The Hungry Detective’s Shift Starts Next Week

The Hungry DetectiveHow long until the cop references start to get on your nerves? I’m just wondering.

I don’t know about you, but I’m still suffering from symptoms related to Manthorne withdrawal. Don’t bait-and-switch me with an Iron Chef America like that ever again, Food Network. I needed my Ace fix.

On to business…

Let me tell you, there are two things bring people to TVFF.com right now: Nigella Feasts reviews and info on Chris Cognac’s new show, The Hungry Detective. It seems like everyone is eagerly anticipating the new show, which will debut on Food Network on October 17th at 10:30 pm.

We’ve mentioned before about Cognac’s online presence and his website, The Culinary Detective, but we’re in the lead up to the debut of the show, so here come the profiles and previews. Many of the questions are exactly what you would expect. (“How did you get a show?” “How did you start writing about food.”) Some of them get a little bit into his experiences as a detective in Hawthorne, California, located near Los Angeles.

WRAL.com has an interview that gives us a sneak peak into the stops that Cognac and crew will be making during the first season of the show.
A: What cities will viewers see in the first season?

Q: We are going to Boston, NYC, Las Vegas, L.A., Houston, Philly, Charleston, S.C., Atlanta, Chicago, Miami and a few others.
It sounds like a good mix of cities for the out-of-the-way food spots in which The Hungry Detective specializes. And, of course, Philly and NYC are both within a short travel of TVFF.com headquarters, so we expect to get some “news you can use” from the show.

We are disappointed that he won’t be recommending any good Chinese food in LA, though, telling us to, “Forget it, Jake. It’s Chinatown.”

OK – that was bad – we promise no more cop jokes.
