Chicken and the Egg Chef Marc Taft Competes in Vidalia Onion Festival Golden Onion Competition

Marc Taft, chef/owner of the Marietta restaurant named Chicken and the Egg, is peeling down the highway to cook up a dish centered on trout and onions. Taft is one of 10 Georgia chefs competing in the Golden Onion cooking competition and showcase for our state’s official vegetable taking place during the Vidalia Onion Festival, running April 24-27 in Vidalia, Ga. He’s vying for the honor of acquiring the Golden Onion trophy for a year and a cash prize of $500, $250 or $100. Taft’s dish balances the sweet onion flavor found only in Vidalia onions by dressing up pan-seared Enchanted Springs Georgia Mountain trout with baby Vidalia, sweet potato, Brussels sprout and apple hash, Vidalia onion soubise, pickled Vidalia buds and Riverview Farms ham hock reduction. The event is free and open to the public at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 27.
