I was lounging on my couch one night watching Food Network’s TV Show, “Good Eats”, when the thought suddenly hit me. I could really go for a quick and easy meal to make, but unlike Alton Brown (the shows host) I suck at cooking and had about $4 in my pocket. Then I realized the need for a college cooking show that helps college students and young professionals make fun and simple food. As well, I noticed recently there is a huge surge by colleges and young professionals in watching the food network. This would be a combo of Friends + Emeril = Cookin It, cooking for college students.
(yes I met him) The show could have a plot for half the show, such as planning for a kegger, late night cramming, hang overs and other important times in a young persons life. And the other half is the simple and fun cooking with lots of comedy. Episodes could include:
There’s definitely more to college cuisine than top ramen and beer, well hopefully. A light hearted, comical 30 minutes of television where a viewer could get a nice laugh and goods idea will be very refreshing.
Each segment would have fun little titles:
I sat back on my couch very satisfied. Alton Brown was finishing his segment on “Olive Stuffed Leg of Lamb” as I was thinking of taking out my trusty Foreman Grill. I smiled, the urban legend of collegiate cuisine can finally be put to an end.
