In April I challenged the owner and the team at Sky Armory Events Venue in Downtown Syracuse, NY to my No Thumbs Chef Challenge! What a fantastic group of people. I've been a to a number of events there and always been impressed. I knew I had to see if they were up for the challenge to get out of their comfort zone and do something different in the kitchen.

I had so much fun getting doing this next No thumbs Chef Challenge.

I got in the kitchen and challenged two great chefs to cook like me. I taped them up their hands and we went to work on some crostini appetizers for the holidays. They did an awesome job trying to figure out how to grate and slice cheese. Simple task right? 


Come and give this wonderful restaurant a try! Check out the menu and find its location on their website.
