Ted Allen (GSAS '90), Food Detective



We were thrilled to learn that Ted Allen's new series, Food Detectives will premier on The Food Network on July 29th.

"The half-hour, primetime show mixes a healthy dose of humor with a wealth of fascinating factoids. Aided by willing culinary techs and the brains from Popular Science magazine, the series will conduct experiments to find the truth behind the most interesting food myths and questions. Ted and his team will dig deep to answer such questions as: Does it really take seven years for gum to digest in your stomach? Is the five-second rule true? Can an "apple a day" really keep the doctor away? Viewers can also get in on the fun by submitting their most puzzling food conundrums for potential show experiments"

If you want to learn more about this new show and see what else Ted is up to, check out his website. He keeps a great blog which even features some great recipes. Spicy grapefruit margaritas anyone?
