After a weekend full of lines, autographs and meeting comic book legends at the Baltimore Comic Con, I got right back into the fray Tuesday night at a book signing with two fan favorites from the latest season of The Next Food Network Star. The Momma’s Boy Vic “Vegas” Moea and this year’s winner, “Sandwich King” Jeff Mauro, made a stop on their book tour at the Barnes & Noble in Cherry Hill, NJ, and since our own food expert Angelique was not able to attend, I went in her place doing my best to represent both MLD and Not Just Take Out.
Angie is a big fan of food, and her interest in all things Food Network has become infectious. It started with a Chopped marathon that kept me up late one night long after she’d fall asleep after turning it on, and led to my watching this season of The Next Food Network Star with her every week. I’m even rooting for “The Sandwich King” Jeff Mauro because his motto of “every meal into a sandwich, every sandwich into a meal” agrees nicely with my life plan. Even though we skip the commercials of nearly everything we watch anymore, it was impossible not to catch promotional material for this new season of The Great Food Truck Race and it looks like it will nicely fill the void after tonight’s Food Network Star finale .
