BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com’s staff has its roots in Philadelphia — a place known for Cheesesteaks (as well as a few other things, like the Constitution and the Liberty Bell, but let’s stay focused). So we wish Boca Raton Firefighter Alex Callegari well as he flies to Philly to compete in the “Steak-umm®” Firehouse Challenge Cook-Off.
We know, we know. Steak-umms® are not real cheesesteaks — but sometimes you’ve gotta go with what’s easily accessible.
From Firefighters of Boca Raton Local 1560:
This Sunday, Boca Raton Firefighter Alex Callegari, will fly to Philadelphia to compete in the Steak-umm® Firehouse Challenge Cook-Off. Alex is one of three finalists that could win 20,000 dollars for first place. The Cook-off will be airing on the Steve Harvey show in September. Alex said he is competing in honor of former firefighter and Chef John Wilson and will donate any prize money to a scholarship fund in his name. Alex will be preparing his Boca Steak-umm® Sliders and three celebrity chef judges will decide if he has the best recipe.
