Uh… so apparently these guys were all on Top Chef Duels a few weeks ago!? How did we miss this?
Kudos to our pal Francis Lam on the spectacular photobomb.

Apparently Christina Milian is a fan of street meat. (Who knew?!)
From her Facebook page: “Bout to do some super big business with Chicken and Rice and make this company global! For all you foodies out there, like me, get ready! #foodporn #chickenandrice.”
Chicken and Rice, which launched in L.A. earlier this year, has plans to expand to Vegas (on the sidewalk in front of New York New York, natch), Orange County, and New York City.  
Your move, Famous Halal Guys. (May we suggest a partnership with Rhianna?)

We’re headed to Chicago for the weekend to podcast live on one of the smaller stages at Food Network in Concert at Ravinia. So to get us pumped up we’ve got…

CHEF ALEX GUARNASCHELLI

…on the podcast this week to talk music. (She’ll also be at the festival this weekend.)  You probably know Alex as a judge on Chopped, an Iron Chef, and the Executive Chef of Butter in NYC.  But did you also know she is huge fan of Priest and Maiden?  And that her mom, the famous cookbook editor, had a kick ass record collection? She also tells us about cooking for Prince (eat your heart out Marcus Samuelsson!), the time Nile Rodgers played at her restaurant The Darby, and the time she saw the Jerry Garcia Band at the Garden and left early to get a burger at Big Nick’s on the Upper West Side. And then, her 7 year old daughter plays drums at the end of the episode to close things out.

Download the podcast for free on iTunes or by putting our RSS FEED  into a player of your choice.  Or if you’re too lazy for all of that, you can stream the episode below…

Acts like the Ramones, Black Flag and Minor Threat believed in stripping a song down to its raw essence. Allergic to fussiness and intensely fixated on the purity of fresh fruit and vegetables, Mr. Headley aims to accomplish a similar feat with sweets. He prefers to use the ripe products of nature and get out of their way. Think of his roasted nectarine as an edible version of “I Wanna Be Sedated.”

This vinyl scene from Virgin Suicides is everything.

Just one of the things we talk to Alex Guaranaschelli about on this week’s podcast.
