– Twisted Soul Chef Deborah VanTrece will appear on an upcoming episode of NBC’s “Food Fighters.”

The restaurateur will appear on the show Aug. 13 and 20. The show airs on NBC each Thursday.

According to a press release, “Twisted Soul’s Chef Deborah takes on not just one, but two contestants!”

Here is the full press release, from Twisted Soul:

OUR VERY OWN ATLANTA GIRL CHEF DEBORAH WILL BE BRINGING
HER SOULFUL TALENTS TO THE KITCHEN ON THE NBC SERIES
“FOOD FIGHTERS” AUGUST 13 AND AUGUST 20.

Food Fighters, on Thursdays at 8/7 central, is an incredible lineup of celebrity
chefs and the introduction of kids as contestants for the first time ever
spice up the second season of “Food Fighters,” the high-stakes culinary
game returning to NBC. Twisted Soul’s Chef Deborah takes on not just
one, but two contestants!

It’s the perfect recipe for the ultimate food battle when the best amateur
cooks in America put their signature dishes to the test against five professional
chefs, with the chance to win as much as $100,000. Television personality,
author and food enthusiast Adam Richman (“Man Finds Food,” “Fandemonium”)
hosts the series that takes culinary sparring to an exciting new level.
“Food Fighters” has only featured adult contestants competing against the
pro chefs… until now. This season, kid chefs are also added to the mix,
showing off their incredible culinary skills while racing against the clock to try
and beat some of the most formidable chefs in the country.

Armed only with recipes for their best signature dishes, kid contestants and
adult players will square off against an expert chef who will have to cook the
same dish but with no advance notice of what the dish will be. The completed
dishes will then be sampled in a blind taste test by culinary judges known
as “The Dinner Party.” After the two competing dishes are tested, the verdict
determining the winner is given to the host.

If the home cook wins, he or she earns a cash prize. Even if they don’t win,
home cooks still get to face off again against another culinary expert, climbing
a money ladder with increasing cash prizes for every professional chef they
knock out. Any amateur cook who wins each of the five rounds will walk away
with $100,000. It’s the ultimate food fight, pitting amateur cooks against
the most formidable culinary pros in America to see if they have what it
takes to beat the very best.

TWISTED SOUL WILL BE SHOWING FOOD FIGHTERS EVERY THURSDAY
FROM 8PM TO 9PM WITH $5.00 DRINK SPECIALS AND COMPLIMENTARY
HORS D’OEUVRES AT THE BAR.

Twisted Soul Kitchen + Bar is open for dinner Tuesday – Sunday.
Located at 314 East Howard Avenue, Decatur, GA 30030.

Fresh To Order in Decatur “now offers only USDA-Certified Prime steak in its sandwiches, salads and entrees.”

According to a press release from the company, “Grilled prime steak now features prominently in several dishes, including the Grilled Steak Panini and several entrees such as the Grilled Steak Long Plates. Guests can also top any one of Fresh To Order’s nine freshly made salad choices with it.”

The company says it “prepares its steaks with a simple infused–olive oil rub finished with fresh-cracked pepper and coarse salt to best complement the premium beef’s finer flavor and naturally tender texture.”
