The 2015 South Beach Wine & Food Festival is in full swing, and its flagship event, the Amstel Light Burger Bash, was back with a host of familiar faces as well as a slew of new ones. Thirty leading chefs and thousands of hungry fans gathered under one giant tent to serve and enjoy some truly creative and delicious burgers, and, in the end, Josh Capon’s now-famous Bash Burger took the win.

Even though a stiff breeze was blowing, the heat was on to see who would take the crown. Capon has won several New York Burger Bashes with his Bash Burger, topped with caramelized onion and bacon jam, pickles, American cheese, and secret sauce, but this was his first time taking the win in South Beach, at a competition that’s been dominated by Bobby Flay and Michael Symon in recent years.

“There’s no place I’d rather be right now than looking for my first title in the sand,” he told us before the event started. “It’s perfection on a bun. It’s the money bite.”

Pincho Factory, which served a “Croquesta” burger (brisket, short rib, and chuck croquette topped with Swiss, pickles, mustard, and mayo in a brioche bun) took the year’s People’s Choice award.

Shake Shack, which won People’s Choice last year with its ShackMeister burger (topped with fried onion strings), debuted a new burger this year: the Roadside Shack, topped with bacon, American cheese, and caramelized onions.

“It’s great to be able to get together with friends and talk shop, and it’s great to be in Miami,” Jose Garces, who served his Whiskey King burger (maple bourbon glazed cippolini, blue cheese, and foie gras) told us. Toro’s Ken Oringer, who served a beef burger topped with French onion soup mayo (genius), jalapeño chips, and foie gras onions, echoed the sentiment, saying “it’s just so much fun to be here. You can be so creative with a burger, and I get to cook with some of my idols.”

Other standout burgers included Tim Love’s Rib Eye Burger (topped with lamb bacon, arugula, and roasted red pepper hollandaise); The Meatball Shop’s Reuben Burger (topped with pastrami spice, Swiss cheese, Thousand Island, and sauerkraut), Morimoto’s Short Rib Burger with homemade pickles, and Delicatessen’s Beer and Bacon Cheeseburger, with beer-braised onions and cheddar.

  • Stephen Coe (winner of Episode 41.1 - "Ultimate Redemption" and runner-up of Grill Masters 2017) (winner)

Notes: Part five of a five-part tournament. *Since the episode was 60 minutes like normal and had four chefs versus three as in prior tournaments with the final round as a face-off against a professional chef for a chance at the prize, two chefs were eliminated in the entreé round, and only the entreé round factored into the judges' decision. The stuffed doughnuts in round 1 were stuffed with vanilla ice cream that was covered in rainbow sprinkles. The potted meat in round 2 was made with chicken and pork in a can. The deep-fried milk in round 3 was sweet custard thickened with corn starch, then breaded and deep-fried. Lobster ravioli was Stephen's choice in round 3, as in Beat Bobby Flay with both chefs cooking the winning chef's signature dish and was 45 minutes instead of the usual 30 to accommodate the crossover format. **At the end of round 3, the judges in rounds 1 and 2 were replaced with new judges for a blind taste test, similar to the end of round 2 in "Beat Bobby Flay" with judging who made a better version of the dish and the winner receiving $50,000. And as a result of the chefs not being able to describe their own dishes, Ted did so instead.

Two chefs and two judges would compete in the finale for the largest prize offered in the show thus far: $100,000, which would be donated to “Turn Up! Fight Hunger” if a judge won.

Stephen Coe was the winner of the 'Beat Bobby Flay' Chopped tournament (as well as competitor in several previous Chopped episodes). The "hootenanny" dish in round 1 is a baked dessert similar to a German pancake. The "zen garden" in round 3 was edible rocks (candy) on sugar "sand".

A coin toss decided which group chose the order for the first two rounds the judges won the toss and chose to go second. All rounds lasted 30 minutes. Despite the judges losing, a smaller donation was made to ‘Turn Up! Fight Hunger’ in honor of Chef Marc’s performance. Because he technically won his “Beat The Judge” episode, Chef Demetrio becomes Chopped’s first 5-time winner by winning this episode.

In round 2 she moved Jennifer to Courtnee's station, Courtnee went to David's station, and David moved to Jennifer's station. Then she made them go to a station they hadn't been to before: David on Courtnee's station, Jennifer on David's station, and Courtnee on Jennifer's station. In round 3 David and Jennifer switched three times, finishing at each others' station.

  • Melvin “Boots” Johnson, Executive Chef from New York, NY (winner)

Notes: This is part 3 of a 5 part grilling competition. Each episode features four chefs who specialize in a specific region's barbecue this episode featured Memphis, TN. Chef Campbell is the sister of former Chopped contestant Erin Campbell. A basket item in the appetizer round (BBQ nachos) was originated by chef Mellor. The winner, despite currently working in New York, grew up with ‒ and cooks ‒ Memphis style barbecue.

  • Appetizer: short ribs, spicy mealworms, Texas toast, okra
  • Entrée: chile con queso, rainbow carrots, deep-fried barbecue sauce, beef brisket
  • Dessert: beef sausage, ruby red grapefruit, Texas pecan cake, Belgian-style wheat ale
  • Sloan Rinaldi, Pit Master and Owner from Houston, TX (eliminated after the appetizer)
  • Carlo Casanova, Pit Master from San Antonio, TX (eliminated after the entrée)
  • Esaul Ramos, Pit Master and Owner from San Antonio, TX (eliminated after the dessert)
  • Leonard Botello, Pit Master and Owner from Brenham, TX (winner)

Notes: This is part 4 of a 5 part grilling competition. Each episode features four chefs from a region known for their barbecue this episode featured Texas. The third judge in this episode, Ernest Servantes, is a Texas native and winner of the first Chopped Grill Masters Tournament. Chopped normally obscures brand names, but the third basket featured Blue Moon wheat ale (a sponsor of the tournament).

