“Battle Cabbage” To Be Re-Created at Manresa

Savoy cabbage at Love Apple Farm, where Manresa Chef David Kinch finds his muse.

You asked for it; you got it.

Bowing to overwhelming demand from diners, Chef David Kinch of Manresa in Los Gatos has decided to re-create his stunning dishes that earned him a tremendous victory recently on the Food Network’s “Iron Chef America.”

In his first time in Kitchen Stadium, Kinch trounced Iron Chef Bobby Flay by a whopping 10 points in “Battle Cabbage.”

On three consecutive Sundays — May 10, May 17, and May 24 — Kinch will feature his winning dishes in a prix fixe “Iron Chef” menu at Manresa for $135 per person, exclusive of wine, tax, and gratuity. The dinner will include his five “Battle Cabbage” dishes, along with a special dessert. And in case you were wondering, nope, that sweet finale to the meal will be sans cabbage.

Reserve by calling (408) 354-4330. Be sure to let the reservationist know that you intend to order the “Iron Chef” menu. You also can book your reservation on OpenTable. Just  leave a message in the field for “Special Requests for the Maitre D’ ”  to indicate you want the “Iron Chef” menu.

Of course, the regular three-course, four-course, and tasting menus also will be available those evenings. But why pass up a chance to taste culinary history?
