Beer sommeliers, Hallie Beaune and Christina Perozzi, a.k.a. "The Beer Chicks," know more about craft brews than most seasoned bartenders, and their love for drink hardly ends there. These authors love wine, mixed drinks, spirits, cocktails and everything food and in "Eat This, Drink That" - a one-hour Cooking Channel special - they take to the road and introduce us to folks creating brand new rules for pairing food with drink. Hallie and Christina find inspiration for shrimp and grits with absinthe on a shrimp boat in the Gulf of Mexico with a captain named "Big Sexy." In Los Angeles, they marry sweet corn ice cream with beer for a float showdown, but can their float take down candied bacon, liquid nitrogen and an illegal spice? Expect savory sweet potato cocktails and unexpected concoctions with passion fruit and coffee.
