If you missed craveRADIO this past Sunday, you missed a whole lot of talking.

Picture this if you will. Twenty teams of chefs, each paired with a local fire fighter in a battle to ferret out the very best grill master. These chefs are talented and the firefighters can blaze in a kitchen as well. The two-man (and women) teams will compete in the day-long competition for a chance to win $1,000, and will undergo a trial by fire in this elimination match. All the proceeds for the event raises cash and awareness for the Parkland Burn Unit in Dallas.
This year’s Chefs on Fire has a few new items on the agenda including a celebrity chef round where they are paired with fire chiefs. The chefs on chiefs include Randall Copeland from Restaurant Ava, Samir Dhurandhar from Nick & Sam’s, Graham Dodd from Central 214 and John Tesar from the upcoming Spoon restaurant. Continue reading
