Food Network Sets Sights On Competitive Pickling

Food Network, the cable channel that has found success turning a show about making desserts into a no-holds-barred grudge match, is about to unveil its latest competitive food preparation program. Let's Make a Dill premieres this Thursday at 9 P.M. / 8 P.M. Central. The new series will be hosted by Food Network star Alton Brown.

"I'm thrilled to be the emcee of the free world's first competitive pickling program," said Brown in an interview on the Let's Make a Dill set. "There was that short-lived series that aired on Soviet television back in the early eighties, You Must Find Something to Brine or You Will Face the Consequences, but our show is not a rip-off of that one. We've got a distinctly American vibe and no firing squad."

Regular segments on the show will feature Brown describing one of the 28 varieties of vinegar and explaining why you're dumb for not knowing how it's different from the other 27. There are also plans for a promotional crossover with Food Network's Iron Chef America in which that show's theme ingredient will be an item that was produced on Let's Make a Dill.

The first three episodes of the new series are scheduled to feature, in order, cucumbers, peppers, and cucumbers again.
