Season 2

In the season premiere Chuck visits Aspen, known for being a swanky winter hangout; but the local ranchers and miners who helped build the city are still here and they eat on Hopkins Avenue. A snowball's throw from the slopes, rodeo rider turned chef Kathleen Crook serves Chuck a massive 30-ounce steak with a big rib-bone handle called the Tomahawk. At Ute City, named for the original Ute Indians of the region, Chuck meets Chef Rob McClanahan, as he gets a lesson on how to grill Duck a la Plancha. And after stopping in at Sarah Helsley's Cheese Shop, Chuck indulges in fondue, the ultimate post-ski meal, and finds dessert at Creperie du Village, a cozy eatery where Chef Jason DeBacker makes a sweet crepe with a jaw-breaking German name: The Schokoladepalatschinke.

Over the course of the season Chuck also visits the little neighborhood of Bishop Arts, which is the center of the best food scene in Dallas; there Chuck learns how to use a hand-cranked machine to churn out bigoli pasta that accompanies duck ragout. In San Antonio, Chuck takes a walk down a quirky street called St. Mary's, as he witnesses a high-end take on a Texas football favorite, Frito pie, by smothering a po'boy with smoked pork chili, jalapeño mayo, cheddar, and corn chips. And in Santa Fe, New Mexico, one of America's oldest cities is waiting for Chuck to try every bite he can taste, as he learns about its history and native culture. Other cities include Washington, D.C.; Charleston, S.C.; The Bronx, N.Y.; and Detroit, Mich.
