Last night’s MPT half-hour program, Obsessed with Everything Food: A Living Magazine, featuring the 2009 Top Chef contestant and Frederick chef Bryan Voltaggio, will be used as a pilot for national series following Chef Voltaggio across America in search of regional favorites.

The special showed the chef performing his cooking magic at his Frederick restaurant VOLT and touring some of his favorite culinary spots across the state. On the program, he visits a local food farm, experiences steamed crabs prepared Maryland watermen’s way, and prepares a recipe for Chesapeake Bay blue crab rolls. He also makes a stop at Flying Dog, Frederick’s own micro-brewery.
