Come Dine with Me – WNY Showcases Restaurants & the Food Service Industry in WNY
This locally produced television series airs weekly on CW-23, WNLO-TV
Artisan Kitchens and Baths is pround to be sponsoring the half hour program: Come Dine with Me – WNY! This weekly half-hour show takes viewers behind-the-scenes of local restaurants and is hosted by restaurateur Russell Salvatore and co-hosted by Jan Ferington. Beginning April 3rd, the program airs Sunday evenings at 10:30 on CW23 WNLO.
The mission of “Come Dine with Me – WNY!” is twofold. Firstly, its goal is to promote local restaurants and encourage viewers to choose those establishments when dining out. Secondly, it is to share recipes and techniques with viewers to improve their at-home dining experience.
The show features four local celebrity chefs; Marco Sciortino (Marco’s), Krista Van Wagner (Curly’s), Tucker Curtin (The Steer, Lake Effect Diner and Dug’s Dive) and Art Christy (Frontier Catering). Each chef has an engaging personality that easily wins over our television audience said executive producer, Michael Fantaske. “And each chef is qualified and comfortable working side by side with other local chefs from some of the areas finest restaurants who are part of the series” he added.
Western New York is home to more great restaurants at the best value for the dollar, than any other part of the country. “Come Dine with Me – WNY” is a real opportunity to promote the area by capitalizing on that unique strength.
Each episode will showcase local restaurants, take video tours and highlight recipes and techniques in the show’s studio kitchen located here at Artisan Kitchen’s and Baths at 200 Amherst St. in Buffalo, NY. Central to each episode is our “Home Invasion” segment in which our celebrity chefs invade a different residence each week and get to prepare dinner side by side with the home owners.
“Western New York has so many wonderful restaurants. Unfortunately, many of us drive right by those places on our way to a national chain for dinner. This show gives viewers an opportunity to get to know the best of what’s available locally,” said Salvatore, host of the show.
