Boka chef Giuseppe Tentori has selected three finalists for his Stump the Chef contest. The three allegedly hard-to-find ingredients will hit Twitter at noon today and followers have the weekend to vote on which they think Tentori will have the hardest time sourcing.
The entry with the most votes will be revealed on Monday and then Tentori will have three days to source that ingredient. If unable to find it, the chef will cook a six-course tasting menu for the winner and a guest at Boka for free. And if Tentori is somehow able to find the ingredient before the winning dinner, it may just show up in the meal.
To vote, make sure you post your comment to Twitter with hashtag #stumpthechef so they can track it. So which will you vote for? Here are the top three ingredients for Stump the Chef:
1) Black (Silkie) Chicken from @brian_eng
2) Karasumi (salted mullet roe) from @mountsac
3) Breast milk from @750_mL
And is Tentori nervous? Maybe not, but he admits finding these won't be as easy as popping into Whole Foods. "I am going to have a tough time searching for some of those products," he said. "But this is the beauty of the contest."
