“Minced” Has Local Chefs Competing For A Good Cause
Sprout hosted their first cooking competition Tuesday evening known as “Minced.” Much like the show “Chopped,” the event pitted three chefs against each other and had them use mystery ingredients in their dishes, all while the clock was ticking down.
Chef Fred Stumbo, representing Sage on Laurel in Brainerd, Chef Paul Ruszat, representing St. Cloud Hospital and Chef Scotty Stocco from the Iron Range Eatery in Crosby faced off in the ultimate cooking challenge.
After three rounds, the Chef left standing was Chef Scotty Stocco, who was named the Master Chef and won the people’s choice awards.
It was a night of community fun but all with a goal of celebrating local foods. With over 100 people in attendance, Sprout hopes to get them thinking of about new ingredients, local products and healthy eating.
The funds raised at tonight’s event will go towards launching the new Sprout Mobile Market, aimed at closing the missing meal gap in rural Minnesota.
