Ted Allen Tonight at Nectar

tedallenweb.jpgA reminder to all you forgetful foodies out there: Tonight and tomorrow, Queer Eye For the Straight Guy and Iron Chef America alum Ted Allen will be at Nectar Lounge in  Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, signing copies of his latest cookbook, The Food You Want to Eat: 100 Smart, Simple Recipes.

The appearance is part of Sweet Dreams,

a series of celeb-chef appearances honeyed by the addition of an

unlimited spread of tasty desserts. Allen will be chatting with press

mostly at tonights 6 p.m. event. But Saturday at 6 p.m. he'll be

mingling with everyfolk too, shaking hands, kissing babies, and pumping

the crap out of his book.

Now, Allen isn't exactly a chef - he

grew to fame as a writer, actually. So there's a chance that his book

is not completely ghost written, like many other celebrity cookbooks.

Seriously, there are so many of these books doing terrible, terrible

things out there. They should be rounded up Fahrenheit 451 style and

used to do something possitive, like made into sustainable housing or

turned into celeb chef effigies and set on fire. I like the later

better. Anyway, what I'm saying is Allen's book could actually

be good. I'll ask him all about it and more tonight, and post what he

says next week. Now I just need to find something to wear.
