I like food TV. I suppose it’s kind of in my blood, but even if I’m just watching for inspirational purposes, looking for food trends, crazy combinations or just because I admire and respect the chefs who are on, when I do turn on the TV, it’s generally because I’m catching Top Chef, seeing a friend guest judge on Iron Chef or watching for potential flavor combinations or how to be more natural in front of the camera.
So, when I heard there’s a new show coming to ABC, a food talk show of sorts called ‘The Chew’, with Carla Hall, Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Clinton Kelly, and Daphne Oz in the cast, well, I had to check it out.
