Celebrity chef Chuck Hughes is launching a new series, Chuck's Eat the Street, on October 9 on The Cooking Channel. The concept of the show consists of a camera crew following Hughes along one very restaurant-heavy street in different food-touristy towns, and eating stuff. It looks like Mr. Hughes & Co. picked Walnut Street in downtown Philly to be the subject of the premiere episode.
Hughes makes stops for pickled watermelon and poutine at Square Peg; traditional and veggie meatballs from Marabella Meatball Co.; hanger steak and babaganoush from Zahav; and gets some insider info on the secret ingredients that make up Philly's favorite gelato at Capogiro.
