Shameless Plug – America’s Best (and ELV) on Food Network Tonight
AMERICA’S BEST continues tonight for its third segment featuring, occasionally, the fat, well-fed head of yours truly…
Alton Brown tours America’s Best chosen by Food Network Magazine with four premiere primetime specials.
Premieres Monday, September 20th at 9pm
On Monday night’s episode, ELV and James Beard Award winner Claude Le Tohic expounded on the ethereal quality of Joel Robuchon’s mashed taters, with a cameo by L’Atelier super-Chef Steve Benjamin. Later in the show, we waxed poetic with childhood memories of grilled cheese sandwiches, and made a casual, innocent observation about the….um…er…limited kitchen skills of Marcella Ruth Schroader Curtas (d.o.b. 8-10-24, The Official Mother Of ELV), a mere slip of the tongue that may get us cut out of the family fortune forever.
Premieres Tuesday, September 21st at 9pm
Last night, we weighed in on the spectacle of SWITCH and the amazing farm-to-table offerings of Blackberry Farm, with extensive appearances by Wynn/Encore’s F&B honcho Richard Alexander, and SWITCH Chef Rene Lenger. Of course, you may not agree with all of the FN opinions about what and where constitutes the best food destinations in America. These folks certainly don’t. But you should’ve tuned in just to mock ELV and his omnipresent white suit.
