Top Chef favorite Spike Mendelsohn at Pimlico today
If you're a Spike Mendelsohn fan, the former Top Chef contestant will be holding cooking demos in the Preakness Village today at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon. You might even get a sample of dishes like Classic Crab Cakes with Chile Garlic Mayonnaise. (Sounds good, but once you pair a crab cake with chile garlic mayonnaise you can't call it classic anymore.)
He'll be cooking with Kelsey Nixon, his Food2 co-host. (Food2 is the Food Network's new online channel.) ...
Mendelsohn owns the Good Stuff Eatery burger joint in DC, just visited by the First Lady. (Do the Obamas eat only burgers? Probably it only seems that way if you read this blog.)
The Mendelsohn burger must be a pretty good one. He swept the South Beach Food & Wine Festival's annual Burger Bash earlier this year.
