Richmond Food TV Roundup

More locals show their stuff on food shows.

Richmonders keep hitting the small screen. Now that you've finished cheering for Claire Hollingsworth, the 10-year-old who won $10,000 on "Chopped Junior," there's another local competing on a show that will air on CNBC who's ready to grab your attention.

Instead of the usual splatter of most food shows, "Restaurant Startup" is the food world’s version of “Shark Tank.” Enterprising young chefs attempt to win over investors — here, Joe Bastianich, co-owner of New York’s Babbo and Del Posto, among 30 other restaurants, and a former judge on “Master Chef” and “Master Chef Junior,” Texan chef and restaurant owner Tim Love.

The Luncheonette’s Brad Barzoloski, who’s also the owner of fusion egg roll food truck Rolz, will pitch his egg roll-centic concept to Bastianich and Love on Wednesday, Feb. 10 at 10 p.m. on CNBC.

But Barsoloski’s rolls aren’t exactly what you’d expect. For instance, the Buff Rolz is composed of grilled chicken, cheddar cheese and bacon that’s hand-rolled and breaded in Doritos. Throw a little jalapeño ranch on there, and it’s a, a … words fail me. Barlsoloski also serves a cheeseburger between two fried mac ‘n’ cheese patties. Yes, you read that correctly — that would be mac ‘n’ cheese standing in for bread. Insanity.

You can join the local chef for the Feb. 10 premiere — along with friends and family, he’ll hold a viewing party at the Luncheonette at 104 N. 18th St. from 9-11 p.m that night.

Also, Chester’s Carie Pullano-Keller, who appeared in 2014 on ABC's “Home Chef Showdown” with Ryan Scott, made it to the final rounds of the fifth season of the Food Network’s “Worst Cooks in America,” with Bobby Flay and Anne Burrell, prior to that. “Worst Cooks” is currently in reruns, and you can also stream it via Netflix if you’d like to catch Pullano-Keller doing her thing all over again.
