To celebrate early rising tailgaters, those who put in the hard work long before food gets off the grill, Kellogg’s Raisin Bran® and retired football player Spice Adams surprised morning tailgaters in Chicago this past weekend with a bit of fun and a “sunny” breakfast to start their day. As early-rising football fans prepped for their pre-game ritual in the early Autumn light, Spice Adams wandered into their setups with a mobile game day breakfast cart – complete with a milk-dispensing keg – to serve up sunshine, fun, and Kellogg’s Raisin Bran.

“Even after retiring, I’m still waking up bright and early on game days to tailgate with friends and family. But let’s be honest, setting up a proper tailgate is hard work and I need a good breakfast to start my day right,” said Adams. “I love Kellogg’s Raisin Bran because it’s heart-healthy2 and has the perfect sweet, sunny kick to keep me going till the final play.”

Kellogg’s Raisin Bran is available at grocery and mass retail stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $4.29. Visit for more information on Kellogg’s Raisin Bran, and check out the surprise breakfast on Spice Adam’s social media channels.

Chicago Style: The James Beard Foundation Awards Gala 2016



If you have ever had the pleasure of planning a vacation to Chicago, or better yet, fortunate enough to live in Chicago, then you know the first thing that you need to have…is a healthy appetite. Chicago is not a destination, it’s an experience, a culinary experience to be exact. With Chicago having so many Top Chefs, award-winning restaurants, food trucks, festivals, ethnic markets, distilleries, cooking classes, local food artisans and farmers, it was really no surprise that last night Chicago would play host for the second time in a row to the Oscars of Food… The James Beard Foundation Awards Gala.

The event took place at the Lyric Opera of Chicago and was also available on Live Stream.  Co-Host of ABC’s The Chew, Carla Hall’s Southern Kitchen, Top Chef Finalist, Owner of Carla Hall Petite Cookies, Author, and Celebrity Chef…Carla Hall, mesmerized the audience with her infectious bubbly personality.

The James Beard Awards are the highest honor for culinary professionals for excellence and achievement in their fields, including but not limited to, chefs, restaurateurs, cookbook authors, and food journalists.  The highlight of the evening was the representation of female chefs in an industry that seems to be primarily male dominated, with Joanne Chang of Boston’s Flour Bakery + Café winning for Outstanding Baker, Dahlia Narvaez of L.A.’s Osteria Mozza for Outstanding Pastry Chef, Suzanne Goin of L.A.’s Lucques for Outstanding Chef, and Daniela Soto-Innes of NYC’s Cosme for Rising Star Chef. This is the only the second time all three major chef awards have gone to women, the first was in 2004.

Another highlight of the evening was the Queen of Creole, Culinary Legend, New Orleans Chef Leah Chase of Dooky Chase, accepted this year’s Lifetime Achievement award. Chef Leah Chase is the first African-American Beard Lifetime Achievement Award winner. “I don’t know how I got here, but this gives me courage to keep going,” said Chase. “I’m 93 years old…and this gives me courage to keep going for about 10, 12 more years.”

Congratulations to all the winners and nominees. For a complete list of winners click here. And just in case you were wondering…The James Beard Foundation Awards Gala will return to Chicago next year. See ya there!
