Last year, FN Dish introduced you to a new series on Cooking Channel called Classy Ladies. For 2013, they’re shaking things up even more with a familiar Food Network face, Adam Gertler (Food Network Star and Kid in a Candy Store), in Food Bites.

Taste test the best (and worst) of food television with him every Thursday as he takes his steak knife to the world of food. Nothing’s off-limits and everything’s served up with a dash of humor.

What does a cigarette and vodka have to do with a bologna volcano? Find out on the latest episode of Food Bites, where Adam explores pork-related food crimes, pickles with Kelsey Nixon, visits with the Bare Nekked Chef and, for good measure, also talks with the Nearly Naked Chef (click the play button above to watch).

So Adam Gertler returned to Food Network this week with a new show entitled, Will Work For Food [Mondays at 8:30pm/7:30c]. Adam is exposed to a pretty wild world of food jobs which made us wonder… Which Food (job) Have You Worked For?

Here’s a quick round-up from The FN Dish staffers:

* Ice cream bicycle boy — bike with mini-freezer on the front
* Pea picker — endless hours in the sun for pennies per pod
* Amusement Park ‘Fried Dough” Fryer
* Candy Girl at the first multiplex theater in Long Island
* Hostess for uppity tourist trap in East Hampton
* Bacon cook in Vermont — ah, grease in the hair
* DC Nightlife Critic — countless brewery tours (& tastes)
* Dude Ranch Cook — quit over Alan Jackson brouhaha

We want to hear yours… Spill it!!
