Local contestants are being served up a challenge in celebration of Food Network’s new supermarket-themed cooking competition, Guy’s Grocery Games, hosted by best-selling cookbook author and successful restaurateur Guy Fieri. The show, which premiered on Sunday, October 20th and will continue to air on Sundays at 8pm ET/PT and 7pm CT, is set in a grocery store where four talented chefs compete against each other through three cooking challenges, as they must navigate their way through the aisles adhering to a number of “real-world” culinary challenges to create tasty dishes. The chefs must rely on their improvisation, gamesmanship and culinary skills for a chance to win up to $20,000.
The local challenge will take place on Saturday, November 9th at 12 to 2pm at Super Foodtown of Ocean, 1560 Rte 35 in Ocean Township. Four local contestants will be given up to three challenges to test their shopping and culinary expertise. The winner of the local challenge will receive $1,000 Cash. Deborah Smith (that’s me) Publisher of JerseyBites.com will be serving as the judge of the competition and radio DJ, Paul VanDusen, from WKMK-FM will be filling Guy’s role.
Local radio stations, WBBO, WKMK and WZZY-FM, are airing details on how to be selected as one of the four lucky contestants who will battle it out at Super Foodtown of Ocean for a chance to bring home the grand prize and the bragging rights of being the local champion of “Guy’s Grocery Games Challenge.” One contestant will be selected the morning of at the Store, so if you are not selected through the radio, come on down and be a part of the audience, maybe even our fourth contestant! We’ll be picking the 4th contestant at 12:30pm, so anyone interested should be on site by that time!
