The summer season is fully under way, and according to a recent Mix 96 survey, the even you're MOST looking forward to is just days away!

The largest 2-day food festival in the COUNTRY, Taste of Buffalo, is this weekend.

Grab you're loosest-fitting clothes and join thousands of hungry Buffalonians as we sample from over 50 restaurants, 7 wineries, and everything in between.

Last year, I was a judge...and since I still have my fat-pants, they've invited me back again!  SO Saturday, I'll be rolling around (literally) in an "official" capacity...I hope to see you!

Even more exciting, this year I was asked to head up a team of 3 in Media Celebrities Burger Battle (scroll to the bottom under Sunday festivities), and being the foodie that I am, naturally, I accepted!

The recipe I submitted is called the "Buffalo Bacon Bomb Burger" (not pictured above)....it may shatter records.  WHICH records remains to be seen! Of course, I can't share the secret recipe just yet, but after this weekend, I'll post it! :)

My two partners are WGRZ's Mary Alice Demler ......

.......and WNY Heroes president Chris Kreiger.

The competition will be on the Culinary Stage in the New Era Cap parking lot...it's FREE to view, seating is first come first served!  Come watch!   Sunday, 4:30-5:30!
