As I revealed in an earlier post, the Food Network was at Le Pichet in March 2011 to film a segment about our Raclette Savoyarde. It seems that Alton Brown was at Le Pichet to dine in late 2010 and really enjoyed the raclette, and well, here we are on tv. Anyway, I just received word from the Food Channel that the episode, which is called “French Favorites” will air for the first time on Monday July 25, 2011 at 10pm PST. Reruns will no doubt follow.
As I said, the Food Network was at Le Pichet in March of 2011 and filmed for about 6 hours over the course of 2 days. Several members of the Le Pichet staff (thanks Ford!) were featured in the filming, including myself (although my hair, which was on a 6 month hiatus due to chemotherapy, was conspicuously absent). Given the amount of time I spent with the film crew, I fear that I am destined to be underwhelmed by the result, as I am told that the Le Pichet feature will only be 2 to 7 minutes long. I will be happy if I just don’t look too silly.
