Fryday By Lantern Light: 'Chopped' Chefs Come Together for Benevolent Fish Fry
Meat-free Fridays get some small screen glamour as local chefs who have starred on the Food Network show Chopped lend their cooking prowess to this week’s Lantern Light Ministry’s (1803 Gravier St.) Lenten fish fry. Chopped winner and owner of Irish House, Matt Murphy, is heading the fry for his second year with the help of a dozen other renowned chefs, some of whom you may also recognize from their appearances on the Food Network.
Chef Matt Murphy Wins 'Chopped'
Matt Murphy probably wished Fireman Mike made a return to the studio when his pan caught on fire. But the flames didn't stop him from bringing home the Chopped Championship. The Irish House chef, who undertook a training regimen the likes of which the Food Network show has never seen, is the third New Orleans winner of the show this summer. His path to the podium required managing a particularly tricky second round that saw carrot jam, rutabagas and grenadine syrup among the required ingredients. Then there was that most offensive canned pumpkin in the dessert round. The episode isn't on the Web yet, but Game Show Kingdom has some more highlights here.
Today in New Orleans: 7.31.12
Today, the Food Network turns the spotlight on a local, Paula Deen arrives to talk to medical types and more.

Irish House's Matt Murphy is Next New Orleans Chef on the 'Chopped' Block
by Mary-Devon Dupuy
After featuring a quartet of New Orleans chefs that included Miss Linda "The Ya-Ka-Mein Lady" Green in a late June episode and Fireman Mike around the 4th of July, the Food Network’s Chopped is going for the Crescent City trifecta on Tuesday. Local chef Matt Murphy is one of four competitors in the episode. The Irish House (1432 St. Charles Ave) will have a viewing party for the event, and Chef Matt is excited to celebrate the city’s positive publicity.
NOLA Food & Wine Experience Exposed!
NODEF Eats & Drinks, So You Don't Have To.
Earlier, in the week, I found myself at a local dive sipping some cocktails with chef, Tom Wolfe. I had run into Wolfe randomly, and I was delighted, yet nonplussed to find myself in a dimly lit bar trading notes on food with an expert. As the evening wound down, Wolfe remarked that he disliked the term “celebrity chef.” The comment and context summed up the essence of New Orleans’ legendary food world: quality without pretense, food that elevates the City not one chef or venue.
