Award-winning chef brings national awareness to PKD by competing on Food Network's Guy's Grocery Games and Chopped All-StarsMichael Psilakis

On Sept. 13, Michael competed and was victorious in a cooking challenge on Food Network's Guy's Grocery Games to win cash for his charity of choice, the PKD Foundation.

On the All-Stars in the Aisles episode, host Guy Fieri sent Michael and three other talented chefs running through the grocery store aisles in a high-stakes, high-skills, grocery store cooking competition. Chefs made an upscale dinner using frozen and canned foods; prepared brunch in a multi grocery store cart swap game; and created a dish using one ingredient in two different ways.

This was Michael's second attempt to earn some serious dough and raise awareness for the PKD Foundation. In May he participated in the Food Network's Chopped All-Stars and was runner up in the competition.
