Bobby Flay is touring to push his new cookbook, Bobby Flay’s Throwdown! More Than 100 Recipes From Food Network’s Ultimate Cooking Challenge. He'll hit two Williams-Sonoma stores on Wednesday, Oct. 13, to sign autographs: King of Prussia at 1 p.m. and the Bellevue (Broad and Walnut Streets) at 6 p.m. I'm sure he'll also drop by his Bobby's Burger Palace in University City between engagements.
Buy a roll, help a kid: Eagles right tackle Winston Justice has teamed up with the Rittenhouse Square restaurant Zama (128 S. 19th St.) on the "Justice for All" roll ($16), which consists of eight pieces of spicy tempura snow crab and shishi-toh pepper wrapped in soy paper, topped with tuna and scallion, and finished with chopped wasabi mayo and black tobiko. A portion of proceeds from the sale this month will go to the Variety Club.
