Chelsea HandlerChelsea Handler is leaving E! At least that's what she told me ... I've got the 'Chelsea Lately' funny lady's explanation why on this week's show.

I also catch up with 'Iron Chef' Michael Symon, who dishes the dirt on fellow TV foodie Anthony Bourdain and challenges Momfuku guru David Chang to a Kitchen Stadium pork-off.

Then I've got some dream guest star casting from the stars of Fox's fall drama 'Lone Star,' including a mobster, an action star and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Well, they do have connections ...

Chef Michael SymonMichael Symon won 'The Next Iron Chef' a few years back to become a reality TV winner-turned-'Iron Chef America.'

Four Cooking Channel Shows That Look Delicious

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 21st 2010 2:02PM
Food JammersIf you take your remote control and surf on over to Fine Living Network on May 31, well, it won't be there. Instead, you're going to see The Cooking Channel, Food Network's new channel devoted to food (of course), drinks, and travel. They've announced the lineup for the network's debut, and while some of the shows seem like something we could see on the parent network, there's enough quirky new stuff to grab your attention.

Some are using the word "edgy" to describe the new channel too, but unless they're breaking the necks of live chickens right on television, this is still just a food channel. Oh, wait, they actually are going to break chicken necks! Alrighty.

After the jump, my picks for the four shows that look the most interesting, as well as a quick rundown on what else we're going to see on the new channel.

Next Iron ChefSo last night was the big battle between Chef Garces and Chef Mehta, the two finalists on Food Network's Next Iron Chef with two very different cooking styles. I didn't watch much of this season, but judging from last night's episode I wish I had. Jeffrey Steingarten is one of my favorite judges, and it's interesting to see other iron chefs in the judging chairs.

Did the right chef win?

Dinner: Impossible enlists a new chef

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 22nd 2008 10:01AM
Michael SymonFood Network has been smarting from the debacle involving Robert Irvine, the former host of Dinner: Impossible. Now, the other shoe has dropped in the kitchen. Food Network announced that Michael Symon will replace Chef Irvine on Dinner: Impossible. This should be a piece of cake -- ha, ha, food metaphor -- for Chef Symon. He has already competed for a major role at Food Network and won. He's one of the Iron Chefs, having defeated all challengers in last seasons on air contest.

Since that victory last summer, he has joined Mario Batali, Cat Cora, Bobby Flay and Masaharu Morimoto as a member of the home team on Iron Chef America. He's been cooking in Kitchen Stadium along with the rest of the gang.

Chef Symon owns the Lola and Lolita restaurants in Cleveland, Ohio, and is a graduate from The Culinary Institute of America. After the Food Network's experience with Chef Robert Irvine, it's safe to say that Michael Symon's resume has been fully vetted.
