I don’t know about you, but the Food Network (FN) is on constantly in our house.
Actually, it is usually a fight between my daughter and I for the Food Network or the Disney Channel. On the off chance she doesn’t sweep my leg and I get the remote, one of the shows I enjoy watching on FN is “The Best Thing I Ever Ate”. The show entails celebrity chef’s giving the down low on their favorite foods to eat and where to get those dishes. The show usually has a theme like breakfast, BBQ, comfort food, etc. So, I am watching the channel and see the episode of “Best Thing” coming on is all about favorite dishes with garlic……queue the teenage girl seeing Justin Bieber squeal.
Perhaps it wasn’t quite that dramatic but it is safe to say that it took me .08 seconds to hit record on the DVR. What followed was 30 minutes of pure garlic audio/visual entertainment. Given the number of chefs and restaurants featured, it would possibly be the worlds longest post if I tried to review them all at one time. So, I will do a separate post for each chef/restaurant and give you the 411 on their details.
