Impacto created the award in 2005 to "recognize individuals who have made great contributions to the Delaware Valley's Latino community and the community at large," Napoleon Garcia, the magazine's publisher, said in a statement.

THOSE KILLER SONGS you hear on Fox's hit hip-hop soap "Empire"? They're coming straight out of Philly. Producer Jim Beanz , born James David Washington , works with superproducer Timbaland to create the pulse of the show. Beanz told me he creates about 90 percent of the music, working with local producer J. Nick and London's TroyBoi , with Timbaland overseeing the entire operation. "Most of the music was done here, at my studio in Bryn Mawr, believe it or not," Beanz told me from the show's premiere in L.A. last week.

Based on a memoir by English food writer Nigel Slater, this slight but whimsically enjoyable film charts his coming-of-age as a food enthusiast and gay youth, both of which were pretty difficult in mid-'60s Britain. Oscar Kennedy plays the preteen Nigel, a precocious kid with an interest in cooking even though his mother's idea of dinner is canned vegetables and toast.

  Craig LaBan: Jose's ever-growing and multi-belled restaurant empire (Amada, Tinto, Distrito, Chifa, Village Whiskey) is a chat-room's favorite. But this visit is timely, because Sunday was the debut episode of his quest to become the Food Network's Next Iron Chef . Garces handily won the first challenge, to create a comfort food starter, with an Ecuadorian stew of annatto chicken broth and queso fresco. Things got scary in the next round with the some frightening ingredients ranging from duck tongues to unlaid chicken eggs.

LONG WAY from Hollywood to the Hollywood Diner, but Anthony Michael Hall has been hanging out for weeks at the Woodbury Heights, N.J., restaurant.

Like so many inventions before it, the BKON Craft Brewer began with a tenacious individual, a basement workshop, and a flash of inspiration. In this case, that individual was Dean Vastardis, who then worked at his family's business, Pennsauken's Lacas Coffee. The inspiration? It came from the Food Network. "I was watching Iron Chef and seeing how they sous-vide marinate proteins," he said. "It was very interesting to me how you could take something that would take hours - to marinate meats - and do it in a matter of minutes.
