Two television crews shooting this week in Comox Valley

This week, a Courtenay restaurant will have an honour bestowed on it by You Gotta Eat Here!

It’s a catchphrase that has been spoken across the country, and this week, a Courtenay restaurant will have the honour bestowed on it by You Gotta Eat Here!

The Food Network Canada Show, hosted by comedian John Catucci, is filming part of an episode at the Mad Chef Cafe in downtown Courtenay on Wednesday and Thursday.

The show features Catucci on a quest to discover the best of Canada’s comfort food.

He visits places ranging from greasy joints to legendary restaurants to taste the food and get the story behind the food that has made them famous.

Although the show has frequented restaurants in Victoria, Nanaimo and Tofino, it has never been to the Comox Valley.

The episode is scheduled to air sometime in the new year.

Home and Garden Television will video Friday at the Black Creek home of Suzanne and Coleman Taylor.

A crew will shoot for a one-hour special hosted by Steve Patterson of the CBC show The Debaters, who performed a standup comedian act recently at the Sid Williams Theatre.

Patterson will be part of Friday’s  shoot for the program, which will profile home owners with eccentric and unconventional approaches to home repair.
