The new king of Queens can not only cook — he’s generous with his winnings, too.
Jing Kong beat the field of firefighters and paramedics at the borough’s round of the Daily News 5 Alarm Cookoff, held Saturday in Long Island City.
Kong competed as a lieutenant in the FDNY’s Ceremonial Unit in Bayside — a squad that handles everything from bugling to serving as pallbearers at department members’ funerals. He’s donating his winnings — a trip for four to Florida and gift cards from P.C. Richard & Son and Key Food — to the John G. Chipura Foundation, which has raised money to help firefighters dealing with illnesses stemming from the 9/11 attacks.
The Staten Island-based charity owes the gifts to Kong’s plate of braised pork belly and unagi donburi (Japanese for eel bowl.)
