Food is Teri’s love language, and her approach to getting people into the kitchen, rolling up their sleeves, and cooking is contagious. Teri’s recipes, most of which are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and Whole30 compliant, are what makes No Crumbs Left so unique. Simple and incredibly delicious dishes such as Pistachio Pesto Chicken Breast, Shrimp Pad Thai, and Spicy Pepperoncini Beef are on the dinner table quickly. Sounds great!

Viva Las Vegas 2019

Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen – Caesar’s Palace – Las Vegas, NV

With the announcement that future Hell’s Kitchen seasons will be shot on location at his restaurant and filming done at a sound-stage at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, I figured why not stop by the Vegas Strip location. Chef Gordon Ramsay was in and around the area as they are currently filming, so it was interesting to see the setup and how the staff were doing. The ambiance is top notch and they make you feel as though you are in the middle of the show without being cheesy or cheap. I was lucky enough to be seated right in front to get the feel of being in the kitchen and observe all the action going on. The service was impeccable from start to finish, and food was awesome. I had lobster risotto, pan seared scallops, Caesar salad, beef wellington, and an AMAZING sticky toffee pudding.

Chart House – Golden Nugget – Las Vegas, NV

Situated on the extremely eccentric and eclectic Fremont Street where anything you can imagine, you just might see in person, is Chart House inside the Golden Nugget. The setting of the restaurant is absolutely stunning with a 75,000 gallon aquarium surrounding the dining area. From start to finish I was impressed with the meal. The service was perfect and personable, and the food was delicious. I had the lobster bisque, calamari with fired veggies and a side of kimchi sauce that was to die for when added to the appetizer, grilled octopus, and a Chart House prime rib with a side of king crab legs and an order of sautéed mushrooms.

Sam Woo BBQ – Las Vegas, NV

Sam Woo BBQ is a favorite for Hong Kong-style Chinese foods in a casual, no-nonsense setting on the famous Spring Mountain Road in the Chinatown section of Las Vegas where you can get any Asian delight your heart desires. We were treated like family and service was friendly and efficient during our visit. I had the BBQ platter which was roasted duck, roasted pork, and bbq pork and also had their Mongolian Beef and shrimp fried rice. The duck was REALLY good and the both pork items were delicious as well. The Mongolian Beef was tasty. The shrimp fried rice was nice. Only thing I would ask for would be for larger shrimp my shrimp were too tiny and they could have been cooked a little more and seasoned better.

We are happy to happy welcome Elizabeth Minchilli who is the author of many books on the joys of Italian life. She has written for over 40 magazines, and today shares her passion for Italy through her blog, best-selling apps Eat Italy for iTunes and Android, and through her food tours in Italy. She will join us to talk about her newest book “The Italian Table: Creating festive meals for family and friends” from Rizzoli New York. The Italian Table delivers both parts of the fantasy and reality of Italian meals as they would be eaten on location. Combining menus and recipes with visual experience and inspiration–as well as insight into the traditions of the food and celebrations–it serves as a practical resource that gives home cooks and hosts step-by-step guidance on how to re-create these fabulous meals at their own tables.

Still thinking of Italy, we will have in studio Domenick Crimi the owner of Cappuccio’s Meats in the heart of the 9th Street Italian Market Philadelphia in South Philly Cappuccio’s Meats sells Old-World Style handmade sausages and is an artisanal butchery with cured meats, dry ages steaks, chops, and other cuts of the highest quality meats all butchered on premise and never processed at a third party location. Go and bring Old-World Style and Quality to your modern family’s dinner table.

With warm weather finally arriving, enjoying beverages outdoors is back again. We will have joining us Len Boris the Director of Beverages for Fearless Restaurants to talk about their summer cocktail menu. He oversees great dining destinations like Moshulu, White Dog Cafe, Daddy O Hotel Restaurant, Louie Louie, Tuckers Tavern, Plantation Restaurant and Bar, and Autograph Brasserie. With a passion for food and unique setting, Fearless Restaurants will inspire and delight you with an adventuresome dining experience.

Then trying to revive the East Coast – West Coast rivalry like the old days of rap between Diddy Bad Boy Records and Dr Dre Death Row Records we will have on Cassie Hepler of ExplorewithCassie a lifestyle and travel blog to discuss who is better when it comes to food and drinks. Who will come out on top, the East Coast or West Coast? Hopefully no one gets hurt with this new battle brewing in the culinary world.

Last but certainly not least, we are thrilled to be joined by Venus DeMarco who is an author, motivational speaker, and health coach. It has become her mission to make a positive difference in people’s lives, from the simplest circumstances to many of the most disturbing illnesses facing mankind. In this lifetime, her goal is to motivate people to take their “Health” into their own hands and not wait to change until after they become ill, but instead make wellness and health a priority!

Sakana Oriental – Woodbury, NJ

Sakana Oriental – Woodbury, NJ

A  repurposed Jersey Diner has a Chinese/Japanese restaurant sitting inside of it. It is slightly dated, but the personalized service was outstanding making me feel right at home even though it was my first time there. Not too many surprises on the menu, but they are reasonably priced especially for their lunch special which I ordered from, and the food was better than average. If in the area, I would go back for sure. Pictured is wonton soup and entree of pork with broccoli with pork fried rice.
