Jaeden Lieberher, one of Hollywood hottest rising stars, and a Philadelphia native, took home his first major trophy – the golden popcorn award for best on-screen team for cast performance in “It” during the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards, which aired last night. “We just want to say thank you and...to thank our parents, especially our moms,” said a beaming Lieberher. “And we especially want to thank our fans, because you guys are so incredible. “I think we’re really lucky because you guys didn’t just look at it as a horror movie, but you saw the fun we had [making it], and we’re just really lucky.” Lieberher, 15, is the son of former Philadelphia chef Wes Lieberher. These days, both father and son live in Los Angeles, Calif. The 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards opened with show host and comedian Tiffany Haddish putting on a spoof of challenging the "Black Panther" throne and entering into battle … [Read more...] about Jaeden Lieberher, star of ‘It,’ takes home first major trophy at MTV Movie & TV Awards
Take home chef
Opinion PUBLISHED: 11:36 28 May 2018 Richard Hughes Are pancakes your home favourite - or it some other recipe? Then why not enter the EAT Norfolk Food Awards? Archant I’ve said and written on numerous occasion how I feel that cooking and competitiveness are not happy bedfellows. There really shouldn’t be winners or losers when it comes to making dinner. No one cooks well under pressure and I’d certainly wait another 10 minutes for my tea than the poor cook being told “you have three minutes to get this on the plate”, followed by “stand away from the table”. But I’m all for chefs being given awards for their efforts. Recognition for the dedication, commitment and discipline it takes to succeed in a professional kitchen is always gratefully received, be it Michelin stars, glowing reviews or red rosettes, but the trend to rate restaurants or chefs into some sort of order is a strange one. Particularly with food, it’s all … [Read more...] about Are you Norfolk’s best home cook?

0 View Gallery View Comments If wanting what you can't have holds true, then the owners of Mayo's O'Taste & See know exactly what they're doing with its limited hours. When open, this South Academy Boulevard eatery is packed, as if diners know they need to eat while the stove is hot. Mayo's only serves its homemade comfort fare between 11 a.m. and 5:45 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I asked an employee why just three days. He shrugged and said he wished it were more. He's not alone. This is an order-at-the counter establishment with a casual dining area that's much more inviting than the nondescript exterior suggests. The menu features a few Thai dishes along with predominantly Southern classics such as gumbo (Fridays only), fried pork chop, barbecue pulled pork and fried shrimp. The sides really show Southern roots: fried okra, macaroni and cheese, sweet potatoes and collard greens - among others. The banana pudding, peach cobbler and sweet potato pie provide the … [Read more...] about Down-home Southern fare
