Hey everyone... we're making history on stage at SXSW by demonstrating and then launching a cookbook - live on stage and we need your help!  I've asked +Chef Dennis Littley  if it was cool to post cause we need your help (and good taste).    

If you're not familiar with that conference, it's a tech/music conference attended by more than 72K people every year. The cookbook we're creating is a crowdsourced cookbook made by the food community on our platform (what we're demonstrating on stage). In the audience will be hundreds of media checking out the cookbook and seeing who added a recipe to it. 

This is where you come in... want to share a recipe?  We're looking for any type of recipe.  You can add a photo with your blog name on the pic, a description of the recipe with your blog URL in the backstory and video (simply copy the link from youtube). To add a recipe go here:

Our presentation is here:   Once the panel is over.. I'll post a link here with the live cookbook - sometime this weekend. 

Thanks for your help!  I am on my way to Austin at the moment... so if you don't hear from me for a while.. I'm at the airport! :) And we know how that goes...

If you love the #foodnetwork  and Celebrity #chefs  - you don't want to miss this live chat with NYT's Reporter & Author +Allen Salkin -- join us live on Thursday! 
Love the Food Network? Join #KitchenParty  this Thursday w/ Hosts +Babette Pepaj ( and +Rene Lynch (LA Times) as we welcome special guest +Allen Salkin, NYT's Reporter and Author of "From Scratch: Inside the Food Network" ... behind-the-scenes look at the history and the personalities that have made The Food Network what it is today. 

Join our live chat about our favorite TV chefs, their big personalities, the high drama and extraordinary behind-the-scenes stories of our favorite food network personalities. 

America has come a long way from the handful of “dump and stir” cooking shows of the 1970s and 80s to the vast and vibrant television food scene of today, when most of the population seems to be on a first-name basis with the likes of Bobby (Flay), Ina (Garten, the Barefoot Contessa) and Mario (Batali). Situated at the sweet spot where business, media, and food meet, From Scratch is author Allen Salkin’s highly entertaining, eye-opening look at a major pop culture phenomenon. We're delighted to have him join us on KitchenParty! 

Date & Time: Thursday, Feb 27 at 8pm ET / 5pm PT

The next cooking show won't be about cooking/food at all, from the direction I noticed the network going a few months ago. I've since cut cable. #kitchenparty  If they bring more dessert shows back, I'll come back.

I have been going to this Poquito Mas for over 5 years - sometimes three times a week. I love the food that much. We also have brought our dog to the patio for the past two years. But that came to an end today - we were the only guests on the patio and we were told our dog needed to be outside the patio walls. Keep in mind, we go to this place specifically because we can bring our dog. Today was 100 degrees in the Valley and there was no way I was going to leash my 12 lbs CHI out in the sun. Now, what's frustrating is that there is a new law in LA County making it ok to have your dog on the patio... So dog owners... AVOID THIS PLACE if you think it would be nice to sit outside in the OPEN patio and bring your dog. After 5 years of this being my "go to" place... it's sad that I have to leave this review. I am hoping the one on sunset will still let me.
