A packed house was in attendance for the 2012  Fill the Grill Competition finals at Whole Foods Market Coral Gables last evening, with many attendees having watched the previous two elimination rounds. As people took their seats with their complimentary wine and beer, the evening's host, chef Michael Jacobs, introduced the two finalists.

Alfredo Montero of Mr. Good Stuff and Shawn Henry of Latin Burger & Taco were about to face off for the championship. Each contestant received $20 and 20 minutes in which to shop for groceries to cook a meal for each of the three judges.

After the shopping round was complete, the chefs had 20 minutes to cook and plate their items. The final score was to be based on presentation, taste, and originality of each dish.
