Carving Pumpkins

It’s hard to think about getting into the Halloween spirit as many of us continue to clean up from Sandy. Before the storm hit.. we had the chance to partake in what’s becoming a family tradition– pumpkin carving. We were excited to once again host a special family event at Wildfire in Tysons Galleria. Part of the proceeds went to wonderful local charity Food for Others. Hope everyone has a happy Halloween!

Time to mark this thing up!

Super Bowl Spread

Man, I breathed through my mouth the entire show to avoid being teased by the awesome Super Bowl spread Wildfire brought into the studio this morning. Chris Gordon (who did his 1st cooking segment ever!) joined Chef Eddie Ishaq to make some awesome finger foods for those planning a Super Bowl party!

Well we hope you’ll tune in this Saturday morning at 9AM when we have Wildfire’s Executive Chef Eddie Ishaq on to show us some easy appetizers on game day. Feel free to send me your best game day recipes.. we want things that are easy and big hits at the party.

Pumpkin Carving Class

Today we hosted a pumpkin carving class at Wildfire Restaurant at Tysons Galleria. It was super fun… and some even came in costumes. There were kids there of all ages… ranging from 10 months (Adora!) to tweens. Executive Chef Eddie Ishaq let everyone pick out their pumpkin… within a matter of minutes everyone was carving away. It was really easy for rookies like me (I use to paint the outside of the pumpkin). There was a variety of stencils to choose from… I decided on the spooky ghost. Oh the best part? Lotsa lotsa Halloween candy ¬†and roasted pumpkin seeds were center pieces on each table! For future kid classes visit Wildfire online.
