It has been a big week for food-loving Central New Yorkers.
"Man vs. Food'' host Adam Richman packed Chevy Court at the New York State Fair Aug. 28, and his highly anticipated, three-stop Syracuse episode, featuring Mother's Cupboard, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que and Heid's, aired Wednesday on the Travel Channel.
In the 90-degree heat on Wednesday, celebrity chef Mario Batali set up a makeshift kitchen on the Chevy Court stage and prepared simple Italian food using grown-in-New York ingredients.
On Tuesday, meanwhile, I went back to the fair with my videographer-friend Joyce Gramza, and together we made the video you see here. It never would have occurred to me to do a "vlog," but Joyce wanted to make a video and try out her new Final Cut editing software -- and her enthusiasm is contagious.
So there you have it. Sit back and enjoy the show!
