Minnesota Moment: Chefs flex creativity for a good cause at 'Cooking Up Hope'

Updated: February 20, 2020 10:25 PM

Teams pieced together meals from random ingredients Thursday for a good cause.

The Cooking Up Hope competition at the American Cancer Society's Hope Lodge in Minneapolis is a take on "Chopped," the popular cooking game show in which chefs battle to make the best dishes while incorporating a random assortment of mystery ingredients.

Teams raised money ahead of the competition to benefit the Hope Lodge, a place where people who are fighting cancer can stay for free.

Perhaps the strangest ingredient combination of the competition came during the main course: shrimp, grapefruit and granola.

Local Cancer Society Chair Jeff Mader says there are more events planned for the fall. The hope is to get more winners together and hold a grand championship with help from local restaurants.
