RICK SEBAK PREPARES A FOUR-COURSE MEAL EVERY THURSDAY IN JANUARY

PITTSBURGH—Beginning January 6th, WQED-TV is serving-up one breakfast, lunch, dinner, AND dessert program each Thursday at 8 p.m.

• January 6 at 8 p.m.
Breakfast Special
Start January off with the day’s most important meal. From a Cuban café in downtown St. Augustine, Florida to loco moco in Hawaii, there’s more to life than a bowl of cereal!

• January 13 at 8 p.m. (and January 2 at noon)
Sandwiches That You Will Like
What’s in your lunch pail? From PB&J to Texas barbecue on a bun, discover the plethora of unique restaurants around the country preserving regional charms between two slices of bread. Lunch is served.

• January 20 at 8 p.m. (and January 23 at noon)
Pennsylvania Diners and Other Roadside Restaurants
It’s what’s for dinner. In an age of fast-food, you can still find a quick, home-cooked meal at many Pennsylvania diners. Join Rick as he visits them and meets some characters along the way.

• January 27 at 8 p.m. (and January 30 at noon)
An Ice Cream Show
”You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream!” Satisfy your sweet tooth with some dessert and find out more about this creamy confection as Rick mixes history with a look at some unique and modern twists on this frozen treat.
