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.
