LARRY MANETTI – ACTOR, AUTHOR & RADIO HOST 


Larry Manetti started acting in his hometown of Chicago. After studying acting with the Ted List Theater Players, Larry drove to Los Angeles in 1972. Larry landed an agent and was sent to Universal Studios to audition for an opening as a contract player. Luck was on his side. Jack Webb was casting a new series for NBC called The Chase. Larry played a young detective. After attending acting school at Sal Dano's at night and doing bit parts by day, he scored. Baa Baa Black Sheep was being produced and cast at Universal, and the now famous writer Stephen J. Cannell was the executive producer and the role was a natural for Larry. He was cast as a cocky, hot shot pilot named Bobby Boyle. The show was a big hit for NBC but was cancelled within two years. Because the network was so impressed with Larry's on-screen presence, they cast him in a new series called The Duke. Bad luck! The Duke was cancelled in one year. Larry was back to playing whatever Universal told him to. Hoping to catch lighting in a jar, along came Magnum, P.I. and the role of Rick. This was his elevator...the show became a mega-hit for 8 years. Since Magnum, P.I., Larry has done co-starring roles in 25 feature films and guest starred on many hot TV shows. Larry is the author of a book titled Aloha Magnum.

CHEF EVAN BROCKMAN - NATIONAL PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY DAY

Culinary background - My cooking career began back in 2003 flipping burgers at a friend’s bar and grill in Omaha, NE.  After a few years working in different restaurants in Omaha, I enrolled in the culinary program at Johnson & Wales University in Denver, CO in 2006.  After two years of early morning culinary lab classes paired with late nights working the line at a popular Denver restaurant, I received my Associates degree in Culinary Arts in May of 2008.  I returned to Omaha in September of 2008, and began an internship with ConAgra Foods’ Culinary Innovation group in December of 2008.

Over the past 5 plus years with ConAgra, I have worked on a multitude of different projects and brands with my main focus being on frozen food development.  Through the years I have worked extensively on Banquet, Healthy Choice, Marie Callender’s; and most recently on our newest frozen brands Bertolli and P.F. Chang’s.
