Dueling Rouxs

Food Network Star winners Justin Warner and Demaris Phillips challenged each other on stage at the Grand Tasting Tent. Justin wanted Demaris to "Southern-ify" a New York favorite: bagels and lox. She gave him a Southern favorite — chicken fried steak — to reinvent. Both her dish — a savory, salmon-flecked scone take on biscuits and gravy — and his chicken fried skate with kale Caesar salad allowed the chefs to show off their roux-making skills.
