What Goes Up, Must Come Down
The power of an ingredient should never be underestimated and in this QuickFire Challenge, chefs work in teams of two to create a progressive tasting menu that highlights just one single ingredient. Judging is four-time James Beard Award-winner and the owner of Philadelphia’s Zahav, chef Michael Solomonov. In the Elimination Challenge, the chefs harness their wild side to create a dish that combines a luxury ingredient with a carnival classic and serve it to guests at the country’s largest theme park, Canada’s Wonderland. Joining our judges is Top Chef U.S. alumni and the owner of Fox and the Knife in Boston, Mass., chef Karen Akunowicz.
