If Chef Joey is the winner of this episode, his $500 will go to Best Buddies in Western Pennsylvania as his charity of choice. They provide assistance to those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The Market: Bedner’s Farm Market
The Bedner’s Farm Market is a family-owner farm that began in 1917 and expanded into a store in 1956. The farmers market is in Upper Saint Clair, bordering Bridgeville, that features an amazing array of flowers, herbs, and lots of fresh produce. The chefs each get 15 minutes and $100 to purchase their supplies for the meals they will create.
The Challenge: Breakfast for Dinner
Our chefs must create a three-course meal using only foods from the market – and the meals must also contain these three ingredients:
- Pasture Perfect Beef
- Maple Syrup
- Bonus challenge: This ingredient must relate to “the most important ‘peel’ of the day”
Chef Nissa’a and Chef Joey will only have 45 minutes to create a masterful meal and wow this episode’s judges. Our judging panel today is:
