|Nothing like a little friendly competition.|
Round two of the annual Fill The Grill competition at Whole Foods Market in Coral Gables saw another two food truck chefs in a cook-off to see who had the superior grilling abilities. Eileen Andrade of CUBANCUBE and Alfredo Montero of Mr. Good Stuff faced off in a battle for culinary supremacy.
Each contestant had 20 minutes and $20 to purchase ingredients needed to prepare plates for three judges. A pantry with basics like salt, pepper, oil, and seasonings was provided. After the purchase phase, each chef had 20 minutes to prepare and plate their dish. Judges scored on taste, presentation, and originality.
As the first clock started to count down 20 minutes, both chefs rushed out to the selling floor, basket and $20 gift card in hand.
Montero and Andrade both started their shopping sprees with protein. Montero chose some spicy chorizo, while Andrade opted for some fresh mahi.
