Nadia Chaudhury is the editor of Eater Austin covering food and pop culture, as well as a photographer, writer, and frequent panel moderator and podcast guest.

Vox Table’s executive pastry chef Annabelle Turner is headed to the small screen next month. She’ll appear on an episode of food competition television show Chopped, airing on Thursday, October 6.

The theme of Turner’s episode is duck, titled "On the Quack Burner." Other surprise ingredients included seaweed pasta, spicy alcohol, and sweet cream.

In her honor, Vox Table is screening the episode that night, and serving her flatbread concoction, which she created on the show. That off-menu dish will be available beginning that evening through Saturday, October 8.

The Food Network series involves four chefs creating three course meals (appetizer, entree, dessert) using ingredients given to them right on the spot for three different rounds. The winning chef receives $10,000.

Before joining the Vox Table team, Turner most recently opened boozy desserts spot Nightcap, as well as Paggi House, Perla’s, and shuttered Artz Rib House.

Other Austin chefs who’ve competed on the show include former Swift's Attic's Zack Northcutt, and then-Second Bar + Kitchen, now Boiler Nine’s Jason Stude, plus others.
