Set to join CNN's Sunday-night primetime lineup in early 2013, the still unnamed broadcast will create "a signature showcase for the network’s coverage of food and travel," according to a press release. "The show will be shot on location and examine cultures from around the world through their food and dining and travel rituals."

Both agreed that there was a bizarre focus on a corporate customer-base for New York’s food trucks. “[You] park your truck in front of some corporate headquarters at lunch and they’ll line up," Huang said. "What’s that? Only in New York. Everybody else’s food scene’s for like the street kids, you know? Ours are for corporate America.”(2)
