Tired of the same old cooking shows? Here's one with a twist. The Food Network is serving us up with some culinary expertise and comedy in their newest offering entitled Food Detectives
. Famed culinary expert Ted Allen will be hosting the show, which will premiere on Tuesday, July 29th at 9pm. Food Detectives,
a half-hour primetime series, will focus on the connection between science and good food, unraveling some of the most intriguing food mysteries ever.
"I'm so excited to be working with Food Network on this new series," Ted Allen said. "It's a fantastic opportunity for me to head up my own show and I know that viewers are going to be totally engaged with the information we are discovering on 'Food Detectives'!"
It seems that Ted Allen isn't the only one looking forward to this new show from the Food Network, as Bob Tuschman, Senior Vice President, Programming and Production for the company also expressed his joy to work with someone like Allen, the Emmy-award-winning food and wine specialist who first made an impression on the Bravo series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy
. He has also appeared as judge on Food Network's Iron Chef America
and Bravo's Top Chef
Tuschman continued to talk about the new show, saying, "Not only will this show provide a wealth of interesting information for our viewers, it also gives Ted an opportunity to show off his wit and culinary knowledge."
will also feature the men and women behind the leading science and technology magazine, Popular Science, to help perform experiments to find out the real deal when it comes to the popular food myths. In fact, Popular Science has a monthly feature entitled "The Future Now," which reports on how science does affect our everyday lives and which trends are most important in our daily living.
Likewise, Food Detectives
will take a look in science's influence on the best flavors of the world and how it has revolutionized creative cooking. Food Detectives
premieres on Tuesday, July 29th at 9pm on the Food Network.
