Garlic Paradise--UPDATED

If you've been reading here for a while, you'll remember that last July and again in November Hubby Tony and I dined at Saleem's West, a local restaurant where they were taping an episode of a Travel Channel show called Food Paradise.  The garlic-themed episode was entitled, appropriately enough,  "Garlic Paradise".

In early April the restaurant posted on Facebook that the episode would air on April 24. However, a couple of days before that the station changed the schedule and put another show in the slot.  Last week I got an email about a rescheduled date...this Saturday (May 11th) at 3 p.m. Central Time.

It looks like Saleem's will be sharing the spotlight with a garlic festival and restaurants in Florida, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and California.  The show is only an hour long, so I don't know how much time each location will get.  I won't be home during the initial showing, but I'll have my DVR ready to record it.  You never know; Tony and I just might show up in the background.

Update-When I was setting up the DVR this afternoon, the Program Guide showed the show airing at 1:00.  Who knows when it will actually happen?

  1. That will be so fun to watch for yourselves!

    1. Yes, even if it's a blink-or-you'll-miss-it moment :-)

  2. I'm assuming the festival in California to be Gilroy's Garlic Fest. Every time we drive through the town, we smell the garlic that is being processed at the big plant on the east side. Most of the garlic is now grown in our valley and trucked over the Pacheco Pass to Gilroy.

  3. Fantastic, another go out for dinner excuse! :-) I recall your other posts and if memory serves me correctly the food was amazing. Keep us posted how it goes k?
