Chef's contest makes one's mouth water

Chef Dave Shiplett of SOMA Diner swept the Judges Awards at Taste magazine’s first Chef’s Competition, winning best entree (Southern beef short rib) and best dessert (Chocolate coconut cupcake with vanilla ice cream).

The People’s Choice award was a tie between SOMA’s best entree and MartiniVille’s best entree (Beef short ribs nachos).

MartiniVille also won best dessert (Raspberry chocolate molten cake).

Besides Shiplett, the chefs were Mattison’s Greg Campbell, Ortygia’s Gaetano Cannata and MartiniVille’s Jim Moretti.
