Despite its comfort, comfort and affordability, quick food tends to possess a bad reputation. Three culinary chefs are out to modify that by celebrating the particular best fast-food items away there. On the TruTV show Fast Foodies award-winning culinary chefs Kristen Kish, Jeremy Ford and Justin Sutherland, who you might understand best from shows such as Top Chef and Iron Chef, re-create a celebrity’s favorite fast-food item and then create their own “remix” edition of it.

For instance, in one episode acting professional and comedian Bobbie Lee stocks that his favorite fast-food item is the Sausage Egg McMuffin from McDonalds. The three chefs first create the breakfast sandwich because authentically as possible, and after that each serves the comic a Sausage Egg McMuffin remix dish. Kish made ricotta raviolo with prosciutto. Ford served up an ovum yolk brioche with gravy. And Sutherland prepared soft scrambled eggs with maple Mornay.

Unlike other competitive foods shows, Fast Foodies isn’t aggressive. The chefs and the particular celebrity guests appear to possess an absolute blast. That fun was on complete display when Kish, Ford and Sutherland joined myself on CNET’s I’m So Obsessed podcast. They told me the particular show works well mainly because they can’t hide. The cameras pick up almost everything they do and state, that is often very humorous.

“In some of the particular episodes, there’s items that these people [TruTv] air that usually shouldn’t have been shown,” said Kish. “It’s almost like your blooper reel. I don’t believe we paid attention, which usually is why it functions so well.”

Featured fast-food items run the range from pizza and hamburgers to fried chicken plus fried fish sandwiches. Despite the enormous variety of much loved fast-food items available, Kish and Sutherland agree that will Arby’s has two products that don’t need enhancing.

“I don’t think will be certainly anything better than a good Arby’s Beef N’ Cheddar,” said Iron Chef winner Sutherland. “If it showed upward on Fast Foodies, I’d simply put it right back again within the plate, because it can perfect.”

“I’ve never individually made curly fries, yet I’m with Justin right here,” said Top Chef champion Kish. “Arby’s seasoned ugly fries are everything in order to me. There’s no method in hell I could create that better.”

On the particular other hand, Ford, the Top Chef winner, says there isn’t any fast-food item that’s untouchable.
