Premieres with double episodes on Saturday, July 21
This summer, longtime friends and passionate food lovers Mark Anderson and Ryan Fey embark on the ultimate "Comfort Food Tour" to discover the most mouthwatering and soul-satisfying dishes across the country. Eating their way from destination to destination, they will try it all from juicy burgers that drip down your arm, to homemade cheesy lasagna that makes you feel at home, to sweet-and-savory soul food that will make you want to lick your plate.
Their hunt for the best comfort food kicks-off Saturday, July 21 (8 p.m. ET), with a second, new serving at 8:30 p.m.
"Audiences have come to trust Mark and Fey's palates and abilities to discover the most outrageous and over-the-top dishes in the country, making them the perfect guides for this deliciously indulgent 'Comfort Food Tour,' " said Courtney White, general manager and executive vice president, programming, Food Network and HGTV. "Their sense of humor and witty banter as they playfully poke fun at each other adds another layer of fun to this epic trip that is sure to entertain."
On the premiere on Saturday, July 21, it is all about ooey-gooey, delicious comfort foods as Mark and Fey head to Chicago for the epitome of Italian comfort: homemade cheesy lasagna. At Bacchanalia, a female family-run restaurant, the duo learns the secret to making impossibly rich and creamy lasagna, without any ricotta cheese. Then, they end the meal on a high note with tiramisu filled with mascarpone custard. Next, they head south to Turnhouse Grill in Charlotte, North Carolina, for perfect pork chops, made with homemade apple butter that adds a sweet, complementary flavor to the dish. The sweetness continues with a sinful, salted caramel apple bread pudding so good it will make you sing. To round out this trip, Mark and Fey meet up with Eddie Jackson at his outdoor eatery, The Rosehill Beer Garden, in Cypress, Texas, where he brings eclectic food trucks together serving up classic comfort foods with unique twists from around the globe.
Hungry for more? At 8:30 p.m., Mark and Fey pay a visit to Ninfas, a smokin' hot Tex-Mex joint in Houston that's home to the very first fajita served in America. They agree this sizzling showstopper is worth its weight in gold. Then, it is a burger throw down at Moo and Brew in Charlotte. There the duo not only eats delicious burgers, but also makes its very own burger surprise that earns a spot on the menu. Completing the comfort food trifecta, the guys hit up Azucar, a one-of-a-kind ice cream shop in Miami serving up mouthwatering rum-soaked cake topped with homemade Cuban ice cream.
