Fried Chicken Throwdown

Last night was La Vida Hospitality's 2nd Annual Fried Chicken Throw-down. Blonde Cravings was lucky enough to be selected as one of the 7 judges. Competing in this years competition was Chefs Sean and Matt from Fork + Flask, Chef Billy from Taco Reho, Chef Dom from Crooked Hammock and Bob the Rehoboth Foodie

Judging was based on three VERY IMPORTANT fried chicken categories:

1. Crispiness

2. Flavor

3. Juiciness

Favorite part of this dish for us was the flavor of the chicken. One of the ways Bob flavored it was with Starbucks tea! So unique and delicious!

As you can imagine it was pretty difficult to pick a winner. We were all laughing because we were told to rank everything on a scale of 1 - 10 but it really turned out to be a scale of 6 - 10 because everything was SO GOOD! 

But ultimately a winner had to be chosen...

CONGRATS CHEF SEAN & MATT OF FORK + FLASK!

Again with another food competition win. These guys are on a roll! 

Also a big congrats to Bob The Foodie for coming in 2nd place!
