Counter Intelligence: Wynn chefs plan cooking series to teach recipes
Hot off the grill! Hotel tycoon Steve Wynn’s chefs from his Wynn and Encore resort casinos have begun a unique 16-week series at our Whole Foods in Town Square featuring their favorite recipes. Donny Osmond is such a foodie that he even showed up for the debut demos and cooking event by SW Steakhouse chef David Walzog. David showed enthusiasts how to achieve the perfect charred steak at home!
