Childhood obesity summit livecast


Dominque Dawes, Carla Hall ("Top Chef All Stars"*) and Sam Kass, White House assistant chef and senior policy advisor for healthy food initiatives

Special unexpected guest star: Bob Ehrlich! 

Here's the link to the livestream, which starts Tuesday morning at 9 a.m.

The summit will spotlight the best practices and new solutions to combat childhood obesity. The discussion will be divided into three panel sessions focusing on the role of government, the health impacts of obesity on kids, and the role of schools and the community.

Speaking or Reality TV -- Anyone interested in guest-blogging recaps for America's Next Great Restaurant? I heard it's kind of entertaining.

One of my readers suggested that I recap America's Next Great Restaurant, but it's time-consuming enough to do one recap a week (Top Chef). Plus, while the show is entertaining, it's almost too serious to make for good recapping material.

I have it on good authority that one of my favorite people will be guest blogging recaps for America's Next Great Restaurant here starting Monday.

Let the ANGR begin. Personally, I think Fatty Fat's Sandwich Ranch was never given a chance around here. I liked the po boy with extra chuckle.

My entry for the show was returned with a letter asking me to never contact them again. I thought religion/dairy fusion was going to happen. But no, Maryland wasn't ready for What a Friend We Have in Cheeses™.
