Can you distinguish someone’s sexual orientation by the contents of their grocery cart? Ted Allen, the food and wine connoisseur from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, takes a peek and reveals what he finds.

A native of Chicago, Ted Allen has been a contributing editor to Esquire magazine where he is co-author of the “Things a Man Should Know” column, which offers advice for men on fashion, sex, business etiquette, and cocktails.  He is the co-author of four books that grew out of the column, as well as the author of The Food You Want to Eat: 100 Smart, Simple Recipes, a cookbook that provides a solid repertoire of recipes for everyday living and entertaining.  Ted was a senior editor and restaurant critic with Chicago magazine and has interviewed such food luminaries as Mario Batali, Martha Stewart, Paul Bocuse, Trotter, Rick Tramonto, Gale Gand, and Rick Bayless.

Ted will be appearing in-person at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books this weekend, he'll be featured at the Cooking Stage at 3:30pm on Saturday, April 28.
