Marcus Samuelsson Headlines TV Series "The Feed"
FYI’s new half-hour series, “The Feed,” has three distinctly opinionated hosts, sharing their take on today’s most innovative food trends.
Culinary expert Gail Simmons, superstar chef Marcus Samuelsson, and comedian and food writer Max Silvestri anchor a rollicking adventure into the world of culinary and food culture in America. The six-episode series premieres Thursday, Aug. 21, at 10 p.m. Eastern on FYI.
Each episode of “The Feed” pits the combination of these three personalities against each other in unconventional food challenges that allow each competitor to show off her perspectives on the food world. Viewers are exposed to the most recent food trends as Simmons, Chef Samuelsson, and Silvestri take quirky, fun-spirited competition outside the kitchen and onto the streets of New York City.
The rivalry between each host heats up week by week as they strive to outdo the other with an outrageous and sometimes ingenious innovation. As social media is increasingly occupied with conversations about food, cooking, and culinary trends, these three will tackle the hard-hitting topics, everything from the cronut to the ramen burger.
The series encourages a new outlook on food and how society putsits own spin on everyday kitchen creations.
