Review – Eden Eats: Austin
Cooking Channel premiered their newest food/travel show, Eden Eats, this evening. Here’s how they describe it:
On Eden Eats, Eden Grinshpan arrives in Austin Texas for her 24 hour around the world food adventure. If you think you’re in for BBQ and Tex-Mex think again! Eden is invited into each kitchen and discovers how people from all over the world have re-created their lives and culture through food. From Chef Piroshka’s famous Hungarian Spaetzle for dinner at the European Bistro to Malek the baker’s Lebanese Pita making machine at 4am, every step leads to another country without a passport!
Eden is adorable, warm and knows her stuff. She should she graduated from Le Cordon Bleu: London with a “Grande Diplome” in both Pastry and Cuisine. Grinspan has made a name for herself by celebrating the traditional foods found in America’s immigrant communities on her popular blog also called Eden Eats.
Though the subject matter of her blog represents the immigrant food scene in the Five Burroughs of New York City, this special was filmed during a whirlwind 24 hour exploration of Austin, Texas, one of the most underrated food scenes in the country.
Eden Eats was successful in two different ways. First in introduced a terrific new talent in host Eden Grinshpan and it celebrates the myriad of great food to be found in the Lone Star Capital.
