Pentagon Channel features military chef competition

National Public Radio recently aired an episode about the Pentagon Channel’s cooking show called The Grill Sergents. The show is currently in its third season.

According to the Pentagon Channel website:

The Grill Sergeants…is a weekly, half-hour cooking show featuring some of the military’s top chefs as they guide viewers through step-by-step menu preparation, along with important nutrition and food safety tips.

The current season is filming at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y. Sgt. First Class Brad Turner is the star of the show and, according to NPR, started his military chef career at Fort Dix, N.J. before serving his first tour in Korea. Now it appears he’s going to put his time in Korea to good use. NPR says,

The eight new episodes they are filming for the fall season are focused on a different country’s cuisine. On a recent day, they were cooking Indian, Korean and Mexican cuisines.

The Grill Sergeants airs every Monday at 1200 ET. How can you get the Pentagon channel on your TV if you live in the USA? According to the Pentagon Channel website,

The Pentagon Channel is free, in the public domain, and accessible 24/7 to all U.S. cable and satellite providers. There is no charge asked or required to provide this valuable service to your military audience.
