From a media release:
This spring, Food Network Canada takes viewers on a one-of-a-kind food adventure across North America in the new Canadian original series from Corus Studios, Big Food Bucket List (14x30min). Fan-favourite host and comedian John Catucci (You Gotta Eat Here!) takes viewers along as he checks the most buzz-worthy, crazy, delicious food and must-see culinary stops off his bucket list. Big Food Bucket List premieres Friday, May 24 at 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on Food Network Canada.
Viewers know John Catucci from his five seasons as host of the Food Network Canada hit series, You Gotta Eat Here!. Now heâ€™s back for another helping of over-the-top, delicious food, but this time around, heâ€™s on mission to find highly-recommended favourites to check off his Big Food Bucket List. Each episode, John visits three restaurants across North America and tries their must-eat meals. Then he hits the kitchen to lend a hand and learn how the chefs make their mind-blowing creations.
In the premiere back-to-back episodes, â€œRolling in the Deep Dishâ€ and â€œMore Than Meats the Eyeâ€, airing May 24 at 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT, John dives into the original deep dish pizza in Chicago, Ill. and learns how to make a mile-high pizza pie. In Toronto, Ont., heâ€™s off to feast on a burger with a sweet pineapple bun and jerk lobster fit for a king at a spectacular Jamaican-Chinese joint. Then John visits Louisville, Ky. to try out some truly authentic Kentucky fried chicken at a world-famous historic location before heading to Boston, Mass. to dig into the ultimate surf and turf burger topped with a juicy lobster tail, as well as mind-blowing fried lobster and waffles.
This season, John will try drool-worthy dishes that include an Instagram-famous, ooey-gooey spaghetti grilled cheese from Irvine, Calif., seared scallops straight from the sea in Halifax, N.S., hand-rolled pasta perfection in Vancouver, B.C., and authentic New Orleans, La. fried chicken said to be BeyoncÃ©â€™s favourite. John also satisfies his sweet tooth with treats like authentic New Orleans Bananas Foster, sinfully delicious hazelnut chocolate French toast from Calgary, Atla., and fluffy blueberry pancakes from a Nova Scotian sugar shack. Along the way, John also takes part in some unforgettable food adventures including a decadent medieval feast where no forks are allowed, learning the tricks of the trade at an apple orchard, getting smoked meat lessons from a pit master, and venturing to an authentic Canadian sugar shack.
Tourism Nova Scotia joins as a sponsor for three episodes, providing John with restaurant recommendations for bucket list-worthy dishes that highlight the provinceâ€™s rich culture and fresh and local way of life.
Big Food Bucket List is produced by Lone Eagle Entertainment in association with Corus Studios for Food Network Canada.

Iâ€™m so happy he is back……Iâ€™m still watching You Gotta Eat Here……canâ€™t wait to see his new show and lol the adventures…… I
Am so looking forward to Big Food Bucket List. Still watching You Gotta Eat Here. A great Canadian food show and John is a great host.
I was watching You Gotta Eat Here Saturday and thinking I wonder where he is and what he is doing. I love that show. Then that night I seen commercial for new show I am so happy that he is coming back to TV. I have marked it on my calendar.
Once again a great idea but the wrong host. Catucci knows absolutely zero about food. I wonder if he has found other words besides” thats fantastic” or “thats so yummy” to describe food.
I think he should come to Lacombe to Cilantro and chive and have one of their ceasar that eats like a meal. He would love it. http://Www.cilantroandclive.ca. All the food is great.
Don’t look now but it’s the same show as You Gotta Eat Here but with a different name!
He’s still wearing his plaid shirts for crying out loud!
Focus on Canadian food cuz I don’t believe anyone here cares about a restaurant in del Boca Vistas food.
Too many food shows showcasing the states. We need more Canadian food shows
