LIZ GUTMAN - "The Liddabit Sweets Candy Cookbook"

Get ready for a candy revolution! Now, instead of commercial, processed chocolate bars; neon, sugary lollipops; or other boring candies that are ubiquitous at Halloween, indulge in artisanal confections that will take you to new heights of deliciousness. Think creamy-dense chocolate truffles, juicy fruit jellies, crackly nut brittles, and the French-style sea salt caramels that Daniel Boulud claimed were better than those he'd tasted in France. They're all here in THE LIDDABIT SWEETS CANDY COOKBOOK: How to Make Truly Scrumptious Candy in Your Own Kitchen (Workman / October 2012) and, yes, you really can make them in your own kitchen. Authors Liz Gutman and Jen King are the classically trained pastry chefs who traded in their toques to make candy—and now lead the candy-craft movement as proprietors of Liddabit Sweets, a Brooklyn confectionery. Their irresistible creations have drawn the attention of The Today Show, O, The Oprah Magazine, Real Simple, Food & Wine, GQ, New York magazine, and more. Geared toward home cooks, THE LIDDABIT SWEETS CANDY COOKBOOK is the perfect marriage of sugar and spice, packed with 75 foolproof recipes, full-color photographs, and a dash of attitude. Liz and Jen begin with Candy 101, a chapter dedicated to basic ingredients, techniques, and the equipment (minimal—really!) you'll need to get started. A handy, at-a-glance-guide helps you find the perfect recipe in seconds, whether you are looking for something nut-free, fruity, quick and easy, or a candy that ships well for a special gift.


NYESHA ARRINGTON - EXECUTIVE CHEF  

From the time she was a child pretending to run a restaurant, Nyesha Arrington,  Wilshire ’s Executive Chef, has loved to cook. Arrington was born in southern California to a multi-cultural family. When she was just four years old, her Korean grandmother influenced Nyesha’s youthful palate by introducing her to diverse foods such as bulgogi, octopus and kimchi. That culinary experience has shaped Arrington’s cooking technique ever since, inspiring her to integrate different flavors of cuisine from around the world and creating her individual and personal style.  A graduate of the Culinary School at the Art Institute of Los Angeles in 2001, Nyesha worked with her mentor, Josiah Citrin at Lemon Moon in Culver City and Mélisse in Santa Monica.  Her resume also includes work with legendary French chef Joël Robuchon at his Michelin and Mobil award-winning Las Vegas restaurants, L’Atelier and The Mansion. With both master chefs, she feels fortunate to have been guided by extremely talented cooks, who taught her a wide range of important skills in a highly competitive and very professional environment. Arrington, an ardent believer in using fresh, seasonal products, considers several important factors in creating her menu, including the weather, what’s in season, and the availability of locally-grown food.  Nyesha comes from an artistic family; both her father and sister are musicians, and before pursuing a culinary career she aspired to be a sculptor. Her creative upbringing is reflected in Nyesha’s approach to cooking, which she considers an art. “Every plate is  Like a canvas,” says Nyesha. “Chefs must be able to do everything, from thinking about their prep, to assessing the menu and knowing their audience. I love the process. Nyesha was named a Rising Star by Brad Johnson of Angeleno in 2010.  She has been featured in Restaurant Hospitality, on StarChefs.com and was a guest chef at the popular Test Kitchen restaurant in 2011.  In 2011, Nyesha appeared simultaneously on two reality cooking shows as a contestant: Bravo’s Top Chef: Texas and Food Network’s new series, Chef Hunter, where she won the competition for the next executive chef at Wilshire.  In 2012, Nyesha was recognized by Zagat.com as one of the 30 Under 30 – LA’s Hottest Up-And-Comers as well as Where LA’s top talent under 30. She was also profiled in the LA Weekly’s People issue as one of the most 69 interesting people to watch in 2012. She has also appeared on KTLA and Good Food on KCRW She is an enthusiastic supporter of the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market and sustainable farming as well as numerous community organizations, including Taste of the Nation for Share Our Strength; California Spirit for the American Cancer Society; Plate by Plate for Project by Project and the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Cooking for Solutions, Good Food Festival Santa Monica. When she’s not creating culinary masterpieces, Nyesha delights in spending time outdoors with her dog, Samson. She is an avid surfer and snowboarder, enjoys camping and continues to love art. However, her greatest passion will always be cooking.

BARB DETERMAN - National Pork Producers Council

Food Day (Wednesday, October 24th) raised national concerns about animal welfare, particularly on the life of young pigs and how they are treated on the farm. For example, a misleading film with an animated piglet was used to target children and raise undue concern among consumers about pork production and how food is really grown and raised. Unfortunately, the animated film didn’t include the point-of-view of a real farmer. Instead, the film used emotion and children’s entertainment to manipulate the American public, without providing an accurate account of farming.  The truth is that farmers and ranchers of all sizes are committed to the humane treatment of their animals. Farmers and ranchers take animal welfare seriously. Caring for animals, in cooperation with veterinarians, is paramount to a safe and healthy food supply. Farmers and ranchers use a variety of animal husbandry practices, housing strategies and healthcare to decrease disease risk and promote animal health. Additionally, farmers and ranchers recognize consumers’ concerns regarding animal care and understand there is no one perfect system. Improvements on farms across the nation continue as farmers and ranchers look for solutions that work best for them and the animals they raise. The bottom line is that today’s farm animals live healthier lives than ever before.

BEN VAUGHN  "HEALTH INSPECTORS"

"Rats in the Cellar" Salud restaurant in Chicago specializes in high-end Mexican food and specialty tequila cocktails, but behind the festive exterior are many health code violations.   After friends of the owner came down with food poisoning, she called Ben Vaughn for help.

