City Grocery Group Pastry Chef Dwayne Ingraham Wins the Food Network’s Cutthroat Kitchen

City Grocery Group Pastry Chef Dwayne Ingraham of Oxford, Mississippi has won the February 8, 2015 episode Food Network’s television show, Cutthroat Kitchen.

Chef Dwayne was featured in issue number 221 of The Local Voice, both on the cover, and in an article by TLV Editor Nature Humphries.

Last night, Chef Dwayne not only competed against some other pastry chefs on the Food Network, but his television show episode also competed against the The GrammysIMG_4136-692

Ingraham competed formidably – and won – against some stiff competition on this episode of Cutthroat Kitchen.

That’s no easy task, as Food Network superstar host Alton Brown was there, ready to throw his monkey wrench into every round.

Brown entered the competition with $100,000 cash and gave equal parts to the four competitors to use against each other in bidding rounds.

Chocolate” was the theme of this Food Network episode, and Alton Brown made sure it was not easy  to coast to victory.

Competitors had to bid against obstacles, including mixing a lava cake in a champagne glass, or mixing in cellophane wrapping, or cutting food with the wrapping from a chocolate bar.

With $25,000 cash, Chef Dwayne bid his way to culinary victory, by outwitting three other pastry chefs. At one point, he was forced to pare Halibut fish with chocolate… but he made it work. 


As of the publishing of this blog, the Food Network doesn’t have information on their website available about any of the other Chefs who competed on Sunday’s episode.

Chef Dwayne Ingraham outwitted three opponents through three different rounds on Sunday, February 8, 2015, and he emerged victorious at the end of the night.

Congratulations to City Grocery Group Chef Dwayne Ingraham!
