Another year, another IDOS Cast Iron Chef’s challenge.
Much like the “Iron Chef’s” challenges we were given secret ingredients, this year: Coconut Rum, Nutella and Cinnamon Gummy Bears. We had to put one of each of the secret ingredients into each of the three dishes: the dessert, bread and Entree, all cooked in a dutch oven.
This was a great start to the competition. This dish took first place in the Dessert category.
Coconut Rum Biscuits
This dish did well also, tying for second place.

Braised Cinnamon Bear Rabbit Paella with Barley
This was the blacksheep of the bunch. Cinnamon bears made the dish way too sweet and I admittedly braised the Rabbit just a little too long. Don’t get me wrong, it was good, but it did not stay on the bone and just did not work up to its potential.
