Competitors turn up the heat
Next Super Chef to be crowned at SeabrookBy Julia Collins
Three teams will square off later this month in Seabrook’s fourth annual Super Chef competition on Sept. 19.
Each team is comprised of one chef and one resident from the Tinton Falls, N.J., community; the teams will vie for the title of Seabrook Super Chef in front of a live audience and panel of judges in Seabrook’s 250-seat auditorium.
Participants will receive a mystery ingredient, which they must use to create a delectable dish in just 35 minutes. Last year, Seabrook partnered with the New Jersey State Department of Agriculture to feature a mystery ingredient of Garden State produce.
Last year’s winning team, the Delectable Duo (Emily Pernice and chef Alex Rocha) wrapped perfectly cooked asparagus and squash in a delicate crepe. They paired the crepe with prosciutto-wrapped shrimp, all atop a creamy white sauce. Only time will tell what this year’s mystery ingredient will be. “This event draws a huge crowd,” says Public Relations Manager Tony Ciavolella. “It’s one of our most popular events. It’s fun and flavorful!”
Priority lists members may attend, but seating is limited.
