MILFORD - A Milford family is getting messages from around the country after demonstrating their cooking skills on the popular Food Network series "Chopped."

Instead of the show's regular competition of individual chefs, Tuesday night's episode pitted just one family against itself. That family runs the Rainbow Gardens Restaurant in Milford.

The mother of the family came out on top.

Heather Profetto says it was a grueling 26 hours of shooting over two days.
