Returning by popular demand to this year's show is renowned cooking personality, Chef J. Warren. Warren is famous for his work this past year with "low-carb lifestyle" food preparation and presentation. He'll share his secrets on where to find the best tasting "legal" foods, how to prepare meals in a flash and how to dine out and eat like a king while losing weight. Also, Warren's showcase kitchen will offer home and garden show attendees a peek at the future of kitchen design and technology.
