More Flyover Love

“There’s no place like home.” – Dorothy

So a couple months ago I posted about how pleased I was that the show “No Reservations” was featuring both a French bistro in Des Moines, as well as a tiny, remarkable meat locker in Jewel, Iowa.

But it was not to be. To the cutting room floor.

Anthony Bourdain, I think you’re great.  But seriously, editing out Iowa and keeping Texas in your “Heartland” episode.  That I cannot overlook.  Everyone knows Texas is not the Midwest; Texas is Texas.  (shakes head)

BUT- like so many things in life, food television karma is cyclical.

TONITE: Man vs. Food airs an episode set smack in the middle of Flyover Country.  And something tells me that Adam Richman will have an appreciation for local flavor that Bourdain obviously did not. Tune in tonight on the Travel Channel. Check out the full article here: Man vs. Food

Back tomorrow with reviews and a nostalgic French recipe.  Until then…