Raised in Florida, Ben Vaughn started cooking in his grandmother's kitchen before attending the Ft. Lauderdale Art Institute where he learned from some of the country's finest chefs. After graduation, Vaughn moved on to become partner and chef at River Oaks restaurants and then own two critically acclaimed restaurants, Grace and Au Fond Farmtable, located in Memphis, Tenn. Vaughn's transition from chef to consultant was triggered by his passion for teaching others and his desire to pass along the valuable lessons he learned throughout his restaurant career. Vaughn lives in Atlanta, Ga. where he now dedicates his career to helping food establishments and is the culinary director and executive chef for Brewed to Serve Restaurant Group and White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails.

LISA TILLINGER JOHANSEN - "FAST FOOD VINDICATION"             

LISA TILLINGER JOHANSEN spent seven years  as a real estate manager for McDonald’s Corporation before enrolling at  California State University Los Angeles and earning a Master’s Degree in  Nutritional Science. Now a Registered Dietitian at Kaiser Permanente, Johansen  teaches nutrition classes and counsels patients on a wide range of health  issues. She lives in Southern California. For years, dozens of books, documentaries, and magazine articles have  targeted the fast food industry as the cause for many of society’s ills, ranging  from the obesity epidemic to the proliferation of dead-end jobs. Now, hospital  dietitian Lisa Johansen makes the bold case that the fast food industry is  actually a positive force in society. Johansen takes the reader from the  industry’s scrappy, entrepreneurial beginnings to its emergence as a global  business generating hundreds of billions of dollars annually. Far from a blight  on society, the fast food industry has distinguished itself by providing a  product that meets high standards of quality and safety, often healthier than  meals served at home and in sit-down restaurants. The myth of the “McJob” is  debunked by true-life cases of corporate titans who succeeded by virtue of the  fast-food chains’ practice of promoting from within.

MASTERCHEF BECKY REAMS

My favorite thing to cook is anything that is regional, local, and in season. I know that sounds like a catch-all term, but it's true. California has so much to offer, and the bounty of fresh produce, meats and seafood is outstanding. I also try to cook regionally, because I think that is something that is missing in a lot of today's American cooking. People have forgotten what kinds of food they grew up with, and what kinds of food make us unique to the area we live. My philosophy on cooking is to draw from my life experiences, and the type of food I grew up with in Stilwell, KS, and to use that as the basis for how I cook. I look to reinterpret those dishes and modernize them in a way that makes them new for people again. Specifically by using the wonderful products here in Los Angeles, like the seafood, the produce from the farmer’s market, and all the wonderful sustainably-raised meats. Award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, restaurateur Joe Bastianich and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot return for Season Three of the culinary smash hit MASTERCHEF. Nearly 30,000 hopefuls auditioned at MASTERCHEF's open casting calls. MASTERCHEF also hit the road for the first-ever food truck casting tour. Only the best amateur cooks were flown to Los Angeles for a chance to compete for the coveted title of MASTERCHEF and the $250,000 grand prize. This season will feature contestants from all walks of life representing 23 states, all with the hopes of turning their culinary dream into a reality.

 CHEF RICHARD BLAIS - WINNER BRAVO'S TOP CHEF ALL STARS


Perhaps most recognizable as the winner of Bravo’s Top Chef All-Stars, Richard Blais has played an influential role in hospitality for the last 15 years. He began his career as the “poissonier” at McDonald’s. His developing passion for food and the service industry led Blais to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. He spent time between semesters studying at the French Laundry in Yountville, CA under renowned chef Thomas Keller and alongside then rising stars Grant Achatz and Eric Ziebold. Upon graduating from the CIA in 1998, Blais ventured to New York for the opportunity to work with Chef Daniel Boulud at his famous flagship, Restaurant Daniel. He followed his professional compass to Roses, Spain and completed a brief stage at El Bulli with culinary wizard Ferran Adria. In 2000, Blais relocated to Atlanta to oversee a local seafood concept. His wildly creative approach to cooking and cuisine later led to the establishment of TrailBlais, a forward-thinking culinary company that has consulted on, designed, and operated some of Atlanta’s most popular eateries, including multiple outposts of Flip Burger Boutique and HD-1. He recently opened The Spence, a new restaurant concept in Midtown Atlanta, and his debut cookbook, Try This at Home: Recipes from My Head to Your Plate, will be published by Clarkson Potter in February 2013. Blais has appeared on TODAY Show, Good Morning America, LIVE! with Kelly, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, as well as in numerous publications including The New York Times, InStyle, and Food & Wine magazine.

KLARA BERGMAN & PRESIDENT TRUXTON'S BISTRO 

Truxton’s American Bistro has introduced a new type of dining experience  serving a wide variety of classic and ethnic American dishes with a twist, at  everyday prices. Our experience is for people who love food and a great place to  enjoy it. The first Truxton’s American Bistro location opened in Westchester in 2006,  and has been built into the area’s premier casual full service restaurant,  providing social and corporate catering services throughout Los Angeles. Our Founders, John Kaufman and Tim Foley, set out to develop the premier  casual full service restaurant celebrating American cuisine, while defining what  is an American Bistro – similar to how PF Chang’s defined the Chinese Bistro.  Their vision came to reality thanks to successes in previous  executive/management positions with California Pizza Kitchen, Houston’s, Koo Koo  Roo, Rosti, and more, plus a collection of family recipes and great space ready  for loving development on Truxton Avenue, near LAX Airport. John and Tim attribute a great deal of our success to Truxton’s experienced  management team: Executive Chef Greg Schroeppel, Kitchen Manager and Chef  Gerardo Zavala, our General Manager Shevaun Fritzius, and our catering  management team led by Kristina Miramon and Teri Kinne. This passion for an  American Bistro cuisine experience has fueled expansion plans which are  underway.
