Ted Allen's New Show on The Food Network

ooroger | Jul 21, 200810:54 AM     31

Last night I caught a couple of promos for Ted Allen's new show, soon to be broadcast on The Food Network. It would appear that the theme is "answering your questions about food through science", which naturally brings Good Eats to mind.

While Ted is certainly one of the more intelligent foodies around, I was surprised that his show would go in that direction.

Firstly, when I have questions about food, they tend to be about how to make something, not what particles comprise it. Not sure how many TFN regulars really care for yet another show on the logistics of food.

Secondly, while his past experience has been centered on demystifying food (for the benefit of men on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) I would have thought that his fun personality would be better suited to reprising that kind of role--helping novices get to grips with interesting cuisine--or something on wine; varietals, flavors, uses, etc.
