DALLAS – Local DFW chef and owner of catering company Getting Saucy, Jennifer Bajsel, made an appearance on the Food Network television series “Beat Bobby Flay,” which debuted on Thursday, Nov. 12, a press release stated. Bajsel started as a home cook more than 15 years ago.
“Beat Bobby Flay” is a competitive cooking show where two chefs battle to create a dish using a special ingredient chosen by celebrity chef Bobby Flay. The winner of the first round competes with the chef himself in the second round, creating a signature dish that is unknown to Flay. A blind taste test is done by a panel of judges to determine the overall winner.
While making her appearance, Bajsel prepared a spicy fried chicken thigh with a chimichurri pesto and heirloom tomato relish. Despite not moving on to the second round, the show provided a great platform for the chef to showcase her talent, she stated in the release.
Bajsel began her professional cooking career in 2011, as she pursued her professional culinary degree at The International School of Culinary Arts at The Art Institute Dallas. One year into her culinary education, Bajsel began working under her mentor, well-known Dallas chef John Tesar, at his restaurant Spoon Bar & Kitchen. Other culinary positions include serving as the kitchen manager for Chino Chinatown, the lead culinary expert at Williams Sonoma, a kitchen assistant at Sur La Table, and holding an executive chef position at Foodie Couture.
Getting Saucy, Jennifer’s catering company, was created in 2014. Through her company, Bajsel develops individualized event menus, hosts private dinners and large events and instructs in-home cooking classes.
