ABC orders Nigella Lawson and Anthony Bourdain cooking competition show
OMG I absolutely adore Nigella Lawson. She is my domestic goddess. I’m an instant viewer!
THR reports that ABC has ordered a cooking competition show starring Nigella and Anthony Bourdain. The show will feature professional and amateur cooks.
ABC is moving into the kitchen. The network has tapped culinary personalities Anthony Bourdain and Nigella Lawson to host a new cooking competition, and casting for contestants is already underway.
A casting call on ABC’s website, dubbed only “ABC Cooking Show,” says the series will “pit America’s most skilled cooks against one another in a show unlike any other.” An accompanying video starring Bourdain and Lawson says the series is open to both professional and amateur cooks.
Got Something to Add?
I'm a cooking show addict, so I'm sure I'll tune in. Not sure how Anthony B will translate to network t.v., though I guess they can just bleep him a lot like they do Gordon Ramsey.
Love Nigella but because of my disdain of Anthony Bourdain, I will not be watching this! He in fact hates any cooking reality competition shows even though he judged "Top Chef" on Bravo!! Hypocrite much Anthony!!
But wait, I thought Anthony Bourdain said those cooking competition shows and their contestants were crap? ;) That was all part of the first rant where he slammed Paula Dean- and Guy Fieri.
