Renowned Food Critic Peter Dills to Join the Taste of Duarte
The Duarte Chamber of Commerce is excited to once again have renowned food critic Peter Dills at our Taste of Duarte and Business Expo on May 23, 2018 at Westminster Gardens in Duarte. A strong supporter of local restaurants, Peter has been drawn to the variety of food and beverages at Taste of Duarte for the last three years.
Participant Dean Lyon, owner of Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Duarte, was happy to hear that Mr. Dills was returning. “It’s awesome to have Peter Dills at the Taste of Duarte again. Having him here motivates our team to showcase our awesome smoked meats and home style sides. We know Dickey’s in Duarte is the best around, and to be able to share it with Peter is a highlight of our year,” said Dean.
Chamber President Sheryl Lefmann related that, “Having Peter join us again means the world to us. His interaction with the participants and attendees is a highlight of the night. We are proud of our event and his participation is an affirmation of what a great affair it is.”
Peter, also known as the King of Cuisine, readily admits to being born into a world of food. The son of noted restaurant critic Elmer Dills, he and his family moved to Pasadena in 1970 from the “Crab Capitol of the World,” Baltimore.
As far back as he can remember Peter was following his father from restaurant to restaurant, always tasting, always learning about food and always discovering new and exciting foods.
As his food adventure comes full circle, he now stars on TV with the popular Food and Travel show, "Dining with Dills", named after his father. He also is on The Answer AM 870 radio and KLAA Angels Radio AM 830.
