There’s Going To Be A Chopped Champions Showdown In Portland’s Old Port This Weekend
In the past couple years, several of Maine's best chefs have found themselves in competitions on Food Network. The most popular show for Maine chefs has been Chopped, an elimination-style cook-off featuring baskets of random ingredients that the chefs must transform into high quality dishes. One Portland chef, Matt Ginn of Evo Kitchen + Bar, has competed on the show and been victorious. He even returned to compete again as part of Chopped Champions, a spinoff featuring past winners battling each other.
Which brings us to this weekend at Ginn's home base, Evo Kitchen + Bar, where Ginn will once again face off against another Chopped Champion, Airis Johnson in a special event at the restaurant. According to Portland Food Map, reservations are being taken for the duel on Saturday, July 13th, that will include a 5-course meal as well as a chance to meet the celebrity chefs.
If you're interested in attending this special event, you're encouraged to contact Evo Kitchen + Bar and make a reservation.
