Feed Me TV Season 1

Design your own doughnuts in Lynbrook; drink a little too much rosé on the East End; fish for porgy and fluke in the Long Island Sound; learn the secrets to tie-dyed pancakes in Long Beach, dill pickles in Glen Cove, smoked brisket in Riverhead.

This is Feed Me TV, the show that takes you inside Long Island’s food scene, from end to end, shore to shore.

In each 15-minute episode, Newsday’s Pervaiz Shallwani takes a deep dive into one of the Island’s most compelling stories: the hot chef, the cool town, the new restaurant, the beloved old standard.

Episode 1: The journey from sea to table

Who actually catches the local catch? We motor the Long Island Sound to pull up porgy, sea bass and fluke, then follow the catch back to the Southold Fish Market before it’s served at the Shelter Island restaurant 18 Bay. Also in this episode: Exotic Indian-Chinese food at Nanking inside the Hilton Long Island in Melville and a smoking lesson with the pitmasters at Old Fields Barbecue.

Episode 2: The Gatorade of the Hamptons

Wölffer Estate Vineyard and Channing Daughters Winery say they have a hard time keeping easy-drinking rosé in stock during the dog days of summer. Heads clear, we head to Port Washington for upscale pub food at The Wild Goose, embrace the sushi burrito at Masa Asian Cuisine in Babylon and finish at Black Label Burgers in Westbury.

Episode 3: The village that never sleeps

Babylon was once a sleepy little village where burgers and red sauce ruled the dining scene. Today, it’s a South Shore restaurant hub. Small plates, craft cocktails, Asian fusion — check, check and check. Next, it’s a lesson in wood-fired cooking at Lulu Kitchen & Bar in Sag Harbor, then we’re off to Glen Cove to tour a family-run pickle business. We finish at Greenport’s Little Creek Oysters, a cult U-shuckerie.

Episode 4: Out of the ring and into the kitchen

At Babalu in Huntington, a former pro boxer puts his own modern twists on dishes from his Cuban family’s culinary repertoire. Then, we’re off to Tobay Beach to eat seafood with a view of the sea at Crazy Oyster, visit the Charlie’s Hot Dogs truck in Islip Terrace and finish with a buttoned-up burger at The Rex Burger & Lobster in Mineola.

Episode 5: Major league eats at Citi Field

The city’s sportiest dining destination? Citi Field, which not only hosts the New York Mets but some of New York’s most famous chefs: Danny Meyer (Shake Shack and Blue Smoke), David Chang (Fuku), Michael White (Nicoletta). Then it’s on to Locale in Patchogue for casual Italian fare, Lynbrook for custom-designed doughnuts and a peek inside the smoker at Maple Tree BBQ in Riverhead.

Episode 6: The mad scientist of burgers

From the outside, BBD’s doesn’t look like much, a generic storefront in a Rocky Point strip mall. But walk inside and it’s a shrine to heavy metal, beef and craft beer. From there we head to MaBella in Commack for Italian-American food, discover the secret of tie-dyed pancakes in Long Beach and finish with Turkish food at Pasha Kabob in North Lindenhurst.
