Catch Geoffrey and Food Network Friends on the Radio Tomorrow

Related To:

You've surely seen him on television as a Chopped judge and as an Iron Chef  America superstar in Kitchen Stadium, and you may have even seen him in person at some of his restaurants. But come tomorrow you can hear from Geoffrey Zakarian in one of the most unlikely of places: the radio. For only the third time ever, Geoffrey is teaming up with SiriusXM radio to host a Food Talk broadcast, and the latest show premieres tomorrow, Wednesday, at 7am EST on Stars Channel 106.

This past weekend brought together the most renowned names in the culinary industry at the sixth annual New York City Wine & Food Festival, and Geoffrey kicked off the celebration last Friday by bringing together some of your favorite Food Network stars, including Bobby Flay, Sunny Anderson and Jeff Mauro, plus his fellow members on the Chopped panel, for relaxed chats — and plenty of laughs. Huddled in a studio at the SiriusXM headquarters high atop Manhattan, Geoffrey and his guests munched on sweet and savory bites from his restaurant The National, and dished about some of the most-talked-about topics in the food industry today.

At top of mind for most was Food Network's upcoming birthday. Next month the network turns 20 years old, so the chefs reminisced about their earliest shows and looked back on how far food TV has progressed in two decades. For Ted Allen, Food Network's staying power can be credited to "the expertise and the depth of knowledge" that's offered up daily in the kitchen on-air, and he and Geoffrey noted that fans of all ages from across the country are now open to learning about new tastes and foods.

When Bobby took the microphone, the conversation turned away from food, as he recounted his wild — and ultimately dangerous — golf cart ride with Michael Symon that led to Bobby jumping out of a moving cart and hurting his shoulder.

Tune in to Geoffrey's SiriusXM Food Talk on Stars Channel 106 tomorrow, Wednesday, Oct. 23 from 7-9am, and browse more insider coverage of the New York City Wine & Food Festival.
