The Chew: May 15 2013
Continuing with May 14 2013’s focus on sweets, The Chew May 15 2013 will be bringing us a coconut and cornflake fried ice cream from Carla Hall and co-host Chef Curtis Stone. Meanwhile, Chew correspondent Jason Roberts will visit the Herr’s Potato Chip Factory in Nottingham, Pennsylvania.
Curtis Stone Fried Ice Cream
Born in Melbourne, Australia, Curtis Stone earned himself the nickname “The Quiet Terminator” by fans after his performance on The Celebrity Apprentice 3. After majoring in business at university, Curtis Stone pursued a cooking career where he cooked at some of the finest restaurants in Australia and London before cooking under celebrity chef Marco Pierre White. The two later went on to own the London Steakhouse Company.
Curtis Stone has also had a pretty solid television career. He has hosted a variety of shows, such as Take Home Chef and My Restaurant Rules. In 2010, Curtis was also a judge on America’s Next Great Restaurant.
Herr’s Potato Chips
Started in 1946 by James S. Herr, Herr’s Potato Chips had a very gradual climb to success with sales averaging around $30 per week. The company started to see more success when they introduced flavored potato chips in 1958, and things really got rolling for them during the 1970’s when the snack-food industry started to take off. In the wake of the increased popularity of snack foods, Herr’s added even more snack food to their repertoire, including pretzels, tortilla chips, cheese curls, popcorn and onion rings.
As of December 2011, the company produces 15 varieties of potato chips with flavors that emphasize spiciness. Some of these include horseradish, baby back ribs, Kansas City steak, hot sauce, jalapeño and their Old Bay chips. Sold in distinctive foil packaging, these chips are hard to miss…even if you have never really heard of them.
