Iron chefs sharpen skills


NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio – Schoenbrunn Village will host the Iron Chef-Northeast Region competition May 5 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In this statewide competition, contestants or teams of contestants must battle to win their regional trial to be able to compete in the final struggle, June 2 in Columbus.
