Tonight on Chef Wanted With Anne Burrell, Anne helps Fred DeAngelo and his wife Cheryl find a new executive chef for their restaurant, Ola. Ola is located on the north shore of Oahu at the Turtle Bay Resort. The four chefs competing for the job include: Crystal Zehetner, Sean Currid, Casey Barnes and Jared Combs.
Here is something pretty interesting from an article from the Honolulu Pulse. The show actually reached out to Fred DeAngelo, and offered to help find him an executive chef as they knew he was busy with running two restaurants. Perhaps they wanted to go on a trip to Hawaii?
At the end of the article, Fred says, “We really were looking for someone to be part of our family, and we’re really happy with our choice.”
So, it looks like the winning chef will probably end up working at the restaurant in this episode. I will update this post with the winning chef after the episode airs.
Chef Casey Barnes was the winning chef and 'recently got engaged to his girlfriend and is ready to move to Hawaii to start fresh with this new job.'
