A French Toast to Team Eggheads of Another Broken Egg Cafe for winning the Competition Dining Durham Series.
Young, talented and a bit nervous about having to battle the seasoned veteran Curt Shelvey and his crew sums up the sentiment of Team Eggheads led by Chef Scott Schabot today.

That is until we hit them with the featured ingredients...Fresh from NC Waters Swordfish and Bertie County Blistered Peanuts. At that point instinct and a little blind faith took over. Team Curt's Cucina was ready and willing to school these young guns in the art of culinary war, but as fate would have it, the proverbial stone that took down the giant was in fact...a peanut!
