|Brooks vs. Erickson: Game on!|
So which two chefs have accepted this year's epic challenge in which only won can emerge victorious and take home the prized skillet of excellence?
Aaron Brooks, executive chef of Edge Steak and Bar will face Todd Erickson, chef/partner at Haven and Huahua's Taqueria in this year's battle for culinary supremacy. Last year, Eating House's Giorgio Rapicavoli met Tongue & Cheek's Jamie DeRosa in the battlefield, with Rapicavoli emerging victorious.
Brooks and Erickson have met in the culinary arena before, at the Heart of a Chef event for the Florida Heart Research Institute at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, with the chef from Down Under winning.