  • Appetizer: bacon-wrapped smoked doughnuts, pork porterhouse, corn shoots, pimento cheese
  • Entrée: charcoal cocktail, baby turnips, mashed potato sundae, standing rib roast
  • Dessert: tiered cornbread cake, marshmallow spread, figs, candy filled piñata
  • Leonard Botello, Pit Master and Owner from Brenham, TX (eliminated after the appetizer)
  • Adam Hughes, Pit Master from Edenton, NC (eliminated after the entrée)
  • Stephanie Wilson, Pit Master & Co-Owner from Kansas City, MO (eliminated after the dessert)
  • Melvin “Boots” Johnson, Executive Chef from New York, NY (winner)

Notes: This is the finale of 2018's grilling competition. The finalists represented Missouri, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas, all competing for a chance at $50,000. The piñata in the dessert basket was shaped like a red chili pepper and filled with caramel squares, malt balls, strawberry hard candies, and taffy.

  • Dessert: cleaver, champagne, champagne flute
  • N/A (eliminated after the appetizer)

Notes: Ted Allen hosted this special Holiday themed compilation episode featuring highlights from previously-aired episodes, both holiday and non-holiday. Throughout the episode, Ted opened baskets featuring tongue-in-cheek ingredients for simple holiday treats: the first basket was for a holiday variant on the Moscow Mule cocktail, the second basket was for a simple affogato, and the third basket allowed for Ted to simply use the cleaver to chop off the top of the champagne bottle.

Plum Luv Foods! with Chef Plum Chef Plum makes the intro duction and talks a little about food reality tv! 00:29:00 Plumluvfoods no Chef Plum makes the intro duction and talks a little about food reality tv!


RELATED ARTICLES

'I'm sick of trying to juggle daily life and healthy eating for my darling offspring, compounded and made oh-so-much harder by a super-fussy seven year old.

'I'm tired of teatime battles and dishing up variations of pasta and baked beans (usually in the same dish!).

She admits that Mathilde is still a little fussy but it has made a difference to her eating

Beverly has started blogging her recipes, which are vegetarian and vegan and can be adapted for meat-eaters. Pictured: Brie wedges (left) and marinated tofu (right)

While Beverly admits that the task certainly has been trying at times, she has found it a rewarding process. Pictured: Quails eggs with potatoes and peas and a pasta cake

'To increase the pressure on myself and my already infexible busy regime I thought it would be more 'fun' to turn this into a challenge.'

While Beverly admits that the task certainly has been trying at times, she has found it a rewarding process.

She continued: 'I've really enjoyed it, it has been a big challenge, but I've been able to introduce foods that we may never have had before.

'On holidays I've researched local recipes and used some of them as inspiration too.

'Mathilde is still a little fussy, but I got her and the others involved in creating meal plans, and it has definitely made a difference.

Beverley says the challenge helped increase the fruit and veg count in her families meals too. Pictured: The family round the dinner table

Her partner Paul, a sales manager, and son Lucas, are both meat eaters so meat is often added to Beverley's vegetarian dishes. Pictured: An orzo rice salad (left) and dried fruit bites (right)

Beverly plans to carry her meals into the new year and will start coming up with more recipes from there. Pictured: Poffertjes (Dutch Pancakes)

'It has reaffirmed the types of food she likes, what she definitely doesn't like, and because she has had an input it's encouraged her to try new things.'

Beverley juggles being a mum of four with her part-time communications and marketing assistant job at the Lawrence Batley Theatre.

She set herself a few rules - no repetition, a home-cooked evening meal and trying new ingredients and flavours, including spices.

One recipe, for Tandoori Tofu Kebabs, saw her subtly introduce spice with ingredients the children already like. In another meal for Vegetable Waterzooi she took inspiration from a trip to Bruges.

Waterzooi is a chicken or fish stew-like dish, but she recreated a vegetarian version of it for the family using tofu instead of meat. While it divided the family, the stock was used for a soup they enjoyed.

And it's helped increase the fruit and veg count in her families meals too. As autumn set in, she made her children a Root Vegetable and Bean Stew with Herby Dumplings - eight types of vegetables, plus two types of bean were packed into the dish, which went down a treat.

She added: 'I think I'll continue into January then assess what has worked and been popular and plan our meals from there.'

Her partner Paul, a sales manager, and son Lucas, are both meat eaters so meat is often added to Beverley's vegetarian dishes. It means many of her recipes are suitable for all.

Street Fight At Mill Street Brewpub

I'm sure you've heard about this by now, but it's still worth mentioning here, and the event should definitely be worth the ticket price.

On Thursday evening, Mill Street Brewery will be going head to head in a beer vs. wine competition with 13th Street Winery from St. Catherine's down at the brewpub in the Distillery District.

Four courses paired with both Mill Street products and 13th Street products will be sampled and judged by a number of individuals from the industry, including Josh Rubin and myself on the beer side.

Peter Bodnar-Rod from 13th Street and Mill Street Brewmaster, Joel Manning, will introduce each course and comment on the wine/beer paired with it and discuss reasons why the particular pairing offered works. Judges will then sample and evaluate each course before trying to determine winners.

Mill Street Brewpub
55 Mill Street (Distillery District)
6:30pm - Tickets: $89
For tickets call - (416) 681-0338
