The giant festival party tent was transformed once again last evening for "The Best Thing I Ever Ate", where celebs and celebrity chefs don't actually cook themselves, but present a dish from a favorite restaurant. It's a fun way for these celebs to kick back with a glass of wine and meet their fans.
Celebrities presenting dishes included Scott Conant, Geoffrey Zakarian, Sunny Anderson, Anne Burrell, Bethanny Frankel, local celeb Paul Castronovo, event host Duff Goldmann and Andrew Zimmern and Debi Mazar. KC and the Band provided entertainment, which really got the crowd moving, especially with wild man Guy Fieri on percussions.
Scott Conant proved to be more popular with the ladies than Bethanny Frankel's Skinny Girl Margaritas. Scott presented an oyster mojito shooter which was actually the best thing we ate all evening. Thanks for the tip, Scott!
