For a long time, I considered Ted Allen of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy to be my alter-ego. With a healthy-dose of sarcasm and food love, it was love from the first time I saw him on my TV.

Since QE is long since departed from my television, the only place I had a hope of catching Ted was in his occasional Top Chef appearance and on Chopped on the Food Network.

Today I was thrilled to discover that Ted has actually also been doing a show for Food Network called “Food Detectives.” The show itself is sort of a “Myth-Busters” meets “Good Eats.” On the show, they investigate questions and myths about food and food prep. It’s a healthy mix of all parts nerdy, foodie and techie.

This little snippet of videos really sums up where so much of my love for Ted Allen comes from:

I am incredibly excited to catch episodes of this. I’ve missed my alter-ego.



Cristen, a New York City school teacher who loves to cook, even if she's not always amazing at it. Lives in Queens with her husband and two pit bulls. Total cheese addict. Fan of anything savory and sweet, espescially Thai food. Likes to eat seasonally. Trying to be a locavore. Learning how to explain what she likes in a red wine: dry, medium bodied with hints of fruit. If I could only have one network on my TV, it would be the Food Network. I cannot get enough of competitive cooking shows like Top Chef and Iron Chef. I adore Anthony Bourdain more than I probably should.
