We're big fans of Tyler Florence and caught up with him recently at the LA Food & Wine Festival, where he talked about his approach to dealing with the critics, his love for YumSugar, and his plans to open more locations of his successful restaurant Rotisserie & Wine. Oh, and a possible Wayfare Tavern fried chicken truck, too? Learn all about it when you watch the video.
What's Food Network's Guy Fieri been up to lately? We found out this week when we spent a minute with him at the LA Food & Wine Festival. He took some time to talk about the guests (among them: Coolio and Joey Fatone) who'll be on his new competition show with Rachael Ray, his favorite barbecue style (guess what part of the country it's from!), and the best part of being host of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
Wolfgang Puck was one of the hosts at this year's LA Food & Wine Festival, and we stopped him on the red carpet to ask him a few questions. He had plenty to say about the menu and ambiance of his new restaurant at the Hotel Bel-Air, favorite variations on his famous smoked salmon pizza, and what you should do if you don't like to cook.
