Photos from Real Men Cook event: John Lewis, Jovita Moore, Jason Ellis

I posted my Ruben Studdard interview from the Real Men Cook event Sunday over on the “Idol” blog almost immediately. Held at the Georgia Railroad Depot near Underground Atlanta, several thousand people sampled food by dozens of professional and amateur male cooks for charity.

Here are some leftover photos I took from the event as well.

Here is Sam Crenshaw, the sports anchor at WXIA-TV with cook Esther Caspino.


And Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga) in a chef’s cap.


His barbecue chicken was great!


Jason Ellis has survived four eliminations so far on Fox’s “Hell’s Kitchen.”


Former WAOK-AM talk show host Shelley Wynter is still hoping to get back on Atlanta radio:


WSB-TV’s Jovita Moore and John Bachman did some MC work:


Supervising producer Roger Bobb of Tyler Perry Studios served lemon pepper wings:


Chef Jamika from the 2009 edition of “Next Food Network Star” did much of the MC work:

Shelley Wynter added a unique and very interesting perspective to WAOK. I hope another local talk radio station picks him up. It is a shame WAOK shakes at its boots when an intelligent man like Wynter provokes intelligent conversation. His radio show format reminded me of the now defunct “Emerge” magazine. It was a show that truly challenge its listeners to look outside the box.

It is very interesting for me to read the post. Thanks for it. I like such topics and anything that is connected to them. I definitely want to read more on this blog soon. BTW, rather good design your site has, but don’t you think design should be changed every few months?
