By now, local food lovers may have already heard that Food Network will be taping an episode of “Food Court Wars” at Pierre Bossier Mall on Saturday, Jan. 25. While the program’s producers are keeping a tight lid on who exactly will be competing during Saturday’s taping, the competitors will be local food vendors who are battling head-to-head to open their own “dream eatery” in a food court. I contacted the producers of the show, and received the following info on how the public can participate in Saturday’s taping:
