Food Network Stars Duff Goldman, Tyler Florence to Headline 2014 Taste of St. Louis
On Monday, Taste of St. Louis announced that two big-name Food Network stars will headline this year’s fest on Sept. 19-21.
Chefs Tyler Florence of “The Great Food Truck Race” and “Food Court Wars” and Duff Goldman from “Ace of Cakes” will be in Chesterfield for the 10th anniversary of the fest. They’ll be joined by bands Big Head Todd and the Monsters and The Urge.
The weekend also features the Stella Artois Chef Battle Royale, a live culinary competition that pits eight of the region’s top chefs against each other on the Culinary Stage in seven “battle” categories.

Scott Phillips of Balaban’s, Dave Rook of Bishop’s Post, Robert Trampier of St. Louis Country Club and Wil Pelly of Sanctuaria.
Another fest favorite, Sauce Magazine’s Restaurant Row, includes more than 30 local restaurants. Look for Annie Gunn’s, Bishop’s Post, Hank’s Cheesecakes, Kakao Chocolate, Strange Donuts and Sugarfire Smoke House, among many others.
