From the creators of the Food Network, the Cooking Channel l just launched on Memorial Day this year. The focus is on instruction rather than pure foodie entertainment, and Food Network stars like Flay and Lagasse will be there to demystify popular but intimidating cuisine, visit the world’s most extreme restaurants, follow food geeks as they invent outrageous solutions to their cravings and recapture classics like Julia Child.
Now not only are they teaching you how to cook, but they're giving you free ice cream! They just kicked off a nationwide tour, which pulls into Atlanta on Saturday, July 17. One of the network’s newest stars Roger Mooking, host of Everyday Exotic, will be at Jake's Ice Cream (www.jakesicecream.com) at East Lake Farmers Market to serve up free ice cream to fans from 11am-1pm. The truck and the free ice cream will arrive at 9 am if you're looking for breakfast dessert!
So who is this Roger Mooking character? He's the host of the new Cooking Channel program: Everyday Exotic. Roger is currently Executive Chef/Co - Owner of Kultura Social Dining and Nyood Restaurant in downtown Toronto, where he has earned a reputation as one of the city's premiere chefs. He is also the recording artist and creator of the CD Soul Food, a food and music project released by Warner Music.
On Everyday Exotic Roger explores exotic ingredients and incorporates them into everyday cooking. In each episode Roger focuses on one distinctive seasoning or ingredient–and explores its provocative palate.
