Casting Call: Chopped Needs Professional and Amateur Chefs

1 Aug

Food Network is looking for some Chopped champions.  People who can think quickly, creating a meal from scratch based on just a select few ingredients.  This time around on the show, though, they won’t be looking just for professional chefs to win the $10,000 dollar prize.  Chopped will be changing things up with special themed episodes just like the recent Chopped Grill Masters.  These are the possible themes for shows that you could end up cooking on:

  • Amateur Chefs
  • Teen Cooks
  • Military Chefs
  • Culinarily-Creative Moms
  • Formerly Overweight Chefs Who’ve Slimmed Down
  • Unsung Hero Chefs, Cooking for a Cause
  • Families That Cook
  • Family Feud

All you need to do is click here to get to the casting call, answer the questions, then wait for your call from Food Network.  Just like Melt Mobile did with Bobby Flay’s new show 3 Days to Open, let’s show the country what Connecticut is made of.  Also take note that there are also professional chefs wanted.

So, time for your mystery box challenge!

What would you cook with these ingredients?

Pork shoulder

Cilantro

Chocolate

Paprika

Raspberry jelly

Melt Mobile Scores TV Spot for New Bobby Flay Show, Three Days to Open

26 Mar

Update:  3 Days to Open starts July 13 at 10 pm.  Melt Mobile is featured on the July 20th episode.

A few weeks ago we got an e-mail from Food Network, asking us to spread the word about Bobby Flay’s new show, 3 Days to Open.  He’ll be following, training, and helping out a select group of food entrepreneurs from across the country for his new show (untitled as of now).  This open casting call was nationwide and we hoped that somebody from Connecticut would get a spot.

Just a few days after our post about a new gourmet grilled cheese food truck called Melt Mobile coming to Stamford, Darlene Andersen (co-owner) wrote us and said she and Diana Hall (co-owner) would meet with Bobby Flay’s people.  Well, it’s official, they will be on Bobby’s new show!  We wish them the best and look forward to seeing them on Food Network.  Also, we can’t help but think about how awesome those gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches will be…in our bellies.

They will be open for business on March 29 at the Veterans Park/Landmark Square area.  Thursday will have a special opening time of 11:30, so be sure to stop by, check out the cheesy goodness, and see why Bobby Flay is so interested in having these two talented women on his show!

Melt Mobile Food Truck Brings Gourmet Grilled Cheese to Stamford, Connecticut

12 Mar

The New Melt Mobile Menu, Starting 5/7/12

Update:  Guess who will be on the new Bobby Flay show, Three Days to Open starting July 20 at 10 pm?  Yup, details here about Melt Mobile working with Bobby Flay and the surprise cheese visit.  

Last April 1st we told you all about food trucks in Fairfield County, but they were all just cruel April Fool’s jokes.  Po’ Po’ Porridge…did you really think this was actually one?  Weirdos.  Well, Melt Mobile is no joke and is now open.

The original menu had 12 gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, but they’ve tightened things up and are now featuring 8 sandwiches.  Now, these aren’t any old ordinary boring grilled cheese sandwiches.  These are re-donk-ulous.  Plus, they’ve got a killer tomato soup that rocked our worlds.  You’ll also be able to build your own sandwich with Applewood smoked bacon, vine-ripened tomatoes, caramelized onions, and sautéed wild mushrooms.  When Bobby Flay rolled into town we had all the add-ins and it was an amazing experience.  Find Melt Mobile at Veterans Park/Landmark Square on Atlantic Street, across from Old Town Hall.  Keep up to date with their FB page and you also might learn about daily specials and even if you can see them during a Friday or Saturday night.  Yup.  That’s why you’ve gotta check them out.

So, again, the sandwiches look really awesome and here are some of our favorites:

The Meatball 3 Cheese Squeeze:  Diana’s meatballs, basil marinara, Parmesan/Romano blend, ricotta, and mozzarella on grilled ciabatta.

The Fluffernutter:  creamy peanut butter, melted bittersweet Belgian chocolate, marshmallow fluff, and caramelized bananas on crunch Terra Nova bread sprinkled with powdered sugar.

The Pork-U-Pine:  Vermont cheddar, bbq pulled pork, caramelized onions, and sliced dill pickles on buttery grilled country white bread.

***

Please note they donate 2% of their proceeds to Umbrella Club of Stamford, an organization that helps community families and children in need.

So, which sandwich are you going to try first?  Confess your love…
