I’m watching 24 in 24 — Sandwich King Jeff Mauro’s new show on Food Network.
(It’s kinda like the $40 a Day series that Rachael Ray did way back when, but with less scratch.)
He’s in Cleveland in tonight’s episode, and he’s eating chili for lunch.
Now I love chili, and today’s dramatic drop in temperatures makes it sound especially good. I don’t have any chili on me, but I am really enjoying watch him eat chicken chili from Palookaville Chili in Cleveland.
But he made a curious claim during the program.
He said chili is usually the “B-film of food.” It’s canned stuff. It goes on hot dogs. It’s not the star.
I love the Sandwich King, but I consider chili to be at the top of the soup chain. At the top of the stew chain. At the top of Rachael Ray’s ‘stoup’ chain (combo soup/stew).
Chili is king. And was king long before Jeff won Food Network Star.
Let’s show it a little respect.
