Cooking Channel's Eat Street to Film Palate Party at Funky Buddha Brewery

Eat Street, the Cooking Channel show that highlights the best food on wheels is returning to south Florida to shoot some food trucks.

We know our trucks are high quality, but we also suspect the fact that the production crew is from Canada has something to do with their filming around Florida in January.

This weekend, the crew is in Orlando, filming for a few days before heading south to Funky Buddha on Friday, January 17 to film Palate Party for a future episode.

The show will spotlight celebrity chef and truck owner, Robyn Almodovar and her mobile creations, but also looks for food truck fans to share their culinary obsessions on camera.

If you're looking for your five minutes of fame (or just want to grab dinner and watch the action), get there around 6 p.m., grab a Hop Gun and enjoy the show!

Chef Almodovar's planned menu items include her chicken and waffles, served with maple syrup and Fiery Fairy sauce; crab cake sliders with garlic aioli and housemade sweet chili tomato jam; mushroom risotto balls, served with Sunday's gravy; and deep-fried bread pudding. Because the only way to make bread pudding even more fabulous is to deep fry it (of course)!

If you're in the Miami area, Eat Street is filming Il Fiorentino food truck at J. Wakefield Brewing (120 NW 24th St.) on Saturday, January 18, starting at noon.
