VIDEO: TV Chefs Alex Guarnaschelli, Robert Irvine and Andrew Zimmern on Their Top Foods

During this month’s New York City Wine and Food Festival, we caught up with a few celebrity chefs to talk shop. (Although we can neither confirm nor deny the rumored food-poisoning bout at one particular event, we can confirm that the nibbles of pasta, meats, cheeses and mini cupcakes at the NYCWFF Grand Tasting were pretty darn tasty.) In our video interview (Part I of II), Iron Chef and Chopped judge Alex Guarnaschelli tells us about the joys of bacon; Restaurant: Impossible‘s Robert Irvine (whose new Food Network show, Restaurant Express, premieres on Nov. 3) gives us his top three uses for pumpkin; and Andrew Zimmern, host the Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods America (new season airs on Nov. 4), reveals the places in NYC that he hits up “without fail” whenever he’s in town.
