Watch the Rev Run’s Sunday Suppers’ Premiere Online

Rev Run has a mission to bring all his kids who have moved away from home back to the dinner table — and he’s using food as bait. On last night’s Season 2 premiere of Rev Run’s Sunday Suppers, Rev had been dreaming about his favorite bait: pizza. Naturally, he decided to bake up his first pie. In order to do it right, he spent time at his local pizzeria to pick up some tips. Watch the full episode after the jump (no cable provider required).

All Men Must Dine: A Game of Thrones Pop-Up Restaurant

Winter has come. And it feels like it could last a generation. There are at least two ways to feel better about it, apart from stumbling upon a stockpile of dragonglass. You can spend it chomping down comforting meals like classic casseroles, mac and cheese, steaming soups and stews, and nostalgic recipes like Mom used to make. (We can help with that.) Alternatively, you can try to win tickets to a Game of Thrones-themed pop up in London taking place between February 13 and 15. HBO is setting up the restaurant — styled to feel like a secret Small Council meeting in King’s Landing — to promote the show’s 4th season coming out on DVD and Blu-ray. We expect it lets you enjoy all the thrills of consuming poached veal tongue without the hazards of poisonous wine or a sword to the gut. The sweepstakes is running now, but you must be older than 18 and be a permanent UK resident (is that in Ulthos?)

Deep-Fried Mac & Grilled Cheese Sandwiches: Comfort Food on Comfort Food Action


Matt “Fidel Gastro” Basile, chef and owner of Toronto’s Lisa Marie, is an authority on food experimentation and street food (closely related disciplines). He earned his de facto street food PhD by touring the United States and studying the ways food trucks, pop ups, food carts and food stands make incredible dishes without industrial or even conventional kitchens. (His journey, by the way, is chronicled in Rebel Without a Kitchen, our new show premiering Tuesday, January 27 at 10pm ET).

This webisode from the show is a pretty good example of his creativity at work. He brought Compete to Eat host Jo Lusted over to his kitchen to combine her two favorite comforts: mac & cheese and grilled cheese into one game-changing sandwich. Then he deep-fried it. This is what that looks like in action:

Our Food Predictions for 2015

Food Network Kitchen have a pretty good handle on the trends that will shape what you order, eat, watch and read in the new year. Here are their predictions:

1. More Love-Child Snacks: 2014 saw the unholy couplings of brands that spawned Dewitos (Doritos-flavored Mountain Dew), cappuccino-flavored Lay’s, pumpkin pie-flavored Pringles and more — and that was just for chips.   In 2015 expect more collisions of sweet and salty, bitter and befuddling, like candy bar-flavored sodas and other flavors that you can’t find in nature

2. Easy Meal Customization:  Forget fussy fixed menus.  In 2015 expect more curated mix-and-match fast-casual joints, smaller menus at mid-range restaurants and family-style feasts at high-end places.

3. More Drinking, Less Chewing: 2015’s must-have utensil is a cup. Whether they’re filled with green juice, fruit smoothies or full-on sippable meal replacements, people want their protein, vitamins and minerals on the go and on the double.

Look out for even more squeezable kids’ fruit pouches, high-end blenders making juicing mass, bone broth becoming the new kale smoothie, butter coffee and DIY Soylent.

4.  Don’t Be Anti Bacteria:  Our culture is really into cultures — fermented and probiotic foods like kombucha, kefir, kimchi and miso — that support healthy gut bacteria.

In 2015 watch for a bounty of fermented pickles and pickle juice; sauerkraut; savory yogurt; cultured butter and buttermilk; kefir grains and kombucha; fermented sausages (salami, Thai sour sausages); and kvass.

Get the rest of our 2015 food trends and predictions.
