Chef Beau MacMillan to Appear on Today Show
Cardinals go to the Super Bowl, Arizona gets a windfall of PR. Totally expected.
But publicity for a local chef is certainly an unusual perk for the Phoenix culinary world.
He's been selected to represent Arizona in a culinary challenge against an as-of-yet unannounced chef from Pittsburgh. (What does that say about Pittsburgh's restaurant scene, anyway?) Each chef will be preparing regionally themed party foods.
***UPDATE: MacMillan will compete against Bill Fuller, corporate chef of Big Burrito Restaurant Group; the segment will air sometime between 10 and 11 a.m.
