Rich Landau, owner and chef of vegan hot spot Vedge is competing on Chopped on The Food Network on June 18. For those not in the know, the show pits four chefs in head-to-head competition with baskets full of mystery ingredients. After each course, the judges "chop" one contestant who didn't do well, and after dessert, a winner is crowned.
Landau is going up against chefs Sonya Cote and David Garrido from Texas and Mustapha Rahiim from NYC. The secret ingredients on the show include: chia seeds, dandelion greens, and, luckily for Landau, tempeh. Set your DVR to record on June 18 and be ready to cheer on our hometown hero.
