Tomorrow night, August 25th at 9 p.m., The Travel Channel is having a new episode of Man vs. Food. They are visiting the Jersey Shore! The above video is a clip from the show. Here is a description of the show from The Travel Channel:
Adam Richman, a food fanatic with a serious appetite, travels around the country taking on the most legendary food challenges. Adam has held every job in the food business and is now on a journey to explore the best eats our country has to offer. Whether it's a fourteen pound mountain pie, or an eight-patty burger, Adam is ready for the challenge.
The Jersey Shore is the ultimate summer destination--full of sun, sand, and great eats. This week, Adam visits the legendary Maruca's, on the boardwalk. Here, Adam learns about the ultimate Jersey Shore original pizza: a thin, crunchy crust with swirls of tomato sauce on top of a pound and a half of Maruca’s proprietary cheese blend. Did you know that the great chefs of Maruca’s put their pizza sauce on with a watering can? Adam explains that this pizza is a “vortex of pizza bliss”!
Next, Adam visits Hoffman's Ice Cream for a true taste of summer, and some of the best ice cream on the Jersey Shore. Adam tries Hoffman’s world famous dessert, “The Octopus”, which is made with eight scoops of homemade ice cream, eight toppings, and eight “tentacles” of whipped cream. Adam gives a few “fist pumps” to the delectable treat.
Finally, Adam goes to The Chicken or the Egg to attempt the Ludicrous Wings Challenge. With 12 jumbo wings, drenched in a sauce so spicy that the dish has defeated thousands, will Adam win food glory? The habanero extract infused sauce of this challenge is so intense, that Adam must wear gloves to protect his hands. With only 15 minutes to finish two pounds of food and push through the wing’s heat, will Adam be the fourth person ever to avoid going down in flames?
