In late June, executive chef Bryan Gregg from Escape, 345 Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair (973-744-0712), was crowned the winner of the 2015 Jersey Seafood Challenge held at Viking Village in Barnegat Light for his Barnegat Light Scallops, Creamless Creamed Corn and Jersey Chanterelles. This win gave him a place as the New Jersey representative at the 2015 Great American Seafood Cook Off in New Orleans on August 7 and 8. Here, he won the Seafood Showdown in which chefs were given sweet potato and gulf shrimp as the ‘secret’ ingredients and had 30 minutes to create a dish. Chef Gregg made shrimp with roasted sweet potato, charred onion and coconut milk. Congratulations are in order for this outstanding achievement. The Saturday event, the Great American Seafood Cook Off, was won by Alaska chef Beau Schooler. Chef Gregg—your dish sounds delicious and we hope to see it on your menu.
