Hollywood grilling chef makes TV debut
August 7, 2012 by Sarah
On Sunday night, at 9:00 pm EST, Robyn Medlin Lindars of Hollywood, Florida, was on the Food Network’s show ‘Chopped: Grill Masters’ to compete with four other chefs for a grand prize of $50,000. Locally, it would be no surprise if poster printing and flyer printing had been used to get those in the community to show their support and encourage her efforts on the show.
According to Lindars, the show provided each chef with a set of very strange ingredients and then asked them to make a dish from it within a set period of time. She had been asked to be on the show before but was unsure of appearing on television until she finally decided the time was right to make her appearance.
Lindars certainly has the culinary credentials for being on such a show. She has her own blog called Grill Grrrl and has previously blogged for Kingsford charcoal and a grilling site for Sear’s. She has cooked on the air with Ty Pennington and been on a team with her father in a grilling competition, held in Memphis in May, for the championship of barbequing. She says that grilling, and food in general, is very much a part of her family and puts her love of food down to hailing from the South.
Lindars started her grilling collection with one gas grill. This started her obsession with grilling, which she considers something that people can do all year round. This grill was followed by a charcoal one, then smoking, and her collection is now up to nine grills.
