Anyone who knows me knows that I have a crazy addiction to watermelon. A watermelon a day keeps the doctor away? Well… I wish that was true!
So it’s absolutely not weird that I would be the person to put watermelon on the grill! This recipe below is the perfect dessert or side dish to any grilled meat and BBQ. It’s refreshing, yet caramelized flavor, pairs perfectly with the fattiness and juiciness of any meat.
Recently selected as an “Official Qualifying Event” for the World Food Championships, Culinary Fight Club is no walk in the park! The Windy City Chili Chitown event held at Morgan Manufacturing was a competition that brought fire and smoke, literally!
What is Culinary Fight Club? Culinary Fight Club hosts live cooking competitions, which they call TasteBudChallenges, that are currently in Chicago and Atlanta, but rapidly growing nationally. No two events are the same. The teams of cooks race to choose 15 ingredients in 45 seconds from the pantry of food provided. Once the ingredients are collected, each team has 60 minutes to construct a dish that depicts their take on the monthly theme. These Chefs and cooks of all levels around the area compete for a “Golden Ticket,” to advance to the Super Bowl of “food sport” events, the World Food Championships! Once the timer hit 60 minutes, the audience members and judges sample and vote on a winning dish.
The most amazing part about this concept is that the Culinary Fight Club is partnered with Fight2Feed, which 20% of proceeds are donated. This is an organization that partners with top restaurants and food trucks to provide service and support to hungry men, women and children. Read more
