On Monday, August 15 2016 the Triada Palm Springs Hotel in Palm Springs, California set the stage for the second regional heat of the KAABOO ROCK’N CHEF COMPETITION. Presented by Chef’s Roll and sponsored by US Foods, Barilla Pasta and Callebaut Chocolate, the exhilarating showdown saw Workshop Kitchen + Bar Chef/Owner Michael Beckman take on Executive Chef Herve Glin of the Parker Palm Springs.
Guests mingled during cocktail hour, enjoying Raymond Vineyard Wines, beer from Duck Foot Brewing Company and Cucumber Smash cocktails made with Nolet’s Silver Dry Gin, before taking their seats to watch and taste as each chef created a separate three-course meal, cooked in part on ROX Outdoor Grills. Executive Chef Herve Glin ultimately clinched victory, securing a spot in the ROCK’N CHEF Final at the KAABOO festival in San Diego, California, where he will compete against Phoenix’ Chef Dushyant Singh and four (yet to qualify) San Diego chefs in front of a panel of expert judges and KAABOO attendees in the “winner-takes-all” challenge on Saturday, September 17.
