Top chef winners and the chef boyardees behind the best raviolas at home.
The list was compiled by James Cook, James Beard Foundation Australia’s founder and editor in chief, and chef boyaree Ravioli, the winner of a record-breaking 17 awards.Read more“A chef boyARDee, who has worked with some of Australia’s top chefs, including James Beard winner James Beard, and Jamie Oliver, has been selected as one of the top 25 to win a $1m prize for his raviolo at home in 2017.
The award for top ravioles is for a home-cooked recipe, with no additional cooking.
Mr Raviolo said he was thrilled to be chosen by the award-winning boyARDees and thanked them for sharing their inspiration for the recipes.
“I would like to thank all the judges, the editors, and everyone who has supported the boyARDeetees over the years, and I want to thank the people at the BoyARDeets for helping me with the process,” he said.
“This has been a wonderful experience and I’m very happy to be here.”
Mr Raviali, who grew up in Sydney’s inner west and has since moved to Melbourne, said he had been inspired by the way his family cooks their food and that his grandmother, who is a chef, was always telling him that it was best to start cooking when you were six or seven, and that he could cook a little later if he wanted to.
“You get a taste of it from the first bite of the pasta, you know?
So you’ve got to try it,” he explained.”
But I just try and make sure that I get a little bit of the first one out of the way so that I can really savour it.”‘
It’s been a pleasure to cook with the BoyARDS’In addition to winning awards for his work with chefs, Mr Raviola has been featured in the award winning cookbook, which includes the award for best cookbook.
Mr Cook said he hoped to continue to work with the boyARDS and encourage others to follow in his footsteps.
“Chef Boyardee is a fantastic ambassador for our society and a fantastic mentor for young people who want to get into cooking, because it’s such a fun career,” he told news.com.au.
“We want the boys to have the same opportunity as all the boys have and be given the opportunity to get involved in the culinary profession.”
The BoyARDees have worked closely with the Cook family and James Beard Award winner, James, since 2009 and are working on a series of cookbooks that will be released this year.
Mr Boyardees have also recently published an album of his favourite recipes and he recently won a gold medal in the cookbook awards for best cooking.
“It’s amazing that they’ve taken such great inspiration from our family and from James Beard’s work,” Mr Ravialo said.
“They’ve taken inspiration from us, so it’s great that they’re doing it for us.”
