For the first time Chowdafest will be hosting cooking demos, and thanks to OmNomCT we know the lineup.
You may have read about Stamford’s Hunter Zampa in Culture Cache, or you may have seen him on Food Network back in December. At 13, Hunter won Food Network’s special teen edition of “Chopped.” Now, he has his own cooking demo at Chowdafest – OmNomCT says he will be cooking Spinach Potato Leek Dip.
Hunter on Food Network:
Pietro Scotti of DaPietro’s in Westport will also be making a soup.
Chef Forrest Pasternack, the Executive Chef of Bailey’s Backyard in Ridgefield will be creating a dish using local ingredients.
The last chef in the lienup is Chef Plum. “Chef Plum, 35, a Culinary Institute of America graduate, is a personal chef and caterer….he has created culinary delights for Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, Michael Jordan and Sheryl Crow, among others.” – News-Times
