Hope all you Rockheads can make this!!!!

Washington, DC (November 17, 2010)— On Sunday, November 28th, chef RJ Cooper of the forthcoming Rogue 24 in Washington, DC will compete head to head on the nationally acclaimed television show Iron Chef America. Cooper, the seasoned veteran chef and James Beard Award winner, will be the very first challenger to face the winner of the third season of Food Network’s “The Next Iron Chef.”

In celebration of this exciting opportunity, Cooper is hosting a special viewing party, eager to share this evening with the DC community. The event will be held from 8pm -12am at Long View Gallery (1234 9th St., NW), a Blagden Alley neighbor of Rogue 24.

As a chef advisory member of Chefs as Parents, the non-profit organization that is working to improve the quality of school lunch programs, Cooper is proud to announce that this event will donate 100% of the proceeds directly to this important cause. Joined by founder chef Cathal Armstrong and fellow advisory chefs Robert Wiedmaier and David Guas, Cooper looks forward to sharing this evening with the community, while bringing awareness to the importance of eradicating the current state of public school lunches.

Guests can look forward to delicious hors d’oeurves prepared by the four founding chefs, handcrafted cocktails made by Todd Thrasher and local mixologists and fresh oysters shucked throughout the evening by the acclaimed Rappahannock River Oyster team.

At 10 pm, everyone will gather to watch the exciting episode as Cooper and his Iron Chef America sous chefs (Rogue 24’s chef de cuisine Harper McClure and Bayou Bakery’s David Guas) compete in kitchen stadium.

Cooper and Chefs as Parents request that all guests make a $50 donation at www.chefsasparents.com/go/donate/ prior to the event as part of the rsvp process, in order to support their effort in transforming the state of public school lunch programs.

Tickets are limited to the first 250 guests that rsvp and donate. All rsvps need to be made by Monday, November 22nd and should be sent to judithmandel@rogue24.com

Cathal fixed lamb sausage with sauerkraut, Robert W had Beef Bourguignon and RJ had scallops with creamy soup (RJ, please help me out), Caramel popcorn from Bayou Bakery and fresh oysters and clams from Rappahanock River Oysters.

I tried the beef bourguigon twice. It was so nice. I loved the clams.
