Eleven restaurants came together on Sunday, February 17, to offer up their tasty versions of a well-known soup in an effort to raise funds for Saint Frances Animal Center and take home some bragging rights from the third annual She-Crab Cook-Off.
And plenty of people came out on the chilly day to get their share of that awesome soup.
The results are below, with one popular vote winner, a winner chosen by a panel of celebrity judges and you can't count out the puppies' choice winner.
Popular Choice Winner: Hanser House
Celebrity Judge Choice: Salt Water Creek Cafe
Puppies' Choice: BisQit
Thanks to all the restaurants for participating in this great event.
"No bland food allowed!"
If you hear that phrase yelled down the halls of the International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach, you best be seasoning quickly. Renown Chef Tom Mullally isn't too kind to tasteless food.
However, the chef is a charmer. He can warm the hearts and stomachs of people at the same time. His instructional skills are quite impressive and is a culinary asset to the Horry-Georgetown Technical College.
Below, you'll see some of videos, demonstrating his knowledge - and the fun he has while doing so. For if there's no fun, there's no point in doing it.
Check out the video below and see what's in store for you when you visit Bearded Butcher in the City of Georgetown.
New month, new dish to be chosen.
February's Simply Amazing Dish of the Month was chosen at Sol Cocina Mexicana. Two dishes battled, but one stood out more.
It was the Borrego en Mole Negro de Oaxaca. It's grilled marinated New Zealand lamb chops, sweet plantains, toasted sesame and oaxaca style black mole sauce, served with black beans.
Its competitor was the Puntas de Filete. That's a sauteed beef tenderloin tip, sweet plantains, fire roasted tomato chipotle quernado salsa with melted oaxaca cheese, served with black beans.
The cook on the lamb chops were medium and came out perfect. The flavors blended well with both dishes, but the lamb chops just had the taste profile a cut above the other dish.
Go and try the award winner and then order its challenger next time. You decide.
Congratulations to Chef Armando Cobian and his staff.
