Update: Thanks to all who participated. Our three winners were chosen at random out of those who got it right -- congratulations big.aitch, tupton and Elizabeth389! -Ed.

The Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show is coming to Houston this weekend, and Eating...Our Words has three pairs of tickets to see two of this year's celebrity speakers, Paula Deen and Jacques Pépin (two for Dean and one for Pépin).

We would like nothing more than to give them away to you fine people. We're sure you have a preference for seeing Deen or Pépin, and one built on a careful consideration of each chef's oeuvre, with not a trace of presumption or supposition. It should be a simple matter, then, to play matchy match with the following recipes. Surely you can tell a fancy French Chef from a Soulful Southern Matron. Right?

We picked ten dishes created by either Paula or Pépin, and we'll be giving three pairs of tickets to three readers who correctly guess the creator of each.

Paula or Pepin?

  1. Margherita Tortilla Pizzas
  2. Mayonnaise with Horseradish and Applesauce
  3. Crab Martini
  4. Sausage, White Bean, and Swiss Chard Soup
  5. Burnt Orange Bread Pudding
  6. Glazed Sausage Bits
  7. Crispy French Fries with Mayonnaise Dip
  8. Smoked Gouda and Sweet Potato Pizza
  9. Surimi (Imitation Crabmeat) Salad on Greens
  10. Bread and Butter Pudding

Whose is whose? Leave your guesses in the comments, and we'll let you know who wins in a couple of days. If we get a bunch of correct guesses, we'll pick the winners at random from those. Go ahead and note which chef you'd like to see, but we can't guarantee winners will get tickets to their first choice. Please make sure to let us know how to get in touch with you. In the meantime, take that piggy bank to the CoinStar, just in case you get to be the lucky one toting home a bag full of carbon fiber knives and automatic meat aerators.

The Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show will be held September 15-16 at Reliant Center. Along with appearances by celebrity chefs Jacques Pépin, Paula Deen and Giada De Laurentiis, the show will feature a shopping marketplace with hundreds of purveyors of specialty foods and entertainment necessities plus cooking demonstrations, tastings and hands-on workshops. The show also features a Regional Cooking Stage honoring The James Beard Foundation with local chefs including Hugo Ortega, Randy Evans, Jamie Zelko, Ronnie Killen, Michael and David Cordúa and Rebecca Masson.

If you don't win tickets here (but you're going to, I can feel it), tickets, priced from $24.50 for general admission to the show floor with its marketplace and local chef and entertaining stages, to $400 for a VIP experience, are available now at metrocookinghouston.com. To keep up with the latest information on the show, you can also follow the show's Twitter handle, @MetroCookingHOU.

Just curious: how many of you DIDN'T rely on Google for your answers? Seeing as how my wife got them all wrong on a test run, I'm guessing very few.

None of these could be Paula's dishes, because they don't combine deep-fat frying and at least a pound of butter!
