The Best Thing I Ever Ate is a show on Food Network which premiered on June 22, 2009. Originally airing as a one-time special in late 2008, the program consists of chefs and other Food Network celebrities picking out their favorite dishes in specific categories.

Opening IntroductionEdit

"People ask me, email me, Twitter me... "What's your favorite dish?" "Where do you go to eat?" "What's the best thing you've ever had?" And that's why we're here now. Not only to tell you what we love to eat. But where you can go to get it."
