This weekend was the culmination of a series internal competitions based on the Food Network show Chopped between the staffs of Uchi and Uchiko. The winner was Kyle Bentley of Uchiko, who emerged from the competition the proud owner of a brand new knife. Alas, Pat Sharpe at Texas Monthly hears we'll soon be losing Bentley to Grant Achatz's Alinea in Chicago.
And that's not all: the Uchi/ko gang is floating the idea of making the competition citywide. Congress' David Bull vs Uchi's own Tyson Cole? Bryce Gilmore of Barley Swine vs Foreign & Domestic's Ned Elliott? Dream matchups in the comments, go.
