It seems television can’t get enough of Iowa!
“Man Fire Food” is the latest cooking show to spotlight the Hawkeye State. “Man Fire Food” airs on the Cooking Channel.
According to the show description, “Man Fire Food” features the inventive ways Americans cook with fire. From small campfires to creative custom-made grills and smokers, the show features home cooks, pitmasters, and chefs who are fascinated by fire and food.
The smoke signals take host Roger Mooking across the country, including the American South for different styles of regional barbecue, the Pacific Northwest for a tribal salmon bake, and New England for a unique seafood feast.
Mooking visited Iowa City to check out Chef Kurt Friese’s “Lambapalooza.”
“Lambapalooza” features a whole lamb cooked on an unusual rotisserie he built in his backyard. Lamb from a local farm is stuffed with aromatics and cooked over a fire throughout the day, and potatoes harvested that morning are baked directly in the coals.
The episode will air at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27.
