Three seasons of Eat It and Like It with Jesse Blanco are in the books. Our next season will premiere on September 14, 2014.
Some people see our show as a guide to local restaurants in Savannah. Others see it as a must have foodie resource. Some use it for recipes. What we are actually (in our view) is simple. Something different than you see on all the cooking/travel shows out there.
We are about the South.
There are a lot of misconceptions about Southern Cuisine. Most of the world knows us for being all about the fried chicken and collard greens. Sometimes a chef takes that old classic and gives it a modern twist. But what’s next? There is great food out there. Talented chefs doing great things and quiet, wonderful small town people turning heads as well. The common denominator is food and we are planning to find them all. Then share them with you. One bite at a time.
Our plan is to take our viewers along with us throughout the South, every season. Our show is growing and great places in Atlanta, Charleston, Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee, as well as our beloved Low Country, are going to be featured. We’re also planning a special edition of Eat It and Like It: “Drink It and Like It.” No, we aren’t going bar hopping. We are headed out in search of some of the best adult beverage stories in the South. There are plenty of great Eats in our region and some great Drinks as well. We will find them.
Where will we show up? You’ll have to tune in to find out. Whatever it is, wherever it is, we will Eat It and Like It.
You can catch Eat It and Like It every Sunday morning, at 7:30am on WSAV-TV. Best of Eat It and Like It on SGTV, Channel 8 and some of our older episodes on our You Tube Channel – which you can find here.
