Food Network Launching New Health Inspection Show
The Food Network is launching a new health inspection show which debuts October 26. It's aptly called "Health Inspectors." Host Ben Vaughn, a former chef and a restaurant consultant, will visit one of the country's filthiest restaurants and try to clean it up.
Some highlights from the upcoming episodes:
Rats in the Cellar: Salud restaurant in Chicago specializes in high-end Mexican food and specialty tequila cocktails, but behind the festive exterior are many health code violations.
Renegade Pirates: The staff at the Green Burrito in New Orleans claims to have the best burritos in town, but when it comes to food safety they are struggling.
Slugs in the Walk-in: Harley's Café in Oklahoma serves all-American comfort food and has been a staple in the community for nearly 50 years. But with a recent change of ownership health code regulations have taken a back seat in this 'biker themed' diner
Recipe for Disaster: O'Donnell's, a small-town Louisiana mainstay, prides itself on its great reputation but if the staff can't get a handle on their health violations they could lose it all.
A Game of Chicken: The owner of King Vic's in Michigan has noble aspirations for his all-American restaurant but he's so consumed with building his empire that he has neglected his kitchen and is buried in health code issues.
