Chef Alcorta “featured San Antonio” on renowned cooking show


Another local chef represented San Antonio this week on the Food Network.

Chef Margeaux Alcorta, Director of Culinary Operations at Jason Dady Restaurant Group, appeared on “Chopped”, the James Beard award-winning Food Network show. The episode “Time Capsule”, which aired Tuesday, challenged Alcorta and her fellow competitors to create appetizers, main courses and desserts using ingredients that were popular in the 1960s, such as grapefruit soda and the pan of wieneroni.

That kind of versatility is part of Alcorta’s daily skills in her role in Jason Dady’s restaurants. Dady told MySA that Alcorta oversees “all aspects” of its five restaurants and catering business.

“From recipe testing to management mentoring, private events and catering, Chef Margeaux oversees all kitchen operations,” he said.

Dady said online that Alcorta had withdrawn from the hustle and bustle of a viewing party, but he shared the news on Facebook and continued the praise in his statement to MySA.

“We are so proud of Margeaux for the way she presented San Antonio and told her beautiful story about her daughter, her love of cooking and showing the Nation Food Network that she is one of the best chefs in our industry. “, did he declare. “She shook him up, kept her cool and made us all so proud”

Alcorta’s appearance comes days after Hotel Havana’s Chef Kirk, real name Jesse Kuykendall, won the show’s top prize of $ 10,000. Chef Jonathan Beatty, of Atlanta, won Tuesday’s episode that Alcorta took part in.
