Judge a cooking competition: Ever wanted to be that smarmy bald guy on cooking shows who decides whether a chef becomes the next Thomas Keller or works the deep-fryer at Popeyes? You’re in luck because on March 15, you can judge a cook-off between Restuarant-Ecole Institut Paul Bocuse’s two most talented apprentice chefs; Guillermo from Spain and Mr. Rozhkov from Russia. Simply try each dish, vote for your favorite, and win prizes if your man snags the crown. Menus will be available before the contest at www.restaurantecole-shanghai.com. Call (0)21-3307-1102 for more info.
