Duff Returns to Food Network on a Sugar High
The only pastry-oriented show I have ever really liked was Ace of Cakes. Sadly it went off the air a few months ago. Well Duff is back. On August 8th Food Network premieres his new food/travel vehicle Sugar High. I wonder if this is to replace Adam Gertler’s Kind in a Candy Store or if there is enough of a demand for dessert-programming to warrant another show. I’d kill a drifter if it took the place of Cupcake Wars or Tough Cookies. Food for thought. Here’s the 411 from the Food Network:
Duff Goldman, best known as the pastry mastermind behind the popular Food Network show, Ace of Cakes, is exploring a sugary curiosity. His new show, Sugar High, takes him on a cross-country trek to capture the sweet secrets and tasty techniques that keep the cookies from crumbling in the top bakeries around the nation. Premiering August 8, this six-episode summer feature will showcase the best sweet spots. From diners and curbside snow-cone machines to food carts and boutique bakeries, Duff will prove that decadent desserts are anything but ordinary.
Follow Duff as he stops for chilled bread pudding on the Venice boardwalk in California, pull up a seat at a roadhouse in Dallas for s’mores and have a slice of apple strudel in Chicago that is reminiscent of something you’d get in Europe. He also returns to down-home style with traditional rice pudding at a dessert boutique in Philadelphia.
Tune in: Monday, August 8 at 10:30 p.m. Eastern/ 9:30 p.m. Central
