sent the recipes out after the event so you could try it at home!
