Kelsey Nixon, host of Cooking Channel‘s Kelsey’s Essentials, tells Food Network Magazine what to eat in her hometown, Salt Lake City.
Shrimp-Stuffed Mushrooms From Tin Angel Café
This cafe and art gallery was one of Kelsey’s favorite hangouts after she graduated from nearby Brigham Young University (she now lives in New York full-time). Stuffed mushrooms, filled with peppers, onions and shrimp, was her go-to dish. “I’ve been meaning to re-create something similar at home,” she says. And she should: They come and go from the menu!

Last year, FN Dish introduced you to a new series on Cooking Channel called Classy Ladies. For 2013, they’re shaking things up even more with a familiar Food Network face, Adam Gertler (Food Network Star and Kid in a Candy Store), in Food Bites.
Taste test the best (and worst) of food television with him every Thursday as he takes his steak knife to the world of food. Nothing’s off-limits and everything’s served up with a dash of humor.
What does a cigarette and vodka have to do with a bologna volcano? Find out on the latest episode of Food Bites, where Adam explores pork-related food crimes, pickles with Kelsey Nixon, visits with the Bare Nekked Chef and, for good measure, also talks with the Nearly Naked Chef (click the play button above to watch).

- Meet Nadia G., Cooking Channel host and South Beach reporter extraordinaire
At this year’s South Beach Food & Wine Festival, Cooking Channel’s Nadia G. — the hilariously irreverent host of Bitchin’ Kitchen — was on the ground chatting it up with everyone from Duff Goldman to our newest Iron Chef, Marc Forgione. Check out some footage from this Canadian rising star’s whirlwind weekend down South.
At the Best Thing I Ever Ate at the Beach party, Nadia posed a question that’s bound to get any chef fired up: What’s the worst thing you ever ate?
During the day, Nadia chatted with Guy Fieri about cooking with kids, a subject near and dear to both of these personality-packed chefs, who also share a penchant for tattoos.
Then Nadia hung out backstage during Guy’s standing-room-only cooking demo, which truly looked like a rock concert. Check out her guest appearance on stage — it was a surprise to everyone, including Nadia!
Want to see more Nadia G.? Check out more videos from South Beach on our sister blog Devour and catch Bitchin’ Kitchen on Wednesdays at 10:30pm/9:30c on Cooking Channel.
