La Jolla’s Harvard Cookin’ Girl cooking school hosted an “Iron Chef: Knife Fight” event Oct. 13, 2014 pitting against each other two chefs hoping to win a spot in the World Food Championships (WFC) in Las Vegas.

Participation in WFC is sponsored by Chef’s Roll, a networking site for chefs.

Mikel Anthony of Ronin Ramen House and RoseAna Peyron of Counterpoint restaurant squared off, each making two dishes — one with Hiramasa (Baja yellowtail) and one with pork. Prior to serving the judges and diners seated in the intimate back dining room of the kitchen at 7441 Girard Ave., La Jolla, the chefs demonstrated how they made each dish and what the components were, while their sous chefs made portions for everyone. In the end, the winning team was Peyron and her assistants Robert Ramos and Ian Carroll.

Iron Chef events happen once every few months, said Harvard Cookin Girl owner Bibi Kasrai. To attend a future contest, visit and click on schedule.
