As Del City’s chef Joshua Valentine continues his quest for “Top Chef” dominance, another Oklahoma-based chef will make a national television appearance.

Tabb Singleton, who is currently executive sous chef at Emeril Lagasse’s NOLA Restaurant in New Orleans and a 1997 graduate of Idabel High School, will compete on Food Network’s wildly successful “Chopped”  on Tuesday at 9 p.m. Singleton is a self-taught chef who worked in Tulsa before landing a job at Abendigo’s in Broken Bow. Singleton finished second in the 2006 Oswalt Culinary Cook-Off, which is held at the annual Oklahoma Restaurant Association’s annual convention. He stayed at Abendigo’s long enough to mentor chef Tim Gardener, who won the competition in 2010.

“Chopped” is hosted by food writer Ted Allen, of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” fame. On the show three expert judges sit down to a three-course meal prepared by four chef contestants. Course by course, the chefs are chopped from the competition until only one winner remains. The twist is in the ingredients.  Chefs are handed a mystery basket before each course and given only a few seconds to conceive a composed dish.

So, next week’s food-based television viewing is covered for Tuesday and Wednesday. Best of luck to both Tabb and JV.
