Local Chef Appearing on an Upcoming Episode of ‘Chopped’

Catch the episode on April 4.

“Chopped.” Yep, the April 4 “Fry of the Beholder” episode. Hacienda revealed the news on social media.

Hacienda isn’t typically open on Tuesdays but it’ll be open on the 4th for a viewing party (5-9 p.m.) and offer the full menu of dishes Turner, a native Texan, created.  That includes everything from smoked wings and BBQ nacho bites to a green chile burger and cherrywood smoked salmon taco plate.

As for Turner’s Chopped debut, Hacienda posted this comment from their chef: “Let’s just say I made a tasty ‘every person’ type meal that we’ll sample during the viewing party.”

Guests at the viewing party can also enter a raffle to win prizes like a private multiple course meal for up to 10 people. The proceeds will benefit a culinary camp for kids through the American Culinary Federation.
