The United Tastes of America! Thank you!!

September 8, 2010

To all of my fans, friends and relatives,

Your incredible non-stop support has led me to my own show. I was at the Ferry Building in San Francisco today handing out free Scream Sorbet from the Cooking Channel truck and talking about the new show. The Cooking Channel is off to a great start and I am so proud to be a part of it.

I love the name because the food on the show is not only about the diversity of America’s iconic foods but how each chef/personality puts their heart and soul into their version of our most beloved foods.

I am on a mission to get you to want to take a bite out of your screen every episode!

United Tastes of America (working title)

Premieres: Tuesday, November 16 at 9:30pm ET

Hosted by Jeffrey Saad, each episode of United Tastes of America focuses on one iconic food staple – donuts, burgers, pizza – and explores it from every angle.  The history, process, science and pop-culture significance of each item are examined, along with a look at how today’s hottest chefs are reinterpreting them in unexpected ways. Jeffrey was a leading contestant on season five of The Next Food Network Star.

Take care and thank you again!!

Eat well, Enjoy life, Be happy!

    Congratulations! I’m glad you’ve finally got a show, you deserve it 🙂 Will you be able to continue living in your California home? Hopefully you won’t need to be permanently uprooted …

    I’m very excited for your new show, and very excited to have had the chance to be interviewed by you yesterday. I knew your name, I knew your face but, since it was totlly out of context, I just couldn’t remember why. And then I realized – oh, yeah, you were my pick to win Next Food Network Star! You have so much energy and are so amazingly friendly and warm in person, I have no doubts about your success. Definitely looking forward to the show.

    Finally! I can’t believe it took someone this long to get you back on the air, where you belong. I don’t know if I get Cooking Channel, but I’ll certainly check and look forward to your new show. Congratulations, man. You deserve it.

    Congrats. Will you be doing any cooking? Better have you whippin’ up something, Saad.

    I love Fieddy’s show (or however he says his name), but there’s only so much a foodie can take of seeing restaurants. You got the chops, man. I hope they don’t just have you with a mic in sus manos.

    Big fan of your cooking. You ttttotaally got railroaded by FN; Mommy D’bacon can cook a chicken breast, ’bout it.
