Food programs aren’t a regular staple in our TV viewing schedule, and rightfully so – we ain’t no chefs, but we love our chow.
One show however has duly caught our viewing fancy, a show that treats food and restaurants as hidden treasures hidden in an uncharted place as told by credible food personalities.
The title alone got us hooked real bad: The Best Thing I Ever Ate.
The Best Thing I Ever Ate features some of the most renowned chefs and personalities from the food industry sharing their personal picks of their favorite dishes ever eaten.
The show takes us where these food choices are found and features them for everyone to see.
Every episode is dedicated to featuring superb food categories such as the biggest rice bowls found in each state to the greatest grilled foods best served with beer. They even spill the goods on which day and what time it is best to drop by.
And if the food visuals don’t entice your appetite, some of the restaurants’ names will – the Buckeye Roadhouse in California, the House of the Prime Rib in San Francisco, and the FlipHappy Crepes in Texas, to name a few.
While our local dishes are nowhere near these food choices in location and availability, the show triggers an awesome nostalgia moment, encouraging us to remember and appreciate the wonders of good ol’ grandma’s cooking.
Here’s to gunning for a Philippine version of the show, because some of the most original, must-try dishes the world will ever taste could be right outside your house, or better yet, right in your kitchen.
The Best Thing I Ever Ate airs weekly on The Lifestyle Network.
