Cooking With Iron Chef Jose Garces

On Saturday, April 4, 2020, James Beard Award-winning chef Jose Garces — whose restaurants include Amada, Buena Onda, Distrito, JG Domestic, Stella, The Olde Bar, Tinto, Village Whiskey and Volvér — took Philly LIVE Weekends viewers into his own kitchen for a lesson in how to make chicken quesadillas with Mexican street corn and grilled vegetables. Viewers even got a treat as the Iron Chef took questions moderated by his son who was also running the camera. (Don't worry, he turns the camera shortly after the stream starts.)
