After a weekend of attention from chefs and guests from around the nation, Austin will get more national face-time tonight on the Travel Channel’s "Chow Masters." The show is the product of chef Sammy DeMarco of Las Vegas and film director Frank Coraci ("The Wedding Singer," "The Waterboy").
The show highlights "innovative comfort food found off the beaten track." In each episode, the duo spotlights three chefs who will compete for the "Golden Skillet" award and a prize of $10,000. The Austin show, which spotlights tacos, airs tonight at 8:30 p.m.
The log-line for the Austin show reads: "Chef Sammy DeMarco and Hollywood director Frank Coraci travel to Austin for the three most creative and tastiest tacos. Contenders include such innovative ingredients as wasabi slaw and fried chicken."
That leads me to think of Torchy’s. Any guesses on the other two?
