Celebrity Chef Justin Warner, the winner of the eighth season of the show Food Network Star, is being shown around town this week by local chefs. A Food Network crew is in tow, filming several segments. The theme for the segments is pork.
Here’s a Tuesday announcement by Ultimate Ice Cream here in Asheville:
Hello sweet ice cream friends. Great news! The Food Network is coming to Ultimate on the east side tonight, 1070 Tunnel Road. They are filming a new show for the network with the theme of pork. So, they are traveling to Asheville on this chilly rainy day just to taste our Brown Sugar Bacon and Maple ice cream. Arrival will be 5:30 or 6:00. Come join us and get a chance to be on national television. The show host is Justin, he just won the Next Food Network Star competition. Lets show these lovely folks our local Asheville love. Come one come all, hope to see you.
The Asheville Scene’s Mackensy Lunsford blogs that chefs involved with the Blind Pig Supper Club are showing Warner around. Another segment of the filming “will include the making of Pisgah Brewing Company’s next batch of exclusive Snout stout, a beer brewed with Alan Benton’s world-famous bacon,” Lunsford reports.
