Michael Symon, Iron Chef on the Food Network and co-host of ABC’s The Chew, will appear this September at the Market District store in Robinson Township to host a cooking demonstration and present fresh home meal solutions from his new cookbook "5 in 5."
Symon will appear at 11 a.m. Sept. 8 at the Robinson Market District and at 3 p.m. at the Bethel Park Market District.
Symon’s appearances are free to the public, but tickets are limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Advance ticket registration is available online at marketdistrict.com
"5 in 5" will be released on Sept. 3. The cookbook demonstrates how fabulous meals can be prepared using no more than five ingredients and some pantry staples, all of which cook in five minutes and cost less than $5 a serving.
This is Symon’s second cookbook and is a follow-up to "Michael Symon’s Live to Cook: Recipes and Techniques to Rock Your Kitchen."
Symon cooks with soul, creating boldly flavored, deeply satisfying dishes at his four restaurants in America’s heartland: Lola, Lolita, Roast, and B Spot. He also shares his exuberant, approachable cooking style and infectious laugh with viewers as an Iron Chef on the Food Network.
Since being named a Best New Chef by Food & Wine magazine in 1998, Symon and his restaurants have been awarded numerous honors. In 2010, he was the first chef ever to host the annual Farm Aid benefit concert, and B Spot’s Fat Doug burger won the People’s Choice Award at the SoBe Wine & Food Festival. In 2009, Symon earned The James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef Great Lakes and the Detroit Free Press named Roast “Restaurant of the Year.”
In 2010, Symon appeared on four Food Network/Cooking Channel shows, hosting Food Feuds and Cook Like an Iron Chef, judging season three of The Next Iron Chef in 2008, earning him a permanent spot on the panel of esteemed Iron Chefs.
When he’s not working, Symon is riding his motorcycle through Cleveland, cooking at home, playing golf, gardening in the backyard, and spending time with his wife, Liz, their bullmastiff, Ruby, and an Old English bulldog, Ozzy.
