Cooking with David Dadekian on The Rhode Show at Blackbird Farm
Each year The Rhode Show runs a “Search for a Star” competition to see who will be a host of the show for the following year. Out of countless video entries and live auditions, online voters choose 20 semi-finalists and then another round of online voting produces the top 5 finalists for the position. Tashanea Whitlow is one of those finalists and a few weeks ago she contacted Eat Drink RI for her competition assignment “Eating Well.” Whitlow and her videographer came to Blackbird Farm where Eat Drink RI‘s David Dadekian showed them around the barn with Farm owner Ann Marie Bouthillette. After capturing some video of the pedigreed Black Angus cattle and American Heritage Berkshire pigs, Dadekian took Whitlow into the farmhouse kitchen where he prepared Steak Fajitas as a demonstration of a quick and easy dinner. Below is the “Eating Well” segment with Dadekian. You can watch Whitlow’s “Search for a Star” videos on the WPRI site, and cast your vote for her to be the next Rhode Show Star.
