Breaking News: Chef Jesse

ULTIMATE CHEF OF BERGEN COUNTY NAMED

Chef Jesse Jones, owner of Heart and Soul Catering, was named the Ultimate Chef of Bergen County, an Iron Chef style competition held  March 22 at Chef Central, Paramus.

Jones competed against last year’s winner, Christine Nunn of Picnic Caterers and the soon to be opened Picnic Restaurant in Fair Lawn.

In earlier rounds of the Ultimate Chef competition, Jones won against John Marsh of Green Door Café, Tenafly; Adam Weiss of Esty Street, Park Ridge; and Ike Koutrakos of Cooking In Your Kitchen.

Jones and Nunn prepared four dishes (two starters, an entrée, and a dessert) for a panel of three judges. The "secret" ingredient they needed to use in each dish was rice.
