John Catucci is a funny man who takes his food seriously. He’s on a quest for Canada’s most delicious, mouthwatering, over-the-top comfort food. He’s visiting great joints, greasy spoons, and legendary restaurants to taste the food that made them famous and to meet the colourful characters that make them institutions. John dives into the kitchens to find out what makes these signature recipes so damn good. Health food? Not on this show, baby. Bring on the cheese, bacon and barbecue!
“I do like them, John I am, I do like green eggs and ham... especially on a pizza!” While visiting Pie in Barrie, ON, host John Catucci learns to create a storybook pizza that could only be conceived by the mind of Dr. Seuss OR chef Randy Feltis. And he even attempts to eat the most epic pie of them all – the Furious Canucker – named after Canadian champion eater, Furious Pete. At Burger Barn in Oshweken, ON, John enjoys a First Nations fry bread twist on burgers and tacos, E-I-E-I-Ooooo. Just don’t expect to see any veggie sides, ’cuz there’s no room! John’s last stop is on the west coast at Smoken Bones Cookshack in Victoria, BC. First, this little piggy has a homemade spicy coiled sausage, then this little piggy tries a saucy, sweet and beefy Sloppy Joe. And then to top it off, this little piggy has salty and sweet bacon brittle coated ice-cream that makes him go wahoo, wahoo, wahoo all the way home!
