Pensacola chef Edward Lordman to appear on Food Network show

Pensacola Chef Edward Lordman is bringing the heat on Food Network’s latest cooking competition, Beachside Brawl, premiering June 19 at 9 p.m.

The six-week series will recruit chefs from all around the country to settle the debate of which coast does summer food best: the East Coast versus the West. Each team of four will be given a renowned chef as a mentor and team captain: chef Tiffani Faison for the East Coast and chef Brooke Williamson representing the West Coast.

Beachside Brawl, hosted by chef Antonia Lofaso, will give chefs the opportunity to showcase their region’s signature dishes, according to a statement by Food Network. This could look like everything from West Coast fish tacos to East Coast lobster rolls, and everything in between.

Each episode will present a series of criteria challenges that each chef will be tasked to create a dish to meet.

“The menu must include an item on a stick, a fried item, as well as something in a bun, something cheesy, and something sweet,” Food Network wrote in a statement regarding the first episode’s challenge.

Each chef will hope the beach-inspired dishes they create will be enough for the judges to crown them “Best of the Beach” and award them with a beach getaway worth up to $25,000.
