On November 23, Jared Gaither challenged Brandon McKinney and Edgar Jones to a cookoff at the ESPN Zone in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The players worked with a chef to prepare their meals.
The dishes were judged on presentation and overall taste by a panel of local celebrities, as fans watched. In the end, McKinney’s Cajun jerk chicken with coconut rice beat out Gaither’s steak and pasta dish and Jones’ seafood pasta.
McKinney’s dish will be available all football season long on the ESPN Zone’s dinner menu.
