Chef Adam Hayes, formerly of Red Stag Grill in Asheville, wins Food Network’s ‘Cutthroat Kitchen’


Loyal reader Anne-Marie passes along this tidbit. Congratulations to Chef Adam Hayes, the winner of a recent episode of Food Network’s Cutthroat Kitchen. The reality TV cooking show is hosted by celebrity Chef Alton Brown. Chef Hayes is the former chef at the Red Stag Grill at the Grand Bohemian Hotel in Biltmore Village. He moved to Georgia earlier this year to take over as top chef at Barnsley Resort.

Here’s a little background from Atlanta Restaurant Scene:

Airing Sundays at 10 p.m., Cutthroat Kitchen, the unlikely Food Network hit hosted by Alton Brown, is a wild and crazy mix of high-dollar bidding, dirty tricks, and evil sabotages that the chefs must navigate to create winning dishes.

This Sunday, the newest episode features chef Adam Hayes of Barnsley Resort. Earlier this week, Hayes called to say he couldn’t say much of anything about the show, except it was a whole lot of fun to shoot.

“There’s a 25 page confidentiality agreement about the shoot,” Hayes said. “I skimmed through it and signed so I’m not really going to be able to say a whole lot. But people should watch it because it’s gonna be hysterical. The show wasn’t exactly at the top of my list of things to watch. I got a new respect for it after doing it, though.
