Grueneberg vs Shepherd

On May 10, Top Chef Texas finalist and Spiaggia executive chef Sarah Grueneberg cooked with her mentor, Chef Chris Shepherd of Houston's Underbelly, for the first time in almost a decade. The duo paired up at an event promoting the Houston culinary scene and competed against one another in Top Chef-inspired quickfire challenges for the guests.

They have amazing chemistry and joked with each other and told stories about their time together at Brennan's--and bragged on Houston's ethnic food a lot--while they were cooking. Sarah specially said that the best Vietnamese food she's ever had is in Houston. (Les Givral's on Milam)

This video was shown prior to the challenge to tell the backstory leading up to this remarkable evening of culinary wit and prowess.
