The steaks were high

On January 25, 2016 the Underground Chef Co. team took over R&D Restaurant for our first battle of 2016 featuring Chef Terry Port  and Chef Harrison Hennick. Before the battle kicked-off, fans were treated to a special live Big Green Egg demo led by UCC Ambassador and Godfather of the Grill - Chef Ted Reader. Once our judges were in place, the secret ingredients revealed (steak and lobster), Chef Port and Chef Harrison treated the audience to an hour jam-packed with culinary action. (VIDEO: UCCxCityNews)

Thank you to our judges: Chef Matt Basile (Fidel Gastro's, Lisa Marie), Chef Tom Brodi (Oliver & Bonacini), Krista Faist (FoodismTO), Chef Ted Reader and our special guest judge Chef Rob Rainford. This battle could not have been fueled without the support of our amazing sponsors: Blue Goose Pure Foods, Hilite Fine Foods, Big Green Egg, Siempre Tequila and MOOG Audio. UCC would also like to thank John Kane Photography.
