The Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, NJ had a three evening, two day, foodie packed schedule this weekend, with the logistics of this event being nothing short of mesmerizing. A three ring circus has less going on at any given moment than the Basie did on Saturday and Sunday. Andrew Zimmern was on the stage Friday night, while Giada de Laurentiis took her turn on Saturday night. Both familiar food network names, filled the theatre seats.
Getting a chef to talk about his experience and career is not an easy task, however, every now and then you get lucky. I ran into Zeet Peabody while he was teaching a cooking class at The Flaky Tart in the Atlantic Highlands a few weeks ago.
