Local Alvin chef selected for Food Network show

Posted on Monday, 15 July 2013

One of Alvin’s own will soon be appearing on The Food Network Channel. Garrett Eagleton (now known as Chef Garrett) and son of Alvin resident Becky Mullin, will appear in a “Chopped” segment, which will be featured in the Houston area sometime near the beginning of August. “I believe it will be shown as Episode #3 in Season 17,” Eagleton said.

He is a 2000 graduate of Alvin High School. In 2005, he graduated with honors from the Art Institute of Houston (Culinary).

“I first became interested in cooking when I was about 19 or 20. I loved to go to Froberg’s Vegetable Farm to buy fresh vegetables.

"I took those ingredients home and began testing different recipes using that produce. I love Froberg’s,” he admitted.

After graduation from culinary school, he landed a job in Portland, Oregon where he worked for five years. From there, he moved to Manhattan and began working as a chef at the Beagle.

He now impresses customers with his delicious creations at the Maiden Lane in Manhatten. I hope to spend a few more years in Manhattan…and then who knows where I will go?” he said. He is best known for his fresh seafood dishes, particularly his raw seafood concoctions.

“Chopped” pits four contestants through three rounds of cooking. At the end of each round, the three judges grade each contestant’s dish. For the competition, each contestant is provided with a basket full of ingredients. From there, the chefs must decide what to prepare using just those ingredients,” he explained.

He admits to being very nervous during the first round, but managed to calm down by the second round.
Three judges preside over the competition.

“Our judges included Chef Geoffrey Zakarian, Alexandra Guarnaschelli and Marcus Samuelson, all internationally known chefs,” Eagleton continued.

At the conclusion of the three rounds, a winner is selected. The winner received $10,000. Eagleton, however, cannot comment prior to the viewing about who won the cook-off.
