A local chef will appear on The Food Network on Wednesday!

David Squillante of Dover, who works at Shipyard Brewpub in Eliot, can be seen competing on Cutthroat Kitchen August 10th at 9pm. The episode was filmed about six months ago and we'll soon learn how things turned out!


The reality cooking show hosted by Alton Brown has been a hit for Food Network since debuting in 2013. Contestants are given $25,000 at the start, which they can use at auctions during the show. The auctions are designed such that you can sabotage your fellow contestants. At the end of the episode, the winner gets to keep whatever remains of their funds.

Check out the SeacoastOnline's story to find out how David's grandmother convinced him to apply and what he thinks about Alton off the air.
