A Chopped Victory?
Tonight’s season premiere of Chopped, the Ted Allen-hosted culinary show, will have one of our own among the four competitors: our beloved Chef Eric Paraskevas of terra!
Tonight’s episode promises this: “Watch out, there is a big surprise in the appetizer basket! The chefs are shaking in their boots when they discover rattlesnake meat must be included in their first course. After finding another very unexpected ingredient in the entrée basket, and making a major mistake, one of the competitors makes an emotional plea at the chopping block. And when two finalists face off for the $10,000 prize, they attempt to make red-hot desserts out of a super spicy ingredient.”
Judges are Geoffrey Zakarian, Alex Guarnaschelli, and Chris Santos. The tune-in is 10 p.m. April 6, with repeats at 1 a.m. April 7 and 8 p.m. April 23.
If that wasn’t enough to keep our little restaurant humming, tonight is the much anticipated Victory Beer dinner! Victory Beer, brewed right here in Pennsylvania, is a favorite for many. terra is putting together a dinner where each course will be paired with a different Victory brew.
