In just a few short weeks one of the Capital Region's own will be appearing on Food Network's 'Guy's Grocery Games'!

On August 29th Aneesa Waheed the co-owner of Schenectady and Troy's Tara Kitchen will appear on an episode of Food Network's "Guy's Grocery Games" hosted by Guy Fieri (of Diners, Drive-In's, and Dives).

This show is great because even though I can't cook anything but the basics to save my life it's let's me know that theoretically, if I put forth the effort, I could make restaurant quality meals at home with stuff I can find at like Hannaford or Price Chopper.

So whether you are a bit of a foodie, enjoy a good meal locally at one of her restaurants, are just looking for something 'restaurant quality' you can make at home, in just a couple of weeks you will be able to do so while cheering on one of the Capital Region's own competing for a chance to win $20,000! Which by the way she plans on donating should she take home the grand prize.
