On October 11, 2018, at the studios of PBS’ award-winning cooking show, “America’s Test Kitchen”, three amazing Sous Chefs (Jeremy Harrison, David Hollis & William Smith) battled it out in a head-to-head three course cooking competition.
Celebrity Chefs Jeff Henderson (Food Network personality & NY Times Bestselling Author) and Christopher Scott (Bravo’s “Top Chef” Season 15 Finalist & Chef/Ower of Brooklyn’s Butterfunk Kitchen) flew into Boston to Mentor the Sous Chefs, and guided them through menu planning, shopping and food preparation. Future Chefs graciously provided the teams with prep kitchen space. Boston’s own DJ Act One provided the soundtrack for the evening, while three Judges & 75 guests enjoyed the food, and cheered the teams onto victory.
Chef William took the win, but there were definitely no losers that evening – talented local Chefs showcased skill and craft, great food and fun was had by all, and more.BOSTON helped Returning Citizens remind the City of Boston that no matter our pasts, there’s more. ahead for us all.
