Monday, 15 April 2013

April 15--  A chef who specializes in Italian cooking won the Golden Onion in the second annual professional chef's competition Sunday as part of the Vidalia Onion Festival.

Chef Daniel Chance, executive chef of Campagnolo in Atlanta, says the flavor of the Vidalia Onion in fanstastic and is one of the few than can stand on its own or elevate any dish.

Image"I showed the versatility of the Vidalia Onion.  I did it four different ways and I think that's what won it, and the flavor, of course.  I did a scallop stuffed Vidalia Onion with an onion puree, a pickled onion and a fresh raw onion on top," he explained.

Among the judges who evaluated the dishes of 12 chefs from around the state was last year's Golden Onion winner Hilary White, owner of The Hil, A Restaurant in Serenbe in Chattahoochee Hills.

"The competition is fantastic.  There was lots of creativity and good use of Vidalia Onions.  The field included a good mix of all different types of talent and we had chefs from all over the state.  I think it was fantastic," she said.
