Ted Allen Discovers the Answers Behind Food's Biggest Mysteries in 'Food Detectives'

Famed Culinary Expert Joins Food Network To Host New Primetime Series Premiering Tuesday, July 29th at 9pm ET/PT Featuring Experts from 'Popular Science' Magazine

NEW YORK, June 10 -- Famed culinary expert Ted Allen joins the Food Network family with the debut of his new series "Food Detectives," premiering Tuesday, July 29th at 9pm ET/PT. The half-hour primetime series explores the delicious connection between science and food, pulling back the curtain and revealing the answers to some of the most puzzling food mysteries.

"We've wanted to work with Ted for years on a series of his own and we've found a great fit in 'Food Detectives,'" said Bob Tuschman, Senior Vice President, Programming and Production for Food Network. "Not only will this show provide a wealth of interesting information for our viewers, it also gives Ted an opportunity to show off his wit and culinary knowledge."

"I'm so excited to be working with Food Network on this new series," said Allen. "It's a fantastic opportunity for me to head up my own show and I know that viewers are going to be totally engaged with the information we are discovering on 'Food Detectives'!"

"Food Detectives" mixes a healthy dose of humor with a wealth of fascinating factoids. Aided by willing culinary techs and the brains from the leading science and technology magazine Popular Science, the series will conduct experiments to find the truth behind the most interesting food myths. Ted and his team will dig deep to answer questions like: Does it really take seven years for gum to digest in your stomach? Is the five-second rule true? Can an "apple a day" really keep the doctor away? Viewers can also get in on the fun by submitting their most puzzling food conundrums for potential show experiments.
