Chef Brian Lewis Flays Competition

There’s always something going on at Wakeman Town Farm.

Last night, for example, Tim’s Kitchen was the site of an intimate chefs’ dinner.

Brian Lewis — chef/owner of the wildly popular Cottage and OKO — hosted the event, as part of a sold-out series.

What the guests didn’t know is that one of the dishes on the menu — English pea sachetti with robiola cheese, lemon brown butter and sage crumbs — was the same one Lewis had cooked when he taped “Beat Bobby Flay.”

Brian Lewis, cooking last night at Wakeman Town Farm …

And the episode aired that very night.

So as guests enjoyed their great meal, the rest of America was watching Chef Lewis go head to head with Bobby Flay.

Dessert included viewing the competition on TV.

The icing on the cake: Lewis won!

… and on TV.

“06880” is pleased to pass on this very tasty tidbit.

  4. The dinner at the farm last night was AMAZING and so much fun. Brian’s winning English Pea Sachetti is one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten – anywhere! No wonder he beat Bobby Flay with it. Brian Lewis totally rocks! Everyone had a wonderful time and he made the evening so very special.

    Chef Brian Lewis is impeccable, amazing, and extraordinarily in touch with his diners. At both the Cottage and Oko he and his knowledgable and informed staff offer not to be missed experiences.
