As is easily deduced from the show’s title, Art Smith’s new series deals with comfort food. The foods on the docket include apple pie, donuts (which a Grub Street commenter noted includes a visit to New York’s Donut Plant), chocolate, burgers, fried chicken, mac ‘n’ cheese, and breakfast, a rep of the network told the Sun-Times.

“To me, food without a story is not that interesting,” Smith told the S-T. “I wanted to search out stuff that wasn’t overly produced but also that, when I taste it, it’s like, ‘Wow.’ ” And yes, there’s going to be a hometown segment: “I said I wouldn’t be able to go back home if we didn’t have [a Chicago stop].” We’re guessing we get the breakfast episode — Mitchell’s Original and Ann Sather, maybe?
