Ludo Lefebvre Joining Anthony Bourdian and Nigella Lawson on 'The Taste'

More details emerge about Bourdain and Lawson's cooking show

Well, what do you know; Anthony Bourdain and Nigella Lawson's new cooking competition show, The Taste, is getting some fresh talent. Eater tips us off to new developments with The Taste, which includes new castmates Ludo Lefebvre and Brian Malarkey.

The two chefs will join Bourdain and Lawson as mentors on the ABC show, where they'll coach a team of competiting pros and amateurs to make it to the top. Strangely enough, this sounds a bit like Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off competition show, but with more people.

"In each episode, the groups will face team and individual challenges with a variety of culinary themes through several elimination rounds," the press release says. Then, the mentors do a blind tasting and declare a winner.


Sadly, the press release notes that the show won't be premiering until 2013, but 2013 is only some two-and-a-half months away (how did that happen?) so your Bourdain withdrawal symptoms might not hit the peak.
