For once I’m on the ball and telling you about a food related show BEFORE it starts!!! Camp Cutthroat will be returning to the Food Network on August 24. This summer the show takes the form of Camp Cutthroat 2: Alton’s Revenge! He’s revealing a 5-week diabolical plan to do in the chef campers. Anyway, I really enjoyed last summer’s version of Camp Cutthroat. I found it even more entertaining than the usual Cutthroat Kitchen episodes. I mean, who doesn’t love summer camp and camp pranks!?!? Good times! You should check it out! I know I’ll be watching!
My husband and I have really been enjoying the new AMC series, Feed The Beast. I’m a fan of both David Schwimmer (Friends) and Jim Sturgess (Across The Universe) and they are a good combo playing childhood friends that have dreamed of opening a restaurant together. The show is a good combination of cooking, restaurant drama, mob activity, romance and sentimentality. It offers up a little bit of everything!
Without being a spoiler, Schwimmer plays a widowed sommelier who is raising his adorable young son alone. Sturgess plays a big-hearted chef with a drug problem, who is involved in questionable activities. Enter the mob! Schwimmer is trying to raise a kid in a decent environment with a buddy who is going about getting money in the wrong way.
Anyway, this is an interesting show! The characters are engaging and endearing and the action is plenty. There is a good enough amount of restaurant/kitchen/cooking activity to keep this foodie girl happy!
Check it out and let me know what you think! I think the older episodes are available on on-demand and might also be available on the AMC website.
OK, I’ll admit it! I have a problem! I’m addicted to all things cooking related. I even like to watch movies and TV shows related to cooking. I recently renewed our Hulu subscription, so I could watch their original series 11-22-63 (which I highly recommend!!!). I was cruising around Hulu and looking at the food related shows they offer and ran across Kitchen Confidential. I had heard of Anthony Bourdain’s book of the same title, but had no idea a TV series had been made based on the book. AND it stars Bradley Cooper??? Score!
This show is definitely worth your time! They only made one season, so it’s not a big time commitment. I’m surprised they didn’t make a second season, as I and my husband really enjoy this show. From what I could find online, it appears the show was battling with baseball for time slots and got lost in the shuffle.
The cast of this show is great! It is a light-hearted look at the New York culinary world and the cast members are charming and funny. Plus, if you love food, you’ll dig all the fabulous meals being created.
Anyway, if you have Hulu I strongly suggest you check out this show. It is definitely good for a laugh and Bradley Cooper is easy on the eyes! It is not for the kiddies though.
