Keiser University Student Wins Big On Guy’s Grocery Games

Keiser University 2021 graduate Jada Vidal recently won big on popular Food Network television show Guy’s Grocery Games in the “Sneak Attack” episode. After showcasing her talents and winning on the show, Vidal walked away with $20,000 in prize money.

While attending Keiser University, Vidal studied in the Center for Culinary Arts program, where she was able to hone her skills and pick up a job at a restaurant named Haven formerly known as SideBern’s. The Keiser University program allows students a hands-on degree approach where they can work along experienced chef instructors to study fundamental culinary theories and get practical training in industry-current teaching kitchens.

Guy’s Grocery Games premiered on Food Network in 2013 and has since become one of the network’s most popular shows for aspiring chefs. The show is hosted by chef Guy Fieri and features four chefs from around the country who compete in a three-round elimination contest. The chefs cook with ingredients found in the show’s supermarket grocery store, named “Flavortown Market,” and compete in often unusual challenges given by Fieri.

Vidal’s winning dishes were Korean fried chicken and filet mignon with polenta and mushrooms.
