We missed the 10pm showing, so we trooped it out and watched the late night 1am re-run of Eating House chef Giorgio Rapicavoli appearing once again on Chopped. on the Food Network But this time it was the Ultimate Champions edition and put Giorgio against three other very talented chefs to qualify for the Ultimate Champions round against other classes of winning groups including celebrities, heroes, and more.
But on last night’s episode, despite Giorgio missing one of his ingredients in his appetizer dish (coconut shavings), he managed to steal the show with far superior plates in every round and ended up as victor of the episode.
We definitely hope that Giorgio continues on to take the $50,000 grand prize and the new car. We want him to really show them what that Miami flava’ is all about.
Good luck Giorgio.
