Irrespective of its convenience, consolation and affordability, rapidly food tends to have a negative status. 3 cooks are out to improve that by celebrating the most effective quickly-food objects out there. On the TruTV show Speedy Foodies, award-profitable cooks Kristen Kish, Jeremy Ford and Justin Sutherland, who you could know greatest from exhibits like Best Chef and Iron Chef, re-create a celebrity’s most loved fast-food item and then make their individual “remix” variation of it.

“I have under no circumstances personally built curly fries, but I am with Justin below,” mentioned Major Chef winner Kish. “Arby’s seasoned curly fries are every thing to me. You will find no way in hell I can make that superior.”
