What does it take to be the Top Local Chef?
It wasn't easy, but we narrowed down the contestants to six finalists. Then LocalShops1 Girl and Saucy Queen Michele Northrup surprised each one with a GALLON of the not-so-mystery ingredient, Chai Sweet Chili, an all-natural chili sauce infused with organic chai tea.
Finalists have two weeks to come up with their concoction. On May 20, theywill face the celebrity judges during a special event in St. Petersburg.
The dishes will be judged on flavor, plating and best use of the not-so-secret ingredient.
