Kristina Fuller, the chef behind downtown Greensboro’s immensely popular Crafted taco joint, was featured as a competing chef on “Cutthroat Kitchen.”
Season 3 Episode 9, “Life’s a Mystery… Meat,” of the Food Network show included Fuller and three other chefs.
In the episode, Fuller is “sabotaged” and given ham during a sloppy Joe competition.
As a first-time viewer of the show, it was complicated to follow the twists thrown into the cooking competition, but still gratifying to see one of the Triad’s popular chefs appearing on a nationally-televised Food Network show.
A critic on the show who sampled each contestant’s dish took issue with Fuller calling her creation (left) a taco, as he contended it was more like a flatbread with pork on it. Still, he complimented the flavors, including the sweet sauce on a salty pork product.
“That’s what works for me,” he said, “but you know the issue is, the composition could’ve been a little better. ”
