Show 140, October 3, 2015: Show Preview with Executive Producer & Co-Host Andy Harris

Special 3:00 p.m. start for today’s “SoCal Restaurant Show.” We follow Angel Baseball (versus the Texas Rangers) as they continue to battle for the 2nd Wild Card Berth. Amazing come-from-behind victory. Go Halos!

We’re back to our regular broadcast time of 10:00 a.m. to 12 Noon on October 10th.

Congrats to all the winners (and nominees) of The Golden Foodie Awards held Sunday, Sept. 28th at The Fairmont Newport Beach. We’ll be talking to some of the winners today and in the coming weeks. Food Network’s Simon Majumdar was the host and a great addition to the festivities!

Timothy HollingsworthIt’s a B-I-G show this afternoon so we want to get right to our first guest, Executive Chef Timothy Hollingsworth, a James Beard Award recipient. Chef Tim was previously the chef de cuisine of Thomas Keller’s fabled French Laundry in Yountville. Since relocating to Southern California he has opened Barrel & Ashes in Studio City. On the immediate horizon is the debut of the eagerly anticipated Otium restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles prominently located across the plaza from The Broad.

Chef Tim is one of the high profile local chefs of distinction cooking at The Taste Los Angeles Dining Event, “A Night of Culinary Stars,” benefiting the James Beard Foundation on Friday evening, November 6th at The Ebell of Los Angeles.

All of this and lots more absolutely incredible deliciousness on Saturday’s show!
