Philadelphia native and spitfire Clara Corrado, 94, has triplet great-grandsons in the Air Force.

CHUCK'S EAT THE STREET: OCTOBER 3, 2013
"Motor City Meals"
Thursday, October 3rd at
10:00pm ET | 7:00pm PT
Everybody loves a comeback story, and Detroit has one of the best. The city that gave us Motown and muscle cars also has people with grit, pride, and food traditions they stick with through thick and thin. To find them, Chuck Hughes follows Michigan Avenue to Slow’s Bar-B-Q where Chef Brian Perrone pairs smoked St. Louis ribs with potato salad. At Hygrade Deli, Stuart Litt teaches Chuck about the art of meat with a triple-decker roast beef sandwich, aka the “Packing House.” At La Pita, Chef Hassan Hamid introduces Chuck to Lebanese home cooking with a dish called Melokhieh, made with Egyptian mallow leaves. Then, he hitches a ride with Brenda Matthews who distributes fresh produce throughout city neighborhoods by way of a mobile market called Peaches and Greens. Finally, Chuck cooks up a Motown classic: a grilled bologna sandwich with a “smosh” of potato chips, with Chef Ariel Millan at Mercury Burger Bar.
Host, Cris Nannarone
In each episode of Best in Chow, host Cris Nannarone, a veteran road warrior and standup comedian, scours restaurants, diners, food trucks and everything in between, to find the best burger, pizza or taco. It’s a quest to find the top three contenders who will ultimately go to battle. Nannarone learns their trade secrets and discovers if their dish has what it takes to win the war.
