While Chef Scott Beale's infectious enthusiasm was clearly evident from the get-go, his gusto only amplified as the proceedings unfolded. A modest posse in tow, Scott took to the aisles of El Rancho Market like a man on a mission, methodically dispatching his accomplices to price-check mayo and procure armfuls of baguettes, yet never going long between jokes about the availability of hair-care products on the Inca Trail, or devising innovative methods of kicking things up a notch. This zeal didn't flag once the grills were fired up, and all that was needed to see Scott's eyes light up was to pose a question about those curiously flexible nonstick baking molds he employed. In fact, without those perpetually slick surfaces, Scott would likely not have even been present at the proceedings, as it was his development of this technology that led him from a career as a marine biologist, preventing zebra mussels from sticking to underwater pipelines, to his current calling as a chef, keeping filets from sticking to the grill. We'd like to take this moment to thank zebra mussels everywhere for their part in allowing this remarkable man to join us at the cookoff. And, of course, thank you Scott.
