Despite the tricks, the teams were able to produced some gourmet food. The winning team from Station 8, led by Matt Gillies, served the chief sweet and sour wontons, sausage stuffed chicken with a twice baked potato and a cheesecake quesadilla for dessert. Station 5, led by Mike Berry, a former restaurant chef, served bacon wrapped dates, cornmeal crusted halibut with a butter/balsamic sauce and an eclair pie dessert. Station 8 donated its winnings to the University of Utah’s Burn Camp.
Firefighters and their families say they hope the show gets picked up by a network, because it’s got three things America loves — firefighters, food and giving to local charities.
