In a very tight race, Chef Freddy Vargas was crowned both “People’s Choice” and overall champion of Chef’s Plate 5. He took home the Chef’s Roll trophy, a Golden Ticket to compete in the World Food Championships for a chance to win $100,000, a custom knife by Aura Knifeworks, and a commemorative bottle of Nolet’s Gin. Both contestants got gift bags from Made for Chefs.
