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.

There is a tremendous interest in tv cookery programs at the moment, and we all love to watch our chefs show their skills. For us finding new recipes and new ways of cooking are exciting. This blog tries hard to keep up to date with the new tv shows, when they are on and comments about them and as a way of helping you select the show or shows you want to watch.

We realise many cooks put out cookbooks to accompany their shows and as many folks would like to buy the cookbooks that accompany a particular tv program we would like to offer you the widest selection we can. To service that need we have links to Amazon with very good and fair prices, also free postage for orders over £15.

Best Selling Chefs and Popular US Cooks and Recipe Links

Best Selling and Popular US Cooks and Recipes

Now at last the summer is ending and the onset of fall is due, we can find ourselves in the kitchen cooking a meal for the family. There is no better way to spend time together, perhaps a weekend or an afternoon. There are many sources of inspiration, tv chefs, cookbooks and magazines.

I thought it may be a help to review some of the popular US cooks and their recipes. At the moment amongst the many popular US Chefs, we have  Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis, Paula Deen, Rachel Ray, Mario Batali, Jamie Oliver, Alton Brown, Sandra Lee and Rocco DeSpirito

Paula Deen and Rachel Ray are popular around the world. Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa is now a prime tv program on the UK's UKTV Food channel. 

What helps when cooking is the best of ingredients, as fresh as possible, good recipes and I believe we need the best of utensils and appliances. Cooking with ovens that are not easy to control can undo all the preparation and hard work in the kitchen. For access to some wonderful gourmet foods, please select this Gourmet Food link, as list of the foods available is given below.

So I hope these recipe links help provide some new ideas and provide pleasant food.

A guide to these famous chefs with links through Amazon (US site) to recipes and book reviews, can be found by selecting one of the links above or by clicking Fall cookingThere are forty recipes to explore, see links below ~
