Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson to Host ABC Cooking Show
The bad boy and the sweetheart will be teaming up for a competitive reality cooking show
Looks like Anthony Bourdain isn't just heading to CNN; Eater uncovered an ABC casting call for a cooking show with Anthony Bourdain and Nigella Lawson, where the two will "pit America's most skilled cooks against one another in a show unlike any other."
Bourdain confirmed, "It's true. I will be hosting a competitive reality series for ABC. I'm particularly looking forward to working with Nigella — who's a friend from way back... More to come later." The show will be produced by Kinetic Content, also behind Betty White's Off Their Rockers and the History Channel's Harvest.
ABC is casting for the show now, with application instructions here. They're looking for "professional chefs, home cooks, and foodies from all walks of life" to work with the two food personalities. Perhaps we'll get some YouTube mashups of dirty talk between Bourdain and Lawson, given Lawson's affinity for choosing words too easily taken out of context.
