Michael Symon coming to Pittsburgh

Written by Bob Batz Jr. on


Celebrity chef Michael Symon is heading to Pittsburgh to promote his new book.

The former Food Network Iron Chef is co-host of ABC's "The Chew" and the Cleveland-based owner of several restaurants, including Bar Symon Kitchen & Taphouse at Pittsburgh International Airport.

The author of "Michael Symon’s Live to Cook" and "Michael Symon’s Carnivore," he's just about to publish "Michael Symon's 5 in 5: 5 Fresh Ingredients + 5 Minutes = 120 Fantastic Dinners" (Clarkson Potter; on sale Sept. 3; $19.99) that he wrote with Douglas Trattner.08262013symonbook

The publisher says Chef Symon had "harried home cooks in mind" with this formula for answering the question, "What's for dinner?" The book covers setting up your pantry as well as tips and lots of recipes, including Fresh Orecchiette with Sausage & Kale, Salmon with Rosemary & Garlic, Fried Salami & Fontina Frittata and Garlic Chicken with Asparagus, as well as Salted Caramel Sundae with Peanuts.
He'll sell and sign them at at least two area events: 

• 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sun., Sept. 8 at Giant Eagle Market District at Settlers Ridge


 • 3 to 5 p.m. Sun., Sept. 8, at Giant Eagle Market District at South Hills Village.
