The popular star of Food Network's "Restaurant Remakes" and Cooking Channel's "Taverns, Lounges & Clubs" will be at Borgne Restaurant, preparing sporty snacks with one of LG's top refrigerators, with the award-winning "Blast Chiller" technology that chills a 12-ounce canned beverage in five minutes or a bottle of wine in eight minutes.
Hosting a High-Tech Haven
To serve the droves of media in New Orleans from Jan. 31-Feb. 2, LG will host a complimentary lounge at the acclaimed Borgne Restaurant.
