Seafood Competition Winner

Posted September 30, 2016 at 5:44 am by

gerrenVin­ny’s Ris­torante has a Sous Chef named Ger­ren Allen who has a big deal com­ing up soon. He’s been all over the coun­try in his career with many dif­fer­ent food and cook­ing relat­ed achieve­ments under his belt.

He was a semi-final­ist on Hel­l’s Kitchen in 2009 (and would have been on the nation­al­ly tele­vised com­pe­ti­tion if not for some unavoid­able things requir­ing his attention)…

He was a final­ist and made an appear­ance on Cut­throat Kitchen’s Sea­son 8 last year…

And just this past August, he won the Taste of Amer­i­ca Chal­lenge in Seafood for the state of Washington.

Next step is he will be head­ing across the coun­try to com­pete as Team Vin­ny’s in the 2016 World Food Cham­pi­onship in Orange Beach, Alaba­ma. At stake is his chance to win $10,000 in one of their cat­e­gories, and then pos­si­bly $100,000 at the Final Table!

Here’s wish­ing you the best of luck Gerren!

  1. Great jon Chef!! I went High School Ger­ren, he was a ded­i­cat­ed indi­vid­ual back then. Great to see he is doing so well and pro­duc­ing award win­ning food across the coun­try!! Keep it up and look for­ward to hear­ing about future accomplishments.
