Last night, my Chopped friends and I had a reunion! I was happy to have my fellow Food Network's Chopped judges stop by last night for dinner at Red Rooster Harlem. All of them showed including Marc Murphy, Ted Allen, Alex Guarnaschelli, Aaron Sanchez, Seamus Mullen, Amanda Freitag, Scott Conant, and even the newly crowned Iron Chef America Jeffrey Zakarian.
It was so great to see everyone get together, especially for them to be able to check out my restaurant for some food and cocktails. It was also very exciting to be able to cook for all my friends. Chef Michael Garrett and I had fun putting out some new food for them like the Mayan Shrimp, as well as some Rooster favorites like the Harlem Chowder and our Fried Yardbird.
They brought a great buzz and vibe to the restaurant last night and I was honored to share my food with them. I can't wait to reunite with them once more. Until then, check out some photos of last night's gathering below.
