It was a great night of food and laughs and in the end, one NJ101.5 personality was crowned as "best chef" in the NJ101.5 cook-off.

The evening opened with a sold-out-audience sampling some amazing foods from local NJ restaurants and businesses and once the crowd got it's fill, then it was time to get down to business.

The cook off was fast and furious with both Big Joe Henry and Dennis Malloy cooking up a storm, yet still finding a way to entertain the crowd. The jokes went back and forth between the two as they explained their dishes to the audience.

Dennis and Big Joe wowed the judges with their dishes but ultimately in the end, there could be only one champion. In a very tight vote, Big Joe Henry was voted as the first-ever NJ101.5 cook-off!

After the "big man" was announced as champ, the two NJ101.5 personalities hugged as friends after a long, hard-fought but fun battle.
