Chef Devin Davis is a guest on Fox 13 News sharing his excitement about upcoming casting on Food Network’s “Chopped.” The show challenges contestants to prepare culinary delights in three timed rounds that are 30 minutes or less. Each contestant is given a basket with four ingredients and asked to use them to create an appetizer, entree, or dessert. The show is known for unique combinations like marshmallow and fish.

In anticipation of the event, Devin’s mom gave him baskets of test scenarios to get him used to thinking on his feet and coming up with unique solutions to unusual ingredients.

In the interview he also shares tips on making the perfect pie crust. He used these techniques for his award winning Strawberry Blackberry Cream Cheese Pie.
