The Big Event: Me vs. Lorraine Bracco, Caesar’s Palace, Friday 5/9

May 7, 2008 | By | COMMENTS


This is probably the strangest news I’ve ever reported on this blog; but, it is with great pleasure (and disbelief) that I tell you, my readers, that this Friday, at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, as part of the Bon Appetit Uncorked Festival, I will be going head-to-head with Lorraine Bracco in the Masters vs. Rookies Culinary Pro-Am on the DCS Stage. Specifically, I will be paired with master chef John Church while Ms. Bracco will be paired with master chef Todd English and then we will do battle. The ticket information is here, but I am inquiring about getting some of you who left comments on my Vegas post in for free to root me on. Either way, this is going to be an exciting day in the life of an amateur food blogger. Could my life get any stranger? Wish me luck!

By the way, we leave tomorrow for Vegas; thanks to all of you for your tips on where to eat. I’ll be liveblogging the trip from my hotel room, so stay tuned for updates the rest of this week.

    Yikes, I am trying to eat lunch here and I visit the blog and BANG, talk about excessive post-menopausal mammalian exposure – I am at work here too kids. I wonder what she could have POSSIBLY been thinking with this shot.

    Much luck to you – do what ever you can to focus on the cooking and not being nervous. It should be loads of fun!

    Lorraine Bracco is too cute for her age, I love it! She makes me feel better about getting older.

    Good luck and I have one of Todd’s Cookbooks, it’s a great book.
