And the results are in.....

Saturday I competed in the 6th annual Chef Showdown at Mohegan Suns annual Sun Wine Festival. After what seemed to be one long 30 minutes, I had completed my dish for the 3 judges...Elizabeth Faulkner, chef and owner of citizen cake in San Francisco, Walter Potenza, chef and owner of Spiga Tratorria and Pichet Ong, former pastry chef at Spice Market. The final dish....Shrimp Carpaccio, Pulled Pork Relish & Spanish Olive Oil Powder. Great day, great competition. Being forced to create a dish in under 30 minutes from scratch, to impress fellow colleagues, who we all know are the worst critics to have, is a challenge, and to do it 2 years in a row and come out on top is a humbling thing to accomplish. Looking forward to next year.....
