The chef from Bistro Blanc is carrying the Howard County flag into a local battle among restaurants.
Janny Kim has reached the semi-finals of the Mason-Dixon Challenge, a contest where chefs cook head-to-head similar to Iron Chef or other reality shows.
Kim takes on a Timonium chef on Monday in "Battle South East Asia" at the Inn At The Collonade in Baltimore. You can buy tickets to the event.
We need to get out and give Bistro Blanc another try. In April, the Glenelg restaurant got a resounding review from Richard Gorelick in the Sun. Gorelick loved everything from small plates to fish to dessert. It's another place on my list to re-try.
