State Plate with Taylor Hicks (INSP) – Starts 21st October – Renewed
Culinary travel show where musician, host & Paul Hollywood look-a-like Taylor Hicks, sets out to visit all 50 US states and create a full menu from dishes that are local to the area.
In each ep he visits a specific state, then heads off to towns where famed local dishes are known to originate from, and then chats to the folks that make it, while finding out how the dish is created.
After visiting the places on his list, Taylor then goes through what the state menu would look like. For a cooking/travel show it’s not the most interesting pieces or TV, especially with the host coming across pretty awkwardly whenever he has to either talk to people, or describe the food.
