Guy and Alton

Heads up! There is a guy coming to our very own San Diego. Not just any guy, but Guy Fieri of Food Network fame will be at the Fashion Valley Mall next Saturday, August 25th, for a "Super Chefs Live" event. I met Alton Brown a couple of years ago at this event. Expect some cooking demos, a signing, some samples and maybe a local chef or two.

Heads up part two! It's been on for a few weeks, my favorite food show right now is Feasting on Asphalt with Alton Brown. This is season 2 and they travel roads up along the Mississippi River. Last season was marred by a motorcycle mishap that left our very own Alton with a broken collarbone - none of that this year. Just, ahem, good eats all the way. Unlike the other travel foodie shows, this one seems like they just happen along various places without an advance team or notice - but I could be wrong. The show runs for a total of 6 episodes.

I'm back!


Not that I was on vacation, in jail, running from the law or even sick with the flu. Just too lazy to write and post. I've justbeen hitting up the old favorites: that Thai place, the Indian place on Activity Rd., the pizza place that starts with a Z and oh that other place too.

And I've been reading all the local foodie blogs - great job gals and guys!

Did have a weekend breakfast at Cavaillon - saw some bragging about it on our very own Chowhound - and it was excellent. They don't seem to get too busy but the patio filled up while we were there. Smoked Salmon Scramble Eggs with Scallions and Cream Cheese $10.00 Yum! Eggs Benedict with Bacon and Spinach $11.00 Start off with the fresh donut things. I swear the menu showed weekend brunch hours from 8 am to 2 pm, Sat. and Sun., but call and check to confirm as the website shows Sunday hours only.

I should have more posts coming up.

Don't laugh. It's possible.


New blogs
I've noticed a couple: longtime (I think) Chowhounder, Koko started a blog. And I think our very own "L" from Poway also started a blog. Lots of posts already on each including some restaurant visits - always my favorite part.
