It's that time of year again, foodies.
- Our fave channel, the Food Network (duh!) has finally listed its lineup...and here are some of our favorite new shows:
What Would Bryan Boitano Make?: (Seriously?) Yes, it's true. The Canadian Olympic champ plans to skate into your heart this August with a daytime show about cooking for events (with a new 'challenge' every episode). We can't wait to skip work and see what this character is going to come up with! Added points for the South Park reference. And did we mention we heart figure skating Canadian cooks?
Foods That Changed The World: If Alton Brown's scholarly shtick doesn't drive you up a wall, you'll love this mini-series (set to debut in 2010) about food that...you guessed it...changed the world. We hope there will be a strong emphasis on mead.
Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Chefs Anne Burrell and Beau MacMillan will try to transform six hopeless cooks into kitchen superstars in just 10 days! Think of this as a Queer Eye for the Straight Guy without the hair 'szhuszhing' and inappropriate, tight jeans (we hope).
The Next Iron Chef: This October, Chefs will compete for instant fame--with one lucky contestant joining the ranks of Bobby Flay, Cat Cora, and the MIA Mario Batali (where did he go?). We hope Season Two gives us more superfluous back flips from the Chairman. We love that guy.
