Mercato Market Atlantic City Race Course: Thousands of Delighted Supporters Turn Out for Grand Opening The Grand Opening was an amazing success. We drew attendance in the region of 10,000 on the first day and slightly less, at around 7,000, on Sunday due to the colder temperatures. We took the time to talk to each and every vendor and also as many guests as possible and the majority of people were delighted with our start out of the gate. We realize there is some fine tuning needed to make this a first class experience and we are working to make adjustments for our next weekend on May 10th & 11th. The major concern was the $3 parking fee, which we cancelled around noon on Day One. We changed to a donation based system the following day. We will ensure that we publicize the selected charity that will benefit each week. This month we are supporting No Kid Hungry.

Chef Terry French is not one to follow convention. He puts passion and fun into the preparation of his food, making each bite a memorable experience. Whether it's an exotic dish or an exotic location, Chef French goes for Extreme Cuisine every time. The results are sexy and often described as simply "bad ***."

Chef French can rule the kitchen, but it is his wild outrageous side, and his love for cooking outdoors that especially starts his heart pumping. Having all the tools a chef could desire is fantastic, but the challenge of creating exquisite dishes in adventurous situations and extreme elements truly ignites his passion and showcases his creativity. As long as he has fuel, materials and fresh ingredients,  he can make magic happen.

In 2012, Chef French's unique experiences and approach to food made him the perfect candidate for the Food Network's Extreme Chef, taking competitors out of the kitchen and into the most extreme locations in the world. By the final episode, French found himself atop an elephant navigating the remote jungles in Thailand, then racing up hundreds of stairs to a Buddhist temple, where French lets nothing hold him back. After wowing judges with his "perfect bite," Chef French received the formal title of World Extreme Chef.

Born in Evansville, Indiana, French grew up cooking with his family, crediting his upbringing for most of his foraging abilities during the competition. His father taught him how to hunt and fish at a young age. Before graduating from Scottsdale Culinary Institute and apprenticeships in continental, European, and Asian cuisine, Chef French served in the U.S. Navy, completing two world tours. Chef French also spent nine years as a tournament fisherman, nine years as first mate on a sport-fishing boat, and is a United States Coast Guard licensed captain.

In addition to several projects currently in development, Chef French's catering company, Culinary Dreams, creates unique dining experiences that will be remembered for a lifetime. Chef French also gives back with his nonprofit organization, Chefs for Life. Most recently, Chefs for Life helped bring Thanksgiving dinner to victims of Hurricane Sandy in the Rockaways.
