Two Nashville Favorites Featured This Month on Cooking Channel's Unique Eats

Posted By on Thu, Aug 1, 2013 at 8:53 AM

The friendly media attack on Nashville continues as two of our local favorites will be featured on the Cooking Channel this month as part of the show Unique Eats. Premiering this Sunday, Aug. 4, at 8 p.m. is an episode titled "Guilty Pleasures." It certainly does feature one of my guilty pleasures, Karl Worley's Biscuit Love food truck. The episode guide shares that Worley "uses big biscuits for hearty sweet and savory sandwiches," a fact that I can definitely attest to.

Plus Karl even shared a couple of recipes on the website for his Golden Biscuits and his Banana Jam. It's important to note that he did not give up the goods on his Family Heirloom Biscuits, which I once sampled at one of Vivek Surti's Epicurean Adventures Supper Clubs. In fact, Worley delivered the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients separately to Vivek with instructions to combine them like the super secret compound that they actually are. Good for him.

Later in the month on Sunday, Aug. 25, at 8 p.m., Unique Eats presents their "Swine" episode. Our own Pat Martin of Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint will be featured in a segment of the show. Here's the synopsis of the episode:

Americans continue to pine over all things swine. Korean restaurant Palsaik in Los Angeles serves bacon in eight different flavors. Martin's Bar-B-Q in Nashville smokes whole hog right in the center of their dining room. At Cemitas Puebla in Chicago, diners sink their teeth on quesadillas stuffed with chicharones or their signature Mexican sandwich stuffed with sliced deli ham, fried and grilled pork. New York City's The Cannibal celebrates nose-to-tail eating with their whole slow-roasted half pig's head, whipped lardo toast and boudin noir sausages.

The episodes will repeat a few times during August, but set your DVR if you can't catch them live. Consult the show's official site for airing dates and times.
