America is definitely hungry for cooking shows.
There’s something about them that keeps us tuning in each week (On-air food fights? Drama? Outsized personalities? All of the above?)
Shows like Cupcake Wars
, Top Chef Just Desserts
and The Great Food Truck Race
are especially intriguing – it’s fun to see cooking shows get beyond the “one chef in front of the camera” formula. Tempers flare and creativity soars with each new cooking challenge and secret ingredient.
Here’s a street food inspired recipe for tonight’s finale of The Great Food Truck Race
– Korean BBQ Kimchi Quesadillas. This tasty mashup of Korean BBQ chicken and a Mexican quesadilla is filled with a generous amount of kimchi. It's the perfect complement to the hottest cooking shows.
