During the recent New York City Wine and Food Festival (which took place October 17-20), TV’s top chefs caught up with Mediabistro to discuss all things food.

In our video interview (Part I of II), Iron Chef and Chopped judge Alex Guarnaschelli had plenty of things to say about bacon (basically, bacon just makes everything better); Restaurant: Impossible‘s Robert Irvine (whose new Food Network show, Restaurant Express, premieres on Nov. 3) shares what we can create with seasonal pumpkin; and the always adventurous Andrew Zimmern (right, host of the Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods America) reveals his favorite neighborhood joints in New York City.
