RhodyBeat’s Celebrity Chef competition yielded some mouth-watering entries, but the ultimate winner was a savory dish. Entered by Michael Latour, pictured, under the pseudonym “Chef P-Lats,” the Braised Short Rib Ravioli took the cake.
The winner was based on combined scores given to the entries by the guest judges: Liz Krause from Elizabeth of Portofino; Diane and Jim Belknap from the Greenville Inn; and Dean Scanlon from L’Attitude. Latour received a $100 gourmet food basket courtesy of Baker’s Baskets and will get his own 15-minute YouTube cooking show, which will be available for viewing after the New Year on www.YouTube.com/WarwickBeacon.
Other contenders for the top spot included Catherine Amoriggi’s Apple-Pear Crisp and Kevin Martin’s Lemon Meringue Cupcakes. To see Latour’s recipe and the others entered into the competition, or to enter our December “Winter Wonderland Holiday Décor” contest, visit www.RhodyBeat.com/contests.
