A weekly selection of special dishes from the kitchen of HOB Chef Jake Richardson
That's right folks. HOB's own, Chef Jake Richardson has won the 2022 city-wide Tucson Knife Fight and brought the championship back home to us!
Truth be told, when first asked to participate in the event, Chef Jake was hesitant., citing an endlessly busy schedule. But, after three grueling rounds of competition spread over an equal number of weeks, the reluctant hero emerged peerless atop the leader board.
What, you might ask, was his winning dish? To seal the deal and crown himself victor, Chef Jake prepared an undeniable onslaught of cuttlefish somen, wild mushrooms SOS, and a rock mellon and chorizo stew paired with sautéed monk fish. You know, just the usual things floating around our Chef's brain. No big deal...
For his efforts, he was not only afforded culinary bragging rights throughout the city, but this monstrous piece of hardware as well. Its size perhaps only dwarfed by that of his smile upon displaying it in the bar!
Congratulations to Chef Jake!
