STRETCH’s Eating the Enemy debuts Thursday night on Animal Planet
- Sabrina Staires
- STRETCH is getting a shot at his own show.
Man has always set out to conquer nature and drag it back to the dinner table. He has just never thought to save Mother Nature the same way. STRETCH, the owner of Grinders and recent Pitch questionnaire subject, has a new show, Eating the Enemy, which proposes that exact question: What if we could stop invasive species by eating them?
The show’s initial episodes have him traveling the country to meet with local chefs in an attempt to use local cooking techniques on species that threaten a given ecosystem. The first show looks at the Asian carp problem in Louisiana and finds the solution in Cajun cooking. Eating the Enemy premieres on Animal Planet Thursday, December 27, at 10 p.m. A second episode finds STRETCH and Texas chefs barbecuing wild boar. It airs immediately following at 10:30 p.m.
