Chef’s Plate 18: Philadelphia

Chef’s Roll’s traveling culinary competition, Chef’s Plate, hits the road again, this time to the home of the Liberty Bell, the best cheesesteaks you can find and the city of brotherly love – yes, Philly – where we saw two incredible chefs go head to head in a battle for the title. Both chefs cooked for every lucky guest in the house April 15th – beginning at 6:00 pm local time. The battle took place at Caribou Café, a Philadelphia Parisian Bistro located at 1126 Walnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19107.

Both chef competitors were tasked with cooking three courses (app, entree, dessert) with a French theme. Every course was plated on FOH plate ware showcasing an array of their impressive line of products. Featuring Pork from the National Pork Board, Butter from Europe, and Wines from Jean Luc Colombo.
