Graham Elliot Bowles to cook at Lollapalooza

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bummed about the Beastie Boys not being able to play Lollapalooza? Don't sell your ticket just yet. There have been two major additions to the fest to counteract that one sizable subtraction.

The first, you know: the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who will take over the Beasties' time slot. The second? Celebrity chef Graham Elliot Bowles, who gave perhaps the most entertaining (if ultimately unsuccessful) "Top Chef Masters" performance of the Bravo show's first season a few weeks ago, and whose restaurant, Graham Elliot, has gotten high marks for its inventive, whimsical contemporary cuisine. That personality will be on display during Lollapalooza, as Bowles will offer a number of his signature dishes to a hungry crowd: lobster corndogs with lemon aioli, buffalo chicken with PBR bubbles, teriyaki portobello satay with spicy peanut sauce and black-pepper-parmesan-truffle popcorn. Sounds better than a greasy pizza slice, eh?

The chef, a well-known rock aficionado, will also be cooking up some specials backstage for Lolla organizer Perry Farrell and the rest of Jane's Addiction. We're hoping he churns out at least one MCA-inspired dish. Say, "B-Boy Bouillabaise"?
