Chef Neil Fuentes, the Singing Chef, is making his return to Food Network this Saturday, 12/6, at 1 pm. Previously, Chef Fuentes who recently opened the sizzling Venezuelan restaurant Jojoto in Branford, was a competitor on Chopped. But, ironically enough, he chopped himself . . . well, more like his finger. But, he’s back, and he’s back for redemption!
He’ll be on Rewrapped, a show that is hosted by Joey Fatone and asks three competitors to recreate a famous product like a Twinkie (that was a great episode, btw). From there, the chefs need to use that product in different dishes and desserts. For Chef Fuentes’s episode, “Pudding Up a Fight,” the competitors need to try to replicate a Swiss Miss Triple Chocolate Dream Pudding.
Watch it live on Food Network or get down to Jojoto in Branford for a special screening with Neil on hand! If you come early, he’ll also be showing his episode of Chopped. The fun begins at 12, so make sure to get your reservations by calling (203) 208-4141.
Here’s a synopsis of the episode to get you all warm, tingly, and jiggly inside:
“Pudding Up a Fight”The proof is in the Swiss Miss Triple Chocolate Dream pudding! Three chefs must impress the judges with their recreation of this snack to avoid elimination. But one chef’s overuse of white chocolate may spell disaster. Then in the Innovate Round, one Rewrapper decides to dress coleslaw with Swiss Miss Pudding. Is it an outrage or a stroke of dreamy brilliance? Find out as Joey Fatone hosts this velvety episode of Rewrapped!
