Ms. Linda, "The Ya-Ka-Mein Lady," to appear tomorrow night on Food Network's Chopped



Chopped is that show on Food Network where contestants are given baskets full of surprise culinary items (cow intestines, pomegranate seeds and Marshmallow Fluff, for example) and forced to create an appetizer, entree or dessert on the spot. Several New Orleans chefs have competed on the show, but tomorrow night one of the basket-openers will be Linda Green, better known as "The Ya-Ka-Mein Lady." (Ms. Linda has already appeared on the Travel Channel; Anthony Bourdain had her on his show No Reservations.)

The Rendezvous Tavern (3101 Magazine St., 891-1777) is having a public viewing party for the episode Tuesday night, with drink specials and food provided by Ms. Linda herself. The party starts at 8 p.m. and Chopped airs at 9 p.m.
