I lie in wait for food cart news and here’s a morsel juicier than a La Brasserie beer-brined chicken sandwich: Food Network’s Eat St. is back in Vancouver filming September 6-9.

And another: Simon Fraser University launches Street Eat Thursdays today, September 6. Every Thursday, food carts will venture up to the Burnaby campus and set up in the courtyard between Saywell Hall and the Academic Quadrangle from 11am-2pm.

Today, Japadog, Vancouver’s most famous food cart, will visit SFU’s Burnaby campus. So if the student one seat over is giving off an alluring aroma of terimayo in your afternoon lecture, you know why.

Find out more about the Eat St. filming schedule and SFU Street Eat Thursdays after the jump. Continue reading:

This has been a big couple weeks for Vancouver and cooking shows.  First, Top Chef shot its season finale at several restaurants around the city, including Bao Bei, Black+Blue and Coast (airing Feb. 29 at 10 p.m. on Bravo USA).   Now, a brand new competitive cooking show set in Vancouver is about to kick off.

Family Cook Off premieres on Thursday, March 1, at 9 p.m. on Food Network Canada.  The show, which has been described as a kind of Iron Chef for non-professional cooks by the Vancouver Sun, pits two families against one another as they race against the clock to cook the best meal.

And Vancouverites will instantly recognize the show’s backdrop.  Family Cook Off was filmed outside on the dock at Stamp’s Landing, on the edge of False Creek.  As families furiously cook away, you can make out sailboats floating by in False Creek and the glitzy new highrises of Yaletown on the opposite shore.  Plus, the show was shot last August during a stretch of gorgeous days – Talk about some great advertising for the city.

So how does Family Cook Off work?
