Ready For Our Close-Up

Over nine months ago, Cooking Channel investigative eater Noah Cappe visited the New York State Fair to tape an episode of his series Carnival Eats. NOAH WITH JIM 2As reported on State Fair Hound (Tip of the Cappe, Aug. 29, 2015), Cappe made several stops on the grounds, including an early morning visit to Fried Specialties, sampling the notorious Defibrillator.

The show featuring that encounter was scheduled to premiere on May 5, but inexplicably didn’t air.

According to the Carnival Eats website, that show will be broadcast on May 8 at 11 p.m., May 15 at 7 p.m. and May 30 at 6 p.m. Usually CE splashes some scenes from the featured event between cooking segments, also stopping to chat with patrons of the starring eateries, so don’t miss a chance to see our State Fair on national television.
