Taylor Hicks on Food Network

A local celebrity that is well-known in Alabama will be on the Food Network on Saturday August 4th.  Taylor Hicks is the owner of ORE Drink and Dine in Crestline Park in Birmingham.  But he is well-known as the American Idol winner in season 5. And he was also in the 18-month tour of the Broadway play Grease where he played Teen Angel.  But Taylor Hicks does have a passion for food and he will be appearing on the Food Network show Paula’s Best Dishes.  He will join forces with Paula Deen and create some food dishes for Paula Deen’s poker party!

The episode titled “Road House Eats” will feature some dishes that would go well at any party.  First, the duo set the tone with tempting Ham & Double Cheese Turnovers with Honey-Mustard Dipping Sauce, and then it was “on” with a Cheeseburger Pizza that will have your taste buds singing.  Finally, Taylor reveals the harmonious blend of flavors in ORE Drink and Dine’s constant-crave and fan favorite Crawfish Rolls, a signature starter at his popular Birmingham eatery.

The episode will premiere on the Food Network on Saturday, August 4, 2012 at 10/9 AM Central.  Sadly we tried to get Taylor Hicks for an interview but he was busy.  For more information on ORE Drink and Dine go to: www.OREDrinkandDine.com.  For more information on Taylor Hicks go to: www.TaylorHicks.com.
