Tonight on Food Network, the TV show Chopped will feature two spectacular chefs.
Laercio Chamon Jr. aka Junior, executive chef at Zoe in Little Silver, NJ and Lauren Van Liew, chef and owner of Chef Covas Catering in Red Bank, NJ are just two of the contestants facing off over picnic baskets filled with who-knows-what ingredients.
Next week in Long Island City, NY, the creme de la creme of cheese mongers will convene for the Cheese Monger Invitational. Caitlin O’Neill, the assistant manager of Sickles Market’s cheese department will be competing along with 49 other invitees to see who knows the most. There is a trip to France on the line here, and O’Neill, who has been invited back to this convention would like very much to win.
