Plot Synopsis

Food Network stars and celebrity chefs reveal their favorite foods and recipes, featuring dishes they eat in their free time -- when they're paying. THE BEST THING I EVER ATE is the ultimate guide to the country's most-amazing meals, eats and treats as told by the pros who spend their lives obsessing over food. Each episode has its own theme: BBQ; fried foods; foods with bacon; and more. THE BEST THING I EVER ATE returned for a new season on Sunday, September 3, 2017 at 8pm ET/5pm PT on Cooking Channel. The season opener, "Chicago," features the Windy City, which may be famous for its architecture, but the series is dere for the food! Chicago has a deep love for Gino's deep dish pizza, and the pork rinds at Publican are some of the best ever. And who doesn't love a hot dog? The classic Chicago Dog at Weiner Circle can't be topped. And in a city where the river turns green, don't be surprised to find that some of the best chocolate is white! Season 8 premiered on Monday, December 11, 2017 at 8pm ET/5pm PT on Cooking Channel. In the season opener, "Worth the Wait," some things in life are worth standing in line for, and we're sharing the foods we think are worth the wait. Alton Brown talks up his favorite beef Wellington, while Jamika Pessoa melts over buttery biscuits. Chef Beau MacMillan says there's nothing worth waiting for more than Tratto's pasta in Phoenix, and Duff Goldman is okay with waiting in line for hours at this special hot chicken joint. After a two-month break, THE BEST THING I EVER ATE returned with new episodes on Monday, January 28, 2019 at 9pm ET/6pm PT on Cooking Channel. This new episode, "High Steaks," pays tribute to the best styles, cuts and steakhouses serving up the best steaks. Chef Jonathon Sawyer takes viewers on a trip to Dayton for a ribeye cut so incredibly, it's fit for a king. Jernard Wells travels down to Atlanta for the best of both worlds -- the sea and land -- in a surf-and-turf combo of steak and shrimp. And Duff Goldman drools over a butter steak that melts in your mouth ... like butter!
During an eight-hour marathon (8pm-4am ET/5pm-1am PT), Cooking Channel premiered the Season 10 finale of THE BEST THING I EVER ATE at 9pm ET/6pm PT. In the season ender, "In the Last Place You'd Expect," sometimes the best dishes are in the last place you'd ever expect to find them. We've scoured the globe, searched far and wide, and the hunt stops here. Alex Guarnaschelli ends the debate over where to find the best bagel -- it's in North Yarmouth, Maine! Jeff Mauro finds a game-changing falafel in the back of a jewelry store, and Geoffrey Zakarian unearths hidden Mexican treasure in Buffalo, New York.
