Kickin' It Up A Notch.........
Yesterday, I had the distinct pleasure and opportunity to photograph a press conference and subsequent TV filming of a food tasting/critique and a cooking demonstration for an upcoming new Cooking Channel Series called Emeril's Florida.....yes, Chef Emeril Lagasse was in our area yesterday promoting his new series to be aired very soon (watch for it...)
Hosted by Deputy Director David Downing of the Visit St. Pete/Clearwater Area Tourism and Convention Bureau and the Director of Food & Beverage, Jonathan Pelletier of the Sandpearl Resort in Clearwater Beach, it was an outstanding morning. Chef Lagasse and Executive Chef Steve from the Sandpearl critiqued food prepared by Steve and his staff at the Sandpearl and then did a short cooking demonstration of one of Florida's prime fish, the Grouper.
I was ecstatic being able to both photograph and meet Chef Lagasse (I've been a fan of his cuisine and style for years). A most enjoyable and fun morning, thanks all ! BAM !!!!
