Al and Executive Chef Casey Houghton (Lynyrd Skynrd BBQ & Beer), walks us through what it takes to make perfect baby back ribs, beef brisket, and sauces at home. (We only gained 3 pounds after this episode. We consider that a win.)
We continue our run of world-class chefs who left a high-profile job at a Strip property to open their own shop. For this episode of Top of the Food Chain, we sweeten things up with author and co-owner of Chocolate & Spice Bakery Megan Romano.
Our good friend (and unbelievably nice guy) Vic Vegas returns to Top of the Food Chain with a peek at what he’s been up to after having appeared on Food Network Star and Chopped All Stars.
You think Japanese food in Las Vegas is only sushi? Think again, as the city is going through what can be described as a Japanese food explosion. Al is joined by Martin Koleff, the stylist/consultant behind some of the towns hottest “alternative” Japanese restaurants.
Al is joined by Stephen Hopcraft (Executive Chef STK, Food Network’s Chef vs City) on this week’s Top of the Food Chain. Together they discuss the variety of steak highlighting differences from American Select to Japanese Wagyu. They also note flavor contrasts between grass fed and corn fed beef and wrap up by giving us executive chef secrets to cooking a great steak at home.
