So many of us grew up eating traditional foods that taste delicious, but, let’s face it, are full of calories, carbs, and fat.” So when the chance came to participate in a taping of Flip My Food in Arlington’s Historic Depot Square, Wiseman jumped at it. After all, it’s right outside her front door. As part of the taping, Wiseman will lead Chef Jeff, Flip My Food’s host, in a Bootcamp class and then join him for a cooking demonstration. Flip My Food is a nationally-syndicated show that features celebrity chef Jeff Henderson recreating a dish to make it healthier, while keeping all the flavor of the original. The Arlington taping will also West Tennessee Veterans Home Receives Grants feature Devan Patel, owner of Brendalay Grill, located just off Depot Square on Quintard Street as Chef Jeff “flips” one of his dishes. “We submitted four items off of our menu,” Patel explains, “but we don’t yet know which one Chef Jeff will make over. They are all best sellers—and delicious—but not something you’d order if you were looking to lose weight.” Patel adds that Brendalay already offers a variety of healthy options. The taping of Flip My Food is part of the Town of Arlington’s Tennessee Downtowns project, designed to promote the historic district. The public is invited to view the taping, which will begin at 8:00 a.m. on November 16.
