Culinary Arts Series Brings Food And Fun

Three culinary masters will use sugar, flavor and music in their first appearances at the OC Fair as part of this year's Culinary Arts Series each Thursday night on Plaza Arts Stage.

Rocco DiSpirito

Appearing on July 13 at 5 p.m., Warren Brown, is a success story of a health care lawyer turned baker. After several years of professional work in the health care industry as a scholar, educator and lawyer, Brown found in 2000 that his true calling was as a baker. Now Brown's passion and delicious made-from-scratch sweets are enjoyed at his restaurant Love Cafe and bakery CakeLove, and on his Food Network TV show "Sugar Rush."

Rocco DiSpirito, who will hold center-stage on July 20 at 5 p.m., is a successful chef, author, entrepreneur, business owner and radio personality, but he is best known for his part in the hit reality-TV show, "The Restaurant". DiSpirito has used his spirit in the kitchen and flavor in his dishes to please audiences throughout the nation since 1995. He is the author of three cookbooks, "Flavor," "Rocco's Italian American," and the recently released, "5 Minute Flavor."

Best known for his musical approach to cooking as The Singing Chef®, Andy LoRusso, July 27 at 5 p.m., combines a love of Italian cooking and songs. Since 1991, LoRusso has been serenading while marinating at a number of TV appearances, fairs, festivals and a variety of culinary events. He is the author of the popular cookbook, "Sing & Cook Italian."

All three chefs will immediately follow their appearances with an autograph signing and/or book sale.
