The Chew coming to ABC on September 26, 2011

I just learned about a new talk show that will debut on ABC on September 26, 2011 called The Chew. It sounds like a combination cooking show and talk show all rolled up into one.

The Chew celebrates and explores life through food, co-hosted by a dynamic group of engaging, fun, relatable experts in food, style, and entertaining. Combining all aspects of their careers, these vivacious co-hosts share kid-friendly advice, eating guides and party ideas along with fun tips for the whole family.

The Emmy award winning creators of “Paula Deen’s Home Cooking” and “Down Home With The Neely’s”, have combined  the tools, tips, tricks and recipes to bring your family and friends together with memorable personalities to create a live, one hour daytime talk show where viewers get the dish on anything and everything related to the world of food and beyond.

As a source of joy, health, family ritual, friendship, breaking news, dating, fitness, travel adventures, and life’s best moments- food is at the center of everyone’s life.  The hosts’ rich and varied mix of experiences stirs up honest and lively exchanges to make life better, fuller and more fun. With the best lifestyle team on TV, The Chew is a leap forward into a delicious new kind of talk show.

The co-hosts include:

Mario Batali – Critically acclaimed chef, restaurateur, award-winning author, and television personality, Mario Batali is arguably one of the most recognized and respected chefs working in America today. Mario is also the chef/owner of  Babbo Ristorante e Enoteca, Lupa Osteria Romana , Otto Enoteca Pizzeria, Casa Mono, Bar JamónDel Posto, Osteria Mozza and Pizzeria Mozza, Mozza2Go,Scuola di Pizza, Carnevino Italian Steakhouse . An apprenticeship with London’s legendary chef Marco Pierre White and three years of intense culinary training in the Northern Italian village of Borgo Capanne gave him the essential skills and knowledge to return to his native U.S., eager to plant his orange-clogged foot firmly on the behinds of the checkered-tablecloth Italian restaurant establishment.

 

Micheal Symon – Michael Symon cooks with soul. Growing up in a Greek and Sicilian family, the Cleveland native creates boldly flavored, deeply satisfying dishes at his four restaurants in America’s heartland: Lola, Lolita, Roast and B Spot. He also shares his exuberant, approachable cooking style and infectious laugh with viewers as an Iron Chef on the Food Network. 

Clinton Kelly – Clinton Kelly is best known for the warm humor and style advice he brings each week to TLC’s highly rated What Not to Wear. Since 2003 he has starred in more than 270 hour-long episodes of the series, in addition to several specials for TLC including Miss America (2008-2010), Fashioning a Home with Clinton Kelly, Mind Your Manners and Redo My Spouse. 

Carla Hall – “Ticky boo” … “Hootiehoo!” … “Toodles Poodles!” Carla Hall’s signature catchphrases reflect her whimsical approach to life. “It’s all about having fun,” she says, belying the thoughtfulness with which she approaches her profession.  America fell in love with Carla’s heart-felt approach as she cooked her way into the finals on season five of the award-winning Bravo show, Top Chef and recently returned to win the Fan Favorite Award in this past season’s Top Chef All Stars.

Daphne Oz – Daphne Oz is a 2008 graduate of Princeton University, and the author of the national bestseller The Dorm Room Diet, first published in 2006. Daphne and her book have been featured in The New York Times, People, Reader’s Digest, Teen Vogue, Seventeen, Cosmo Girl!, and The Wall Street Journal, and on Good Morning America, The Tyra Banks Show, Fox & Friends, and NPR’s Weekend Edition

It sounds like an interesting idea for a talk show. I love how they are going to combine food and cooking into the show. I’m especially looking forward to new recipes plus cooking tips and tricks.

I have a couple of recipes that will be shared on The Chew that I was given permission to share my readers.

Homemade Peanut Butter

    THE CHEW…WHAT A STUPID NAME FOR A SHOW AND I REFUSE TO WATCH IT. I ACTUALLY GET SICK TO MY STOMACH EVERYTIME THE COMMERCIAL COMES ON AND I HATE THE SOUND OF IT AND I HOPE TO HEAR THAT IT FLOPS AND IS CANCELLED ALONG WITH THE REVOLUTION. IT IS UNFORGIVABLE THAT THEY ARE REPLACING MY SOAPS. YOU WANT FOOD YOU GO TO THE FOOD NETWORK. YOU WANT HEALTH, YOU HAVE THE DOCTORS AND DR. OZ. SO I GUESS IT WILL MEAN I’LL HAVE AN EXTRA 2 HRS. A DAY TO DO SOMETHING MORE IMPORTANT THAN WATCHING ABC WHICH I’M GETTING TO THE POINT THAT I DON’T WATCH AS MUCH AS I USED TO. I’VE GONE TO THE OTHER NETWORKS. THERE IS NO POINT IN BEING A LOYAL FAN.

  5. What an interesting mix of hosts/co-hosts! I really liked Carla on Top Chef, I’m glad she is on another show, and I’ll have to tune in to see her!

  6. I think this will be a great show, I love Mario I think he’s a great Italian chef, and Carla she’s such a fun loving person! Michael Symons with his Greek and Italian mix, simple loves the recipes he comes up with. Clinton always has some great tips for making you look fabulous. This show is not just about cooking. Daphne is new to me, however, I look foward to getting to know her. I plan to setup my DVR and not miss this show.
