George Mendes on Top Chef Masters
Portuguese Celebrity Chef; George Mendes of Aldea restaurant in NYC was recently voted off as a contestant on Bravo Top Chef Master’s Season 3 bravotv.com/top-chef-masters. The judges didn’t care for his Pork & Clam skewers which they felt, although it was quite tasty, it didn’t adapt to the fast food theme of the challenge. Carne Alentejana on a skewer! What could be better than that?
My favorite episode was the Cheese Quick Fire challenge, when George talked about the stinky cheese that his parents would bring back in their suitcases on return trips from Portugal. I think we can all relate!
It was sad to see him leave, but I know bigger and better ventures are coming for him. Good Luck George! Visit the websites below to learn more about this rising star! I’ve also included his quite humble exit interview…
