On Friday, October 1st ... I have been invited to be the "celebrity-guest" for the Atlanta Braves "Big Night Out"! This is an icredible VIP evening which you can actually go and purchase tickets for yourself! -- Right now. :-) Here's what I am so excited about .... the "Big Night Out" includes:
1. Luxury Suite game Tickets
2. Free Parking
3. A private cooking demonstration by the Atlanta Braves Senior Executive Chef, Orazio LaManna (and Me!)
4. Gourmet Dinner
5. Open Bar all night
6. Lots of fun goodies!!
This is a special one night a month event that Chef LaManna created and October is the last one to be held for this entire year. I am honored to be the "FINALE" guest for 2010. This is going to be so much fun!!
Our theme is "Sexy Southern Cuisine" and I get to create lobster macaroni and cheese ... but here's the twist .... we're killing the lobsters right there in front of you, and thus using the freshest meat you can find. It is going to be beyond delicious, and I'm salivating just thinking about it already! (not so excited about killing the lobsters in front of an audience)
Also, Chef informed me we will be 'playing' with liquid nitrogen! Even more fun!!! It is a growing popular technique for cooking dessert foods especially like ice cream - milkshakes - popcorn balls - etc.... But it's dangerous! - It's not like every morning you wake up and think to yourself, "Hmmmm, I think I'm in the mood for some liquid nitrogen today". I've seen it on TV -- shows like Top Chef and even Next Food Network Star ... and I know Richard Blais here in Atlanta serves liquid nitrogen milkshakes from his restaurant in Midtown called FLIP ..... but I've still never seen it done in person before. Much less get to play in it all by myself!
As I write this blog, there are only 10 tickets left to sell. After that, the private cooking suite is over capacity and tickets will no longer be available. It's $125.00 per person and just click on the link below to order.
Buen Provecho and can't wait to see you lucky 10 on October 1st!!
Fireworks Extravaganze to follow!!! Finally!!
(pictures will definitely be coming)
