Randy Evans, formerly executive chef of now-closed Haven, is currently a consulting chef for JCI Grill, H.E.B.'s future restaurant on San Felipe and Fountainview, and more.
Tonight's episode is called "Milk and Cookies: Get Ready To Crumble" and is described on Food Network's website as follows:
"Transforming milk and cookies into a savory dish isn't the only obstacle standing between Executive Chef Randy Evans and his dream to own a restaurant."
The prize if Evans wins every round is $25,000. That's harder than it sounds: each round gets progressively more difficult.
Does this mean if he wins he can get a new restaurant of his own after this? That would be cool. Either way, we know this native Texan is no stranger to pressure and isn't likely to crumble. Evans had a long stint at Brennan's of Houston, eventually becoming executive chef there, before he went on to run Haven.
It's no coincidence the viewing party is at Lillo & Ella. Chef-owner Kevin Naderi worked with Evans for a time at Brennan's of Houston and went on to be his first sous chef at Haven.
The show airs at 9 p.m. Central Time. Lillo & Ella will serve free hor d'oeures during the show.
