Aside from blogging, I also do occasional articles for our hyperlocal online newspaper, TheAlternativePress.com.  My latest assignment was to interview my neighbor, Wade Burch, who just won Round 1 of Food Network's "Chopped Champions."  

I came home yesterday from spending the day at the beach with my three kids, fed them dinner, and put them to bed.  Wade called to do the phone interview around 10pm and I wrote my piece last night in a quiet house.  How cool is it that we get to do work like this?  Writing and blogging from home is seriously the best job ever.

 

Check out my interview piece with friend, neighbor, master chef, and culinary celebrity, Wade Burch.

Chopped Champion Wade Burch of New Providence Headed to Grand Finale of "Chopped Champions" on the Food Network

NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - New Providence resident and master chef, Wade Burch, just won the first round of "Chopped Champions" Tuesday night on the Food Network.    His first win was aired in December when he beat out three other chefs to take home the $10,000 prize on "Chopped".  This time he is one of 16 previous winners competing for the $50,000 grand prize.

"Chopped" is a cooking competition show that pits four seasoned chefs against one another in a last-man-standing elimination battle.  The chefs are given a mystery basket of ingredients with which they must create a winning dish utilizing all ingredients in a short time frame.  Each dish is judged on taste, presentation, and creativity.  At the end of each course, one contestant is eliminated or "chopped," narrowing the playing field until only one remains as the winner.

Wade knew the show and the kitchen this time around, so he felt ready, "almost like coming home after being away at school."  However, he did not have nearly the same amount of time to prepare and practice before this competition.  "We filmed on Cinco de Mayo;  last time we filmed in March.  My schedule wouldn't allow for as much practice.  We were getting ready to open Neely's and had just opened four new patios.  It was crazy."

Despite the lack of practice, he still managed to do his research.
