WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — The 2014 Fire on the Dock winner Antoine Murray of Cape Fear Country Club talks about what it is like to prepare a meal for 150 people with a surprise ingredient.

The annual competition held at Bluewater Waterfront Grill in Wrightsville Beach pitted talented chefs from all over Southeastern North Carolina over several nights of competition.

It was Chef Murray’s third attempt at winning the competition and he won this year with a secret ingredient of NC Certified Angus Beef and Joe Van Gogh coffee.

In true nail biter fashion, the final contest all came down to the desert where Chef Murray pulled it out with a dish of Cappuccino Cheesecake and Ethiopian Creme Patisserie.

He says his victory all comes down to being prepared and lots of practice.

Chef Murray now goes onto compete on the state level in November.
