Trader Joe’s Favorites Are The Theme Of Foodbeast’s Next LIVE Cooking Battle

We’ve all got our favorite items at Trader Joe’s, whether it be the legendary Orange Chicken, the hype new Knafeh released this year, or even some holiday Jingle Jangle. Some of those favorites are about to be stretched to their creative limits in an upcoming intense cooking battle.

On this week’s upcoming matchup of the Foodbeast Kitchen League, two of Twitch’s top chefs will be squaring off in a Trader Joe’s Battle. Returning champion CookingForNoobs, who unseated chef Josh Elkin last time around, is going up against newcomer Jae_Benny, a Twitch chef and gamer with a serious lineup of unique recipes up her sleeve.

For those unfamiliar with the Kitchen League, in each matchup, the audience has the ability to sabotage the chefs live by taking away knives, eyesight, or other things they need to cook their dish. They also have a key voice in the vote, grading each chef on their dish’s visual appeal as well as the chef’s swagger throughout the match.

The two chefs are making recipes that are based either on their favorite Trader Joe’s items, or using their Trader Joe’s items. What that will actually entail remains to be seen, but it should make for an intense and tasty matchup.

CookingForNoobs and Jae_Benny will square off on Foodbeast’s Twitch channel, live at 11 AM PST on Thursday, December 12th.

Two Of Instagram’s Hottest Chefs Are Duking It Out In A Fried Chicken Battle

Two of the most viral foods you can find on the internet these days are a 20 pound ramen challenge and a “Magical Burger” that is decorated with colorful marshmallows and sprinkles. The culinary masterminds behind these two dishes are squaring off for the first time in one of the more unique cooking battle formats out there.

On September 26th, chef Michael Pham of Shomi Noods and Hotties Fried Chicken will take on chef Fernando Valladeras of Groundhouse Burger and Fowl Play OC in the Foodbeast Kitchen League. The two will pit their fried chicken recipes against each other, competing to see whose poultry is prime.

In the Foodbeast Kitchen League, chefs each have 45 minutes to compete against each other, and the entire battle is streamed live on Twitch. While the battle is going, viewers directly interact with the chefs via sabotages. Various amounts of Twitch bit donations can take away valuable assets like knives, hands, and even sight for a short period of time.

Twitch viewers will also heavily influence which of the two chefs wins the battle, as they get to vote on the chefs’ visual presentation and swagger throughout the course of the stream.

To tune into the stream, you can check out the Foodbeast Twitch channel at 11 am PST on the 26th.
