Backstage at the Food Show 2011
What happens backstage at the Fabulous Food Show stays backstage at the Fabulous Food Show … until now!
Two lucky Metromix winners, who each got to bring a guest, had the chance to meet celebrity chefs Michael Symon and Robert Irvine on Saturday before their live cooking shows at the I-X Center.
One of the winners brought Chef Symon a jar of hot peppers from her hometown of Bellevue as a gift. The other winner came prepared with a list of questions for the Iron Chef himself.
The meet-and-greet portion with Irvine was pretty much anything goes. His face had been cut out of the poster in front of his trailer, so everyone had a good time posing with that. He actually raced our staff around the VIP area and challenged us all to a push up competition just before his show.
Both chefs were incredibly charming, taking time to get to know each winner, signing autographs and taking photos.
