Events in PhoenixWe don’t want to brag, but it looks as if we have a celebrity in our mix! Our own Chef Tommy, creator of the wonders at Aioli Burger, will be featured on an upcoming episode of Chopped! One of the latest TV show cooking competitions, Chopped pits four chefs against each other in a contest where anything can happen. And because we are extra proud of Tommy and super confident that he is up to any challenge they throw at him, we are throwing one of the most exciting and fun events in Phoenix, a Chopped viewing party and we are inviting all our friends to join us!

What is Chopped?

With the advent of the Food Channel, cooking competitions could be considered a dime a dozen, but the Chopped show features an extra twist: Not only do the chefs have to prepare a special dish within the time limits, they must do so only using the ingredients the show provides! Chefs are presented with mystery baskets containing a variety of ingredients. In the past, these baskets have held collard greens, duck, and on one interesting occasion, gummi bears! You can see why only the best of the best can survive an episode, and why we are so proud that our own Chef Tommy was invited to participate!

Did He Win?

Do you really think we are going to tell you that? If you really want to know, show up at our doors on September 25th at 5:00 PM and watch with us; the show doesn’t air until 6:00 PM, but you want to be sure to get a good seat! This episode is all about tacos and tequila, and we’re pretty sure that Chef Tommy knows all there is to know about both, but you’ll only find out when you visit Aioli Gourmet Burger and hang out on the patio with all our friends and guests! Rumor has it that their might have been a meat grinder used and that there was a taco dessert round; we wonder if we could convince Chef Tommy to recreate his special dish for us here at Aioli? Maybe you can help us convince him when you join in the celebration at our Chopped viewing party!

Win or Lose

We all think Chef Tommy is the most creative and talented chef in the business, and we can’t wait to celebrate his celebrity status with all his friends at this ultra-special viewing party. Contact us if you have any questions and we hope to see you here on September 25th at 5:00 PM!
