On December 6th, join the Fair Game food truck and other hungry fans as we watch Chef/Owner Jean Paul Peluffo compete on Food Network’s “Guy’s Grocery Games” for a chance to win $20,000. Chef Jean Paul competed against three talented chef’s and came out victorious so we want to celebrate with some food, drinks and a private viewing of the show which will be displayed right on the Fair Game food truck.

Free samples of food which were featured on the show will be provided along with a full food menu available for purchase. Feel free to bring your own beverages and enjoy the open-air seating at Tested.LA.

At the age of five, Chef Jean-Paul Peluffo was given the opportunity to help make pastries in his father’s restaurant in Nice, France, and the rest was history. Being a chef is not only in his blood, as his father and grandfather were esteemed chefs themselves, but also Peluffo’s passion. He completed his culinary training in Nice and has worked in restaurants around the world form Guinea to Mexico to the Ivory Coast. In 2000, he was requested to be the Executive Chef for the G8 Summit in Genoa, Italy. He was tasked to design, oversee and prepare the meals for George W. Bush, Jacques Chirac, Tony Blair, Vladimir Putin, Silvio Berlusconi, and other heads of state from around the world.
