Tweed Bassists Wins WBEZ Recipe Contest

By Paul. Filed under: OffTopic, TweedBlog. Tags: ,

Tune your dial to 91.5fm Thursday (or possibly Friday) at 9AM. Several weeks ago WBEZ’s morning show 848 anounced a recipe contest which required the use of A-1 steak sauce, Toblerone chocolate and Grey Puopon Mustard. This was a challenge I was up for. Over dinner, my wife Lauren and I colaborated to come up with the recipe that won the hearts and taste buds of the WBEZ staff and Chef Efrain, their finalist judge. We recently recorded a segment of us in the kitchen cooking up the winning recipe. For those of you who can’t wait to hear the segment. Here is our winning recipe. For hot pics of us in the kitchen and to hear the story after tomorrow’s broadcast go to
