NASHOTAH - Chef Michael Bressler from The Red Circle Inn & Bistro in Nashotah was recently named the Chef Par Excellence at the 2018 Wisconsin Pork Association Taste of Elegance Competition.

This year marked the 30th anniversary of the annual competition that encourages chefs to create innovative and inspiring pork recipes.

Bressler's winning entree was called "The Three Little Pig Plates" and included pork ribeye, pancetta wrapped pork loin and pork belly. This entree earned Bressler a $750 cash prize and an expense-paid trip to the 2018 Pork Summit, which is an educational event hosted by the National Pork Board that brings together state or regional Taste of Elegance winners from across the country.

The Red Circle Inn and Bistro will be featuring this competition-winning entree, as well as its regular menu, at the restaurant on the evening of Feb. 22.
