Vegas Uncork'd: Cooking Showdowns, Cocktails, Gossip

Here we are at day 2 of the Bon Appetit Uncork'd event in Las Vegas, a rolicking weekend of some seriously good food, lots of celeb chefs, and loads and loads of gossip. This here is the Masters vs. Rookies Culinary Pro-Am outside of Caesars, which takes place today and tomorrow. We made it to the second showdown: Our buddy Todd English and actress Lorraine Bracco vs. Hard Rock Hotel chef John Church and Amaeteur Gourmet blogger/author Adam Roberts. It's a mini Iron Chef, with celebrity hosts (for a tiny woman, that Cat Cora is a raucous one) and guest judges (Alan Richman, BA's Barbara Fairchild and Andrew Knowlton, Food Network's Bruce Seidel) secret ingredients, timed cooking, the works. Let's just say this, hearing that you'll be eating these four ingredients together---foie gras, pineapple, rabbit and cactus---is terrifying. Unless, of course, you're Todd English. We'll have the full story and more this weekend and Monday.
