Show 199, November 26, 2016: Chef Marlene Moore, Temptations Food Walk, Pechanga Resort & Casino

Marlene Moore at the Pechanga Microbrew Festival and Chili CookoffChef Marlene Moore is the high-energy chef at the popular Temptations Food Walk at Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula. She is famous for the signature Pechanga Fried Chicken.

Earlier this year she successfully defended her title as Pechanga’s Chili Champ by, again, besting eight other talented Pechanga chefs in the 8th Annual Pechanga Microbrew Fest & Chili Cook-off which was a benefit for Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley.

Her winning chili creation is “Temptation” Hearty Southern Style Chili.

Chef Moore, originally from Trinidad and Tobago, retained her title despite stiff competition from Chef Ronnel Capacia of Kelsey’s, who serves southwestern chili in his appetizer selections for lunch and dinner every day. Now in its eighth year, 1,459 people came to enjoy craft and microbrews, chili and music at the 2016 Pechanga Microbrew Festival.

We’ll catch-up with the always on-the-move Chef Marlene.

Keep in mind the “Temptation” Hearty Southern Style Chili is an inspired side dish for Holiday entertaining and the upcoming college football bowl game viewing parties in late December. The recipe is posted on our Website courtesy of Chef Marlene :

Also, by popular demand, Chef Marlene’s championship “Temptation” Hearty Southern Style Chili (with a side of Chef Marlene’s signature corn bread) will be available at American Classics in the Temptations Food Walk at Pechanga for December, January & February.

Pechanga is your Personal Chef for the Holidays. Complete Christmas dinners (Turkey or Bone-in Prime Rib) are available to go with all the trimmings.
