Oh, Canada! We know you love food and we know you love fun. We have two new shows and one returning fan favourite that will celebrate food, fun and plenty of Canada for you to sink your teeth into.
Food Truck Face Off premieres Sunday, October 12th at 8 ET/PT . Ottawa’s own Jesse Palmer—football star, former host of Recipe to Riches and ex-Bachelor, hits the road as the host visiting Toronto, Austin, Los Angeles and Miami to see which savvy food lovers have the next great food truck idea (and can maneuver a giant food truck). Robyn Almodovar, Canadian Zane Caplansky, Alpana Singh, Steak Shaprio, and Andrew Gruel decide who will be the winner to drive away with their own food truck for one year.
Carnival Eats is a deep-fried thrill ride hosted by Canadian funny man with an iron stomach, Noah Cappe. Noah heads to fairs and festivals across North America to indulge in outrageous “stunt foods” and to meet the people who make these crazy eats (and the folks who love to devour them). Carnival Eats premieres on September 5th at 9pm ET and 6pm PT.
Glazed or chocolate-dipped? Jelly or custard-filled? With sprinkles or without? Those options are for beginners. The donut makers and bakers on Donut Showdown run circles around your average donut, creating sweet (and sometimes savoury) masterpieces that could win them $10,000. Daryn Jones joins the show as the new host. Canadians David Rocco, Zane Caplansky, Maggie McKeown and Eden Grinshpan round out the judges’ table with Elizabeth Falkner, Duff Goldman and Jeff Mahin. Donut Showdown premieres with back-to-back episodes on September 8th at 9pm ET and 6pm ET.
