DAINA FALK FROM HUNGRY FAN
Daina is a bestselling cookbook author and nationally known game day expert. The daughter of legendary sports agent, David Falk, she grew up around sports and extraordinary professional athletes. With an adoration for food and a love for tailgating and homegating, or as she calls them, fangating, she launched the lifestyle brand, Hungry Fan, to help sports fans up their game day celebrations.
When she isn’t ideating tasty sports food recipes, she produces and hosts digital content and TV shows, provides culinary experiences for corporations and professional sports teams, and enjoys being mom to a precocious cockapoo pup named Moose. Daina likes to think that if Anthony Bourdain, Martha Stewart, and Guy Fieri were to have a child, it’d be her. (Also, that’d be weird.)

A modern take on Mexican coastal cuisine.
Top Chef All-Star Richard Blais
Most recognizable as the winner of Bravo's Top Chef: All-Stars, Richard Blais has played an influential role in hospitality for the last 15 years. He began his career, as so many young aspiring chefs do, as the "poissonnier" at McDonald's. It was here that he first dabbled in deconstruction in cuisine, serving Filet-O-Fish sandwiches sans top bun. His developing passion for food and the service industry led Richard to The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y. As an ambitious student, he spent time between semesters studying at the French Laundry in Yountville, Calif., under renowned Chef Thomas Keller and alongside then-rising stars Grant Achatz and Eric Ziebold.
Richard has competed in Bravo's Top chef and Top Chef: All-Stars, Cutthroat Kitchen: Superstar Sabotage, Hungry Games, Guy's Grocery Games and Halloween Baking Championship. He has also been a judge on Guy's Grocery Games, Cutthroat Kitchen: Superstar Sabotage, Masterchef and Masterchef Junior.
Since winning Top Chef: All-Stars, Richard has gone on to open four restaurants, Juniper & Ivy, The Crack Shack, Ember & Rye and Four Flamingos and created Trail Blais, his forward thinking culinary company that has consulted on, designed and operated some of Atlanta's most-popular eateries, including multiple outposts of Flip Burger Boutique and HD-1.
