Tasting Las Vegas TV Launches With Two Videos From Vegas Uncork’d Opening Day

With the addition of the Cyber-shot to the Tasting Las Vegas family, we now have the capability to bring you poorly shot videos along with our shoddy photography and incomprehensible grammar!  What better time to launch this new feature than with the opening of the biggest gastronomic event on Planet Earth (F.U. Aspen!), Vegas Uncork’d!

Our very first episode is of a group of chefs that went to the Three Square Food Bank to check out the facilities and help prepare some meals for children in need.  Here is Chef Martin Heierling of Silk Road and Sensi explaining what’s going in the sandwiches along with chefs Robert Moore of Jean-Georges Steakhouse, Issac Carter of Todd English P.U.B., Pastry Master Jean Philippe Maury, and Shawn McClain of Sage.

Our second video is the official kickoff event for Vegas Uncork’d with a few words from Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman and then the legendary Alain Ducasse doing a traditional champagne sabering (sabrage for you folks keeping track of the fancy words).  On the stage were 40 of the greatest chefs on Earth. Big fun.  Oh…and if you look closely, you can see Robin Leach get champagne sprayed on him like a hot chick in a rap video.  Enjoy!
