Tomorrow at the historic Andrew Freedman Home, our culinary ambassador and New York Emmy Winner, Baron Ambrosia, will premier his movie, ‘The Baron Is Dead’ along with a concert by the legendary Grand Master Mele Mel.

Many of you know the Baron from his Bronx Flavor show on BronxNet which takes the viewer on the many gastronomical delights the Bronx has to offer. His zany antics makes the show far more entertaining than anything you’ll encounter on the Food Network.

His shows eventually caught the eyes of the Cooking Channel where Baron Ambrosia continues to take us on his incredible journeys.

You may also remember that this past he was the first person to swim the entire length of the Bronx River and several years ago on a cold, winter’s night, we broke bread at the Old Bronx Courthouse and feasted upon beaver, possum, squirrel, racoon, fisher and yes, ants, silkworms and water bugs. I couldn’t eat the water bugs but the racoon was divine.

In her article in the New York Times, Winnie Hu says:

“If New York City’s fine dining establishments live by Michelin stars and Zagat ratings, the myriad homegrown restaurants and shops of the Bronx have their own roving critic. Those that please the Baron’s palate are recommended to his fans and featured in his ever-expanding portfolio of media projects, which includes podcasts and two culinary-themed shows on the Cooking Channel and BronxNet, a local cable television network.”
