Watch Bear's Chef Natasha on Chopped
In case you haven't yet heard, I wanted to make sure you guys tune into some Astoria culinary goodness on the Food Network tomorrow. Astoria's very own, Chef Natasha Pogrebinsky from Bear will be featured on the popular Chopped program tomorrow at 10:00 p.m. I'm so excited to see Chef Natasha competing on the show for many reasons, one being that she's the only female competitor in the episode, the other being that she's really talented and also because she accurately represents the culinary prowess found in Astoria and LIC.
Chef Natasha will be competing with 4 other national acclaimed chefs, all with diverse backgrounds. For those of you familiar with the show, their given list of ingredients they have to cook with tomorrow include lemon bars, acai juice, upland cress and whelk snails. Have a go at that guys - can't wait to see what Chef Natasha comes up with.
If you'd like to get a little preview of what's to come tomorrow, take a look at this preview clip. Tune in tomorrow at 10:00 p.m. on The Food Network.
