More on Art Smith’s Craving Comfort: Donuts, Burgers, Mac ‘n Cheese, and More

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?
