Food Wars with Camille Ford
For months now we’ve been seeing the promos for the Travel Channel’s newest food-oriented travel show, Food Wars. You know the ones, they usually feature two patrons in a bar arguing over who has the best this or the tastiest that. And of course there are all of those cut-ins of the saucy hostess Camille Ford as she wrangles the combatants into something resembling controlled frenzy.
Food Wars is a concept that is long overdue. So what is that concept? Here’s how the Travel Channel’s site describes it, “There’s a debate brewing across the country, and it’s taking place in Everytown, USA, with legions of loyal fans passionately defending the local eateries and the iconic dishes that make their towns famous. From Detroit’s hot dog war — Lafayette’s vs. American Coney Island’s — to one of the most famous battles in the country — the Philly cheesesteak war between Pat’s and Geno’s — it’s time to end these rivalries once and for all as Travel Channel presents Food Wars.”
Hostess Camille Ford has a sultry look and a sexy tomboy personality that makes you think she’d be fun to knock back shots or watch the game with. And while Ford isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty she has a polished elegance that suggests her star is just beginning to shine. Her dreamy eyes and strong cheek bones give her an exotic look reminiscent of raven haired starlets like Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox.
The premiere of Food Wars is a two-episode event that pits the originator of the Buffalo Hot Wing, Anchor Bar and newcomer Duff’s for the crown as Buffalo’s best hot wing. Following that, Camille heads to Chi-town for a battle for the city’s best Italian Beef Sandwich between Al’s Beef and Mr. Beef. A panelists of locals will serve as judges in the blind taste test that will settle the debate forever.
Food Wars premieres Tuesday, March 9, at 10 E/P on the Travel Channel.
