Nigella Lawson – The Taste USA

Nigella Lawson is making a big impact in the USA on the new ABC series The Taste. The program is a new take on food and it is all about Taste.

***   The Taste with Nigella Lawson UK CH4 9pm 7 Jan 2014

Nigella is the famous food wizzo from the UK and her recent series Nigillissima broadcast, Nigellissima – Instant Italian Inspiration: episode 4 recipes Mon 15 Oct 2012.

The Taste has four mentors – the sexy female British food expert Nigella Lawson, chef and Kitchen Confidential  star Anthony Bourdain, restauranter Brian Malarkey and chef and author Ludo Lefebvre.

Book links for each mentor:

Each mentor coaches a team consisting of four amateur and professional chefs – selected from the nationwide call for chefs to take part.

It is the aim of these sixteen chefs to win through with their recipes and dishes – the Taste of each dish being the yes or no to progressing.

The mentors will have blind tastings with no prior knowledge of the dish and the chefs will face different culinary challenges to test their abilities.

See who was selected as a contestant on the Taste: Adam (chef Kez), Sarah, Kyle, Khristainne, Jeanette, Todd, Renatta, Markus, Mai, Nathaniel, Ninamarie & Paul, Sieger, Cynthia, Micah, TJ, Diane, Sean, Renee, Lauren.

In the United States and Canada the show begins with a two hour audition on ABC and CBS at 8.00pm. Channel 9 Australia and the UK soon after. ABC has ordered eight episodes from production company Seven One International. On Channel 4 in the UK

Solid debut ratings for The Taste.

Recipe of the Week: Nigella’s Eggs in Purgatory

Anthony Bourdain is making a new travel series for CNN, scheduled to air in early 2013.

In the first show Nigella wowed the audience and flirted with the mentors…..where to buy that red dress! The dispensary in Kensington, London. More on Nigella’s website.
