On June 5th, Grocery Outlet hosted a Fresh & Frugal Chef Showdown at our Crown Hill store. Our premise: 3 student chefs from the Art Institute of Seattle compete for tuition money by creating a restaurant-quality meal for a family of 4 (plus wine!), using ingredients solely from Grocery Outlet.
This event was a fantastic example of what creativity and frugality can do when combined. Our chefs created and executed delicious meals, and they all came in under their goal of $20. We're even going to post the receipts to prove it!
Follow along this week as we post their dishes and recipes. In the meantime, here are a few pictures from the competition.
Our esteemed judges: Jill Taylor from STAR 101.5, Chef Jason Wilson from Crush, Lorna Yee from Seattle Magazine, and Marlee Ginter from KOMO 4.
