Throwback Thursday-Man v. Food (2008-Present)

When it comes to food and eating, we all know that it is time to stop when our stomachs are full. But what happens we are challenged to eat well after our stomachs have told us that they are full?

Man v. Food (2008-Present) originally aired on the Travel Channel before moving to the Cooking Channel three years ago. Hosted first by Adam Richman and then by Casey Webb, the show profiles different restaurants with extreme and unique dishes on the menu. The challenge is to completely consume the dish, sometimes within a limited amount of time.

This show is a joy to watch. Not just for the huge meals that fill you up just by looking at them, but for the challenge the host takes up to finish the meal.

I recommend it.

Flashback Friday: Food Paradise (2007-2018)

A good meal is more than physical nourishment. It is a pleasurable experience that lingers in our memories long after the meal is done. Especially when we are on vacation and eating something that we normally would not eat at home.

Food Paradise aired on both Travel Channel and then on Food Network from 2007-2018. Each episode focuses on a different type of food, introducing the audience to mouth watering dishes from different restaurants across the country.

I’m not a foodie, but my mouth frequently drops when I watch this program. The dishes presented to the audience are nothing short of amazing. Depending on one’s food tastes, one might be tempted to take a trip to wherever the restaurant is located to try the dish they saw on television.

I recommend it.
