Chef Anthony Rametta, head chef at Scarlet’s Steaks and Seafood Room in Scarlet Pearl Casino, has advanced to the final round of Gaming & Destinations Magazine’s Sixth annual Casino Chef Showdown Recipe Competition.
The national competition features the top two vote earners from round two, and both finalists are Mississippi chefs. The other finalist is Chef Brian “Heath” Lanier from Fairbanks Steakhouse at Hollywood Casino in Tunica for his Crab Stuffed Soft Shell Crab with corn pudding, wilted spring greens and orange buerre blanc sauce.
Rametta’s entry is Pistachio-encrusted King Salmon, with roasted Yukon gold potato pearls, sautéed ramps, tomato sauce and basil oil. His fans can vote for him in the final round Thursday through Sunday.
“I’m humbled and honored to be representing the Mississippi Gulf Coast for the Gaming & Destination’s Casino Chef Showdown,” Rametta said. “What an experience it has been.”
During the final voting, his entrée is available for $40 in Scarlet’s Steaks and Seafood.
