Local Chef In Supermarket Chef Showdown 2012
Unfortunately, his Veggie Enchilada Casserole lost to an Italian Pie whipped up by Amber Pruett of Publix Super Markets Inc. Pruett will go on to compete against the winners of the Ethnic, Indulgent and Health Alternatives cagetories on Thursday.
Roach, of North Adams, was selected with four other chefs from hundreds who submitted recipes.
He introduced his enchilada dinner to the three judges by describing it as "a pudgy white guys version of Mexican when he's cooking in Dallas."
"The classic clean out the pantry dish" was presented as a hearty and wholesome offering with cilantro coleslaw on the side. He was the last of the five finalists to present his dish.
All the competitors received a gold medal for being finalists. Here's the feed recorded live from Ustream. ( It was having audio difficulties.)
