Tuesday Newsday: Sno Balls, Celebrity Chefs, Moroccan Wines, and Furries


Top Chef combines two of my weaknesses: Food porn and bad reality TV. Throw in the occasional Eric Ripert cameo and you’ve got yourself one loyal viewer! This weekend, the trusty event staff at Los Angeles Magazine has organized a live TV chef cook-off at the Grove featuring two Top Chef alums: Betty Fraser (Yeah, I know, it’s been a while, but she’s so darn sweet —and have you tried the tuna melt at Grub?) and our own Season 7 pea-puree thief, Alex Reznik of Café Wa’s. (Yeah, I know, he’s weird.) 

Come watch these two battle it out—with food—at the Grove this Saturday from 6-8 p.m. along with cooking demonstrations and tastings from Grove locals the Whisper Lounge, the Farm of Beverly Hills, Morel’s French Steakhouse & Bistro, and the Cheesecake Factory. The best part? It’s free!
