Emeril Lagasse Cooking Up New Series, Mike Tyson 'Breaking In' to Primetime, and More

by AOL TV Staff, posted Apr 14th 2011 12:45AM
Emeril Lagasse is back in the kitchen -- but he won't be dishing out the food. The Cooking Channel announced Wednesday a May 5 debut for 'The Originals With Emeril,' a new series that sees Lagasse hitting the road to pay tribute to iconic food establishments that have helped shape the country's culinary landscape. While the restaurant business is risky, challenging and faddish, and the life of a restaurant can sometimes be short, every city has cherished institutions that have stood the test of time. In each 30-minute episode, Lagasse will visit a new city and go behind-the-scenes at three historic eateries -- speaking with the chefs and customers to help reveal their fascinating stories.

The Cooking Channel also revealed several other new primetime offerings, including shows that look at street food, pastry chefs and Spanish foods: 'Eat St.' (premiering April 12), 'Unique Sweets' (April 24), 'From Spain With Love' (May 27) and 'Hook, Line & Dinner' (June 7).

The Food Network, meanwhile, also announced a slew of new series: Ashley Vicos' 'Have Cake, Will Travel,' premiering April 26, 'Best in Smoke' (May 8), 'Crave' (June 20) and, later this year, 'Heat Seekers,' 'Tough Cookies,' 'Chef Hunte' and 'Sugar High.' [The Hollywood Reporter]

First Lady will appear on a very special Iron Chef America

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 4th 2009 5:35PM
Iron Chef AmericaSome people say that President Obama has been on TV too much since he became President a year ago, but his wife is about to make a big splash on one of Food Network's most popular shows.

First Lady Michelle Obama will reveal the secret ingredient on the January 3 special episode of Iron Chef America (I don't think it's the season premiere because we're in the middle of new episodes right now). There's no specifics yet on what the secret ingredient will be, but it is something that grows in the White House garden and ties in with the First Lady's "Healthy Kids Initiative" to get kids eating better and exercising. Beyond all that, this sounds like its going to be a great episode of the show. It will pit White House chef Cristeta Comerford and Bobby Flay against Mario Batali and Emeril Lagasse.

You know what I'd like to see as the secret ingredient on Iron Chef America? Ring Dings. Or how about Atomic Fireballs?

Fine Living will become the Cooking Channel

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 9th 2009 12:00PM
fine_living_networkWhen you're a cable network and you're only reaching 55 million households and want to reach twice that amount, what do you do? If you're Scripps Networks, you rebrand the channel and give it a new name. That's why Fine Living will become the Cooking Channel in 2010.

The way I see this, since Scripps owns the Food Network, the Cooking Channel will be sort of a Food Network annex. Food Network 2.0. Food Network, Two. In actuality, a lot of the programming on Fine Living now is connected to Food Network. Old Iron Chef episodes, Emeril LaGasse and Mario Batali and Wolfgang Puck ... all cooking shows that were once on Food Network.

Now that it's going to drop the Fine Living angle and concentrate on cooking, all the overflow from Food Network will have somewhere to go.

The Next Food Network Star: VIP Party in Miami - open thread

EmerilSo we're down to two.

If Emeril could get a sitcom, why not Padma?

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 20th 2009 8:00PM
Padma LakshmiI love Top Chef (well, the regular version... this oddball Masters edition seems to be just summer filler until the real show starts again). I especially enjoy the hosting stylings of Padma Lakshmi, and not just because of her looks. She has a presence, seems to know her food, and displays an intelligence that fits well in the cerebral nature of the show.

But the word "funny" has never come to mind when I've seen her work. Which is why I'm scratching my head at the news that NBC is developing a sitcom for Lakshmi. You heard me. As in most cases in the world of TV, the premise can be boiled down into one oh-so-confidence-infusing sentence, according to Variety: "Building on her Top Chef credentials, the show will star Lakshmi as a woman working in the culinary world." One possible title? Single Serving.

Oofah. The show's got "two week mid-season stinker" written all over it, doesn't it?

Martha StewartOh, boy, I can't wait! Finally, after all this time we're going to get to go behind the gates, into the exclusive, much-discussed but rarely filmed Martha Stewart estate. Actually, not the whole estate, but part of it. On her syndicated show, Martha Stewart's 153-acre Bedford, New York farm will be on display in the season ahead.

When the show returns with new episodes on September 15, Ms. Martha will share all the fun stuff she grows and prunes and plants. You know what this means, don't you? Compost heap! Seriously, Martha believes in natural recycling.

There will also be her state-of-the-art greenhouses and her extensive flower and vegetable gardens. Over a hundred guests will join Martha on her tour of the farm.
