We now have a chance to catch-up with Chef Andrew Gruel of Slapfish, today’s Guest Host. You can also see him as a regular judge on the first season of Food Network’s “Food Truck Face Off.” His second Food TV show is already in production. Stay tuned…
Gruel is giving one lucky person the opportunity to contribute their culinary genius to his restaurant menu with a dish named in their honor. Chef Gruel will select three finalists and the public will vote for their favorite dish via social media to select a winner prior to the opening.
In conjunction with the opening of Slapfish’s third Orange County location in Newport Beach on February 2nd, guests are invited to submit their own recipes for a seafood dish to be featured on the new menu. One winner will have their dish on the menu for two months at the Newport Beach location and will be able to eat it for free each time they go to the restaurant.
Also Chef Andrew provides us some very helpful pointers on what to look for when buying farm-raised fish. This will be the basis for a longer, more in-depth segment in the future.
