Iowa 80 Kitchen Chef Competes on Food Network Show “Chopped”
Jake Harbeck, chef at the Iowa 80 Kitchen, the full-service restaurant inside the World’s Largest Truckstop, is competing on the Food Network’s show Chopped:Truck Stop Stars. The episode will feature four talented truck stop chefs who bring their renowned take on comfort food to the Chopped Kitchen. In the first round, meatloaf mix is a pleasant surprise, but some are not very familiar with fennel. A purple veggie and a sweet drink are two of the mystery ingredients in the second round, and the finalists hope the dessert round will be easy as pie after they discover apple pie in the basket.
Jake Harbeck has been a chef at the Iowa 80 Kitchen for several years. His late mother also worked in the Iowa 80 Kitchen and is who inspired him to follow his passion for cooking.
The episode will air tonight (March 1, 2016) on the Food Network at 9:00 PM CDT.
