Food Network fans were treated to cooking demonstrations yesterday by celebrity chefs Marcus Samuelsson and Anne Burrell, who are in the island for the Barbados Food & Wine And Rum Festival this weekend.

The grounds of Hilton Barbados were transformed into a cooking area where more than 200 eager foodies gathered to see Samuelsson and Burrell whip up some delectable fare.

Burrell made a grand start to her demonstration by dancing to music from superstar Rihanna. Along with sharing personal anecdotes and stories that had the audience bursting with laughter, both chefs also answered questions from the audience.  

Samuelsson is an internationally acclaimed chef, author and philanthropist who opened the restaurant Red Rooster Harlem in Harlem, and also planned the Obama administration’s first state dinner.

Burrell’s trademark spiky blond hair and flair for food can be seen on her Food Network series, Secrets Of A Restaurant Chef, and she also co-hosts Worst Cooks In America, a prime time reality show. (SH-O)

Were (they) afraid to tell Anne Burrell and the other chef to cover they hair, Hair is a thing that falls out a lot, but for us now, they will have so much to say. Why?

She always cooks with that hairstyle. When you're a celebrity chef I guess you can look like that. Ever seen Guy Fieri, another celebrity chef? His hair looks just like hers. I call them Thing One and Thing Two.
