Local Chef Chris Johnson Competes in National “Favorite Chef” Competition

Published on

Brevard and Palm Bay native Chris Johnson, the only contestant from our area, is vying for the title of “Favorite Chef” in a competition presented by Carla Hall. Chris, inspired by family traditions, showcases his culinary talent with a signature steak dish featuring mushrooms, peppers, caramelized onions, broccoli, and a loaded baked potato.

Who or what inspires you to cook?
My inspiration to cook stems back to when I was a child, continuously watching my aunt Evelyn and my cousin Phyllis who were always in the kitchen. I’d watch them create meals and never really look at a recipe because it seemed they knew the ingredients, and the right amount for everything. To witness that was truly amazing to me, especially when you’re young. I told myself, “I wanna to learn how to do that!” They taught me the basics and I just took off from thereā€¦ I do this for the

What’s your all time favorite dish to make?
Awe that’s a tough one! I don’t necessarily have an all time favorite dish. I wanted to have versatility cooking everything, because not everyone wants to eat the same thing. If I really had to choose, I would say a nice steak topped with mushrooms, peppers, caramelized onions with a side of broccoli and a loaded baked potato. You know, pretty simple!

What would you do with the $25,000?
Wow! Winning this competition would definitely be a dream come true. I would invest part of the money, give my son what he needs, take care of some important things in life and I would also use a portion to start my catering business because everyone has to eat!

Let’s support our local talent! Vote for Chris Johnson and help him achieve his dream.
