We want to say congratulations to Darnell for his big win on the Food Network’s Ultimate Thanksgiving Challenge, which netted him a $25,000 prize. The three episode mini-series challenged contestants to think outside the box about Thanksgiving dishes.

He posted on November 19 about his win to his Facebook page saying, “Humbled and hungry is the best recipe for life. I was glad I represented my God and my city in the best way possible!!!!!!! Come by restaurant tomorrow from 9-11 for free breakfast appetizers and to celebrate!!!”

Of interest, Darnell has also recently taken on providing the food side of Nirvana Music Venue at 1047 Bardstown Rd. while continuing to run SuperChefs at 0174 Bardstown Rd.

Also, as we reported last week, you can meet Chef Ferguson and enjoy a delicious dinner and class for two with him and Chef Rodney White at Cooking at Millie’s, 340 W Chestnut St, on December 5th. The class will feature mini crab cakes w/ garlic aioli and mango chutney; pineapple boats w/ onion, peppers, chicken and shrimp; and smoked PB&J oatmeal w/ blueberry compote. Dinner for two starts at $120 and includes a bottle of wine per couple.
