Evan Hennessey, chef and owner of Stages at One Washington, located on Washington Street in Dover, is going to virtually share his experience of being on the Food Network show "Chopped" through the Dover Public Library on February 1 at 6:30 p.m. And you can be part of the virtual experience.

Here's the run-down, courtesy of Evan's Facebook page:

....... I’ll take on a 20 minute mystery basket with ingredients chosen by you, the viewers!  Aaaaand, if you’re feeling extra saucy, try a Chopped Challenge yourself!! There are Teen, Family, and Adult levels, and I’ll be judging the Adults!! Payback!!  Join me, and friends of the Dover Public Library for a fun filled evening you won’t want to miss!
Wait.  What?  I could be in a "Chopped "challenge right here in Dover?  Well, I might just try!  Sounds like fun to me!

I found an old article from about three years ago when Evan was on Season 37, Episode 2 of "Chopped" from Forbes Magazine that said the following:

If Evan Hennessy was cooking in Manhattan, it would be very hard to get a place (to sit.)

It's a crime that I haven't been to Stages yet. I am in Dover every day, so I should make time to head on over there. It's not always open, and with COVID-19, I'm sure that it's only gotten worse for them and for us. But you can still check out their menu. Pretty impressive stuff!

I found this video on YouTube.  You can cook like Evan, too!  (probably not, but you can try....)
