With all the hullabaloo over at the Food Network, I was interested to see this press release about Pat and Gina Neely. The couple own and operate several famous Bar-B-Que joints in Memphis and Nashville, and are now taking their recipes into Food Network's kitchens. In their new show Down Home With the Neelys, Pat and Gina will share their secrets for ribs, spaghetti, shortcake, and more.
I haven't seen an episode yet — they begin on Saturday, Feb. 2 — but I imagine it's going to be similar to the rest of the Food Network's kitchen shows. Yet no matter how formulaic, I am curious to see how theirs will turn out. It's nice to see such a cute couple cooking together. Plus, I'm glad to see a little more diversity on Food Network — you have to admit they're skewing awfully white these days. Also, did I mention I love bbq? I can't imagine that their recipes are going to be wonderfully healthy, but if they taste great, that's okay with me!
So how about you? Will you be tuning in?
