This is not the 1st time our metropolis has been the star of a food-relevant tv present, and it very likely is not going to be the very last, but it continue to yields some genuine Cincy pleasure when our humble house gets some significantly-deserved recognition.

Every episode in the series focuses on a single specific spot or location and what makes its culinary tradition unique.

Year 9, episode 9 aired on Monday, Feb. 1, and Zimmern explored our European-influenced dishes like pork schnitzel and goetta (the two trailing from Cincy’s German roots) and our infamous Cincinnati-fashion chili (which has ties to the city’s Greek immigrants), as nicely as Graeter’s ice cream, designed working with the French pot process.

Cooking Channel’s intro for the episode regards Cincinnati as “the swiftest increasing metropolis in the Midwest,” which is rather awesome, too. 

If you skipped the episode, you should not fret. The demonstrate will air once more at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 14 — a minor Valentine’s Day present for ya. 

Other destinations explored this season consist of the Iowa Point out Reasonable Sitka, Alaska Portland Martha’s Winery and Harlem.
