Michele Northrup of Intensity Academy talks with Renata Plevova, co-owner of St Pete Bagel in St. Petersburg.
"Our bakery has been operating in St. Petersburg since 1987, and our chefs have more than 25 years of combined experience," Chef Oldrich Pleva and his son, Lukas Pleva, write. "This contest will provide us with an opportunity to showcase our skills in a friendly and supportive community of supporters and customers. It will challenge us to come up with a new and exciting bagel flavor, while adding culinary diversity to the contest." St. Pete Bagel is one of seven contestants in LocalShops1.com's Top (Local) Chef competition, which takes place Saturday, July 30, at Canvas Zoo, 1750 North Hercules, Clearwater. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are free and available right here on LocalShops1.com, under the Events tab.
