“Blackgirl Magic is no doubt what’s cooking in the 757” 

On January 20th, this culinary duo will launch a chopped style cooking event, featuring four local chef’s, cooking and chopping their way to being crowned a Top Chef. We at the judges table, will cast our votes based upon a strong list of criteria, including presentation. Good luck to the participants…chop…chop!

Celebrity shout out goes to comedian Lunell Campbell, the queen of funny. How cool was it for Chef Tasha to have Lunell join her in the studio kitchen of the Hampton Roads Show. I personally follow Lunell via social media, she can cook up some greatness herself, so two snaps Chef Tasha, you’ve won, Lunell raved about your jambalaya.

O MY LOAF….

Congratulations to Chef Beatrice on the launch of her eye-catching culinary pop up shop, “O MY LOAF”. Serving sweet homemade treats, like sweet potato cheesecake, I can see this one becoming a number one consumer favorite.

Entrepreneurship isn’t easy by any means, salute to these two young woman, who are quickly becoming the movers and shakers in the 757 area. For future events, you can follow both Chefs via Facebook.

BRAVO QUEENS ~
