Harrah's Chef Deb Pellegrino wins 'Chocolate Myths' Food Network Challenge

Harrah's Chef Deb Pellegrino wins 'Chocolate Myths' Food Network Challenge

Pastry Chef at Harrah’s Resort and Showboat in Atlantic City, Deb Pellegrino took away the chocolatier’s crown and $10,000 on last Sunday’s popular TV series Food Network Challenge. The challenge for four outstanding pastry chefs from the U.S. and Canada was to create a mythical creature out of chocolate and then have that creature come to life – in eight hours.

Chef Pellegrino, gleaning from her past culinary experience as head crew chef aboard a private yacht for three years, chose to make The Kraken Adventure. What is that – a kraken? In mythical lore, and believed to have been reality as well, kraken (in German means octopus) are legendary sea monsters of gargantuan size thought to dwell primarily in the northern seas around the Scandinavian countries.

Kraken, resembling an enormous octopus, was a sea monster that many early sailors and fisherman reported sightings of all the way back to the 1200s. It was a terrifying creature that would sometimes attack ships. The myth of the Kraken grew for centuries, much like its cousin the sea serpent. Kraken were said to be the size of a small island (as long as 50 feet from head to the tips of its many tentacles), often even being mistaken for islands themselves. When kraken submerged to the depths of the sea, its enormous whirlpool would take ships and crew down with it.
