Meet Ocean County Chef Britt Rescigno. Britt grew up in New Gretna and now resides in Southern Ocean County in Tuckerton. Britt is down to the final 8 in Food Network's Tournament of Champions. NJ.com did a feature this week on Chef Britt and her rise to fame on the Food Network. "Currently in its fourth season, “Tournament of Champions” features winners of previous Food Network shows facing off in a March Madness-esque competition, with the chefs competing head-to-head to advance in the bracket. Rescigno, 33, won “Guy’s Grocery Games” on Feb. 15 to secure her spot in the field."
According to the NJ.com article "Rescigno previously held a three-year residency at Beach Haven’s Delaware Avenue Oyster House. She is currently in residency at Kōbo, a Japanese-inspired Detroit-style pizzeria in Seattle with fellow “Tournament of Champions” competitor Shota Nakajima." So from Ocean County to Seattle to the Food Network Chef Britt is on a roll, no pun intended, and we are rooting for her to go all the way with Guy Fieri on Food Network's Tournament of Champions.
We will keep you posted on Chef Britt's quest for winning the tournament.
