This month I participated in the following panel discussion on food and media. We discussed various topics on food with Marcel Vigneron, Martha Foose, Chad Galiano (of Chadzilla fame), and Jeff Potter. Not sure how I ended up with such brilliant personalities, but I’ve enjoyed the opportunity.
Taste and Presentation: The Digital Dish
Saturday, April 14, 11:30AM–1PM, Enzian
Ticket Price: $10, Sponsored by Edible Orlando
This mid-day event is packed with flavor and intrigue as culinary authorities speak about the ways modern media has shaped today’s food culture. Consider that, in 1993, Food Network was founded and largely considered nothing more than an upstart cable station aimed at offering recipes to home cooks across the US. Now—19 years later—the food television industry is worth over $1 billion and over 10,000 active food blogs are churning in English alone. Join us as the experts, ranging from cookbook authors to TV stars—speak to their exciting careers in the food and media worlds, while we all savor some tasty treats prepared by the Enzian kitchen. Culinary guests include Top Chef Season Two runner-up and star of the Syfy cable network’s Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen Marcel Vigneron, two-time cookbook author and award winning southern maven of deliciousness Martha Foose, and blogger/author and culinary artisan Gui Alinat.
