What’s for dinner at 6, when it’s 4:30 at your house?

So, you’re not a chef at a 5 star restaurant. You have no walk-in freezer or Sous Chef to help. You don’t even have time to dash to the grocery store, let alone some specialty food shop.

You’re a real person with a family to feed, on a real budget juggling a very real schedule. But you want to serve your family

a “Glam” meal, and one that’s healthy too. Now what?

Dylan Dreyer’s just like you. She’s up at 3 AM to prepare the WHDH-TV Channel 7 weather long before we’re even up;

then dashes off to a jam-packed day of Wedding planning with her real family too. Fifteen hours later she’s racing

over to Waltham to team with Chef German Lam onstage at a cooking demonstration to support the

Waltham Food & Wine Festival, devoted family still in tow.

“No recipes, just simple & easy – freestyle is my favorite” Dreyer says. There’s no walk-in freezer or Sous Chef in her house either.

Together, Dylan and Chef German Lam share with 600 other “real” people, three success principles to freestyle cooking:

1)       The majority of ingredients you will need to cook a “Glam” meal you already have in your house.

2)       Get creative with common ingredients and you will always create uncommon results.

3)       Thinking differently is the real secret to creating quick, easy-to-prepare and far healthier meals


Come join this celebration of the creativity and innovation that is indigenous to New England. Be inspired by WHDH Channel 7  Meteorologist Dylan Dreyer as she joins Chef German Lam of Glam Foods in an onstage demonstration of the creative process.

Get your inventiveness in gear with a glass of champagne or fine wine while placing bids at the silent auction. Mix and mingle amongst an anticipated crowd of over 600 guests from the Waltham and Metrowest communities.

Re-ignite your own dreams of how you can make the world a better place while sampling fare’s prepared by some of Waltham’s most popular restaurants, all complemented by a bounty of fine wines chosen and served by the sommeliers of Gordon’s Fine Wine & Culinary Center .

Master of Ceremonies Krazy Kulo of Jamn 94.5 FM will keep the fun and entertainment electrified as the famed Chef Jose Duarte of Taranta and Chef Brian Kilroy of Biagio Ristorante offer live cooking demonstrations, while members from the The Waltham Philharmonic Orchestra energize and inspire you.

The 20th Annual Waltham Food and Wine Festival rocks the Westin Waltham Boston Hotel 70 Third Ave in Waltham, MA on Thursday, April 5, 2012 from 6-9 PM benefiting the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation.
