This weekend, you'll be able to see some of the top grill masters out there. No stranger to the Fabulous Food Show, Bobby Flay returns to break out some of his favorite grilling recipes. Flay hosts the widely-popular Throwdown with Bobby Flay, Boy Meets Grill, Brunch @ Bobby’s, Bobby Flay’s Barbeque Addition, and Emmy-award winning Grill It! with Bobby Flay.  

Emeril Lagasse, host of Emeril’s Table on the Hallmark Channel and Cooking Channel’s Fresh Food Fast, The Originals with Emeril, and Emeril Live, makes his Spring Fabulous Food Show debut on Sunday, April 29th in the Backyard Patio Theatre. A TV cooking veteran, Lagasse’s unbeatable passion for cooking and teaching will surely inspire any backyard warrior to turn up the heat! 

Steven Raichlen joins the celebrity chef lineup, sharing some of his best practices and insight into the world of barbeque. Raichlen has written a multitude of cookbooks for grilling aficionados and hosts his own “Barbeque University” in Colorado Springs.

And last but not least, grilling expert Jamie Purviance represents Weber Grills and will share his expertise in the Weber Grilling Pavilion, an outdoor feature of the show. Purviance has authored many Weber grilling cookbooks and will host live demonstrations on grilling, barbeque, and smoking techniques.

There will also be a Celebrity Book Signing Pavilion in case you want to get those cookbooks signed and Tasting Gardens hosted by the American Wine School. More than 300 wines, spirits and specialty beers will be available to sip, swirl, and savor and seminars in the Cadillac Tasting Theatre will help you select the perfect beverage for outdoor gatherings.

In keeping with the summer theme, there will be an Ice Cream Shoppe where you can indulge in all your favorite summer frozen treats from gelato to fro yo.

I'm really glad to that they will have a expanded Farmer's Market and a Farmer's Market Stage where they will show you how to make the most of the season's bounty.
