The 519 has a new food show, and it’s awesome

Two Waterloo Region boys are putting their love of The KW’s food scene on film, and it’s shaping up to be a little different.


Restaurateur Nick Benninger, owner of multiple restaurants, including Feast On Certified Taco Farm, and filmmaker Taylor Jackson, launched their online show “Nick and Taylor Make a Food Show” earlier this week to a rowdy crowd at the Twin Princess Theatre in Waterloo.

So what’s in store for hungry viewers? Well, considering they describe themselves as ‘the hosts that nobody asked for’, you know it’s all going to be a little ridiculous and a lot hilarious; and really, isn’t that what good TV is all about?

Watch Taylor fumble his way through kitchens (he’s got next to no foodservice experience) with the help of Nick and his industry friends. Together, they make their way across the region, explore the ingredients that make is so special and visit some of most celebrated spots (READ: Pepe’s Pizza for Munchie Subs).

They’ve got eight or so episodes in the works for Season 1, including episodes dedicated to some of our favorite spots in the area. You can watch Nick & Taylor devour BBQ at The Lancaster Smokehouse in episode two; or, in episode three see them stuck in the mud with the forager from The Bruce Hotel.

Check out the trailer below.
