Nathan Peck From Nate's and Keith Hicks from Ovation at The State Fair of Texas Saturday, October 6th!

Just a heads up that Chef Nathan Peck, known to blues fans and lovers of fabulous cajun food worldwide as Nate, will return again this year to present a cooking demonstration as a Celebrity Chef Saturday October 6th at 4:30 pm in the Creative Arts Building at the Great State Fair of Texas!

Nate's seafood gumbo is my favorite in the whole world. Matter of fact, it was the one thing I craved most while I was away in Scotland last year, and made sure to go get some the moment I came back.

Nate is a tireless supporter of my KNON BIG TEXAS BLUES radio show, my band Blue Lisa & the The Big D Playboys (we'll be performing at Nate's that week on Thursday, October 4th) , and all the blues musicians in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. And you just haven't lived until you've seen him doing the "Nate Boogie." So take advantage of this rare opportunity to see the master at work.

As a matter of coincidence, following Nate in the Celebrity Kitchen will be Keith Hicks, Chef at Ovation Restaurant in Fort Worth. At Ovation, Keith adds his unique flair to some of my favorite southern soul food dishes. Fried green tomatoes with a fried egg on top covered in Bearnaise sauce? Mmmmmm! Keith will be doing his thing in the State Fair Celebrity Kitchen at 6:00 p.m.
Owners Mike & Carrie Musgrove book the finest live Blues and Jazz the area has to offer. For example, when he's not out on the road with John Mayall, Buddy Whittington holds court on stage at Ovation every Monday night.

The cooking demos are free with your paid admission to the State Fair. For more info about the State Fair of Texas, visit

One word of warning - Saturday, October 6th is also the day of the Texas/OU Red River Rivalry Football Game is the same day, which means the Fair will be extra crowded. Don't say I didn't warn you!
