Jason Kelso (pictured fourth from right) was the winner of today’s “Best of Beck’s” Kitchen Pantry Cook-Off at La Cucina at the Reading Terminal Market! Kelso won a $500 gift certificate to the world famous Reading Terminal Market for his original dish Crevettes aux Anges Baisser (Angel Kissed Shrimp) over Dirty Rice.
Kelso was joined by three other contestants, selected by popular vote. They included Charles Peters (Angel Chicken and Devil Shrimp with Citrus Vinagrette), Donna McFarland (Cajun Reuben) and Peter Stines (Cajun Turkey Burger). Each had to create an original recipe using Beck’s spice rubs including Devil Dust fiery rub, Angel’s Kiss and Beck’s Creole Mayo.
The event raised money for MANNA, which provides nourishing meals for individuals suffering from life threatening diseases including HIV/AIDS, diabetes, and cancer.
