Man vs. Food – The Dagwood Sandwich Revisited

Posted by cmh gourmand on December 4, 2008


The Travel Channel has a new show called Man vs. Food. The host travels around the country profiling good food cities and taking on one of the culinary eating feats in that town.

The show came to Columbus and covered an OSU tailgate, Schmidt’s and the Thurman Burger. For the grand finale…. The Dagwood at the Ohio Deli.

The Dagwood Challenge was one of the first Columbus Underground food fieldtrips of 2008. I wrote about the Dagwood in December 2007 at about the same time the Dispatch did a story on food bloggers in Columbus, including me. The photo in that story shows me eating a Dagwood. I only ate half waiting for the photographer to get our group photo right, (I could not eat the first half, it was too soggy from being in my mouth for twenty minutes).

The Columbus episode of Man vs. Food will air on the Travel Channel, December 10th at 10:30 PM with multiple repeats over the following week.

Walker Evans from Columbus Underground put together a great documentary video of the CU Dagwood Challenge. I have to feel that that may have led the Travel Channel to our fair city.
