What's next: belly shots with Hoda and Kathie Lee?

Sorry, I couldn't resist -- it may turn out OK. Worth a shot...

    Eye candy for both sexes! Will be interesting to see how it plays out. Sounds rather Master Chef-like.

    But the fact you said both Hoda and Kathie Lee's names in your initial post makes me wanna :::::hork::::::

    BTW, you can add Bourdain's and Lawson's names to your subject line for a little while - it might gather more interest. I almost skipped over your post because I didn't know what it would be about. (Your post doesn't say anything either). Just a thought.

      "Eye candy for both sexes!"

      While I find Nigella an attractive, sexy woman, as a gay man I find Bourdain not very attractive at all. I guess I lose! lol

        Oops. Sorry, ttoommyy! I've heard the same from a few gay friends - AB does nothing for them. My other "boyfriend", Chef Eric Ripert, OTOH, seems to work for a few of them. :-)

            Yeah, well stick up your dukes. You have to get through me to get anywhere near him. :-P

          Bourdain is like the culinary world's Keith Richards .........

          I'd LOVE to see him teamed up with his fave gal ...... Rachael Ray :-D

            I think he secretly has a crush on her. You know, like boys do in grammar school. Pretend you don't like a girl...

        Doesn't the media savvy Bourdain know that there are too many cooking competition shows already, and not enough instructional shows for the advanced home cooks like us? :)

          How to shows without competition, angst, ego's and back stabbing typically do not sell in the North American market place. Julia Child, Graham Kerr, and Jeff Smith wouldn't last a season if they were to premier today. The internet and Youtube usually provide excellent instruction.

          Since Bourdain made my absolute favorite EVAH comment about bad food on Top Chef, calling Marcel's dish a "perfect shitstorm of fucking awfulness", I have high hopes

          But since it's on network TV and not cable, AB will have to tone it down a bit.

            That AB quote almost makes me wish I had cable - just for the sheer beauty of hearing that spoken out loud.

              It did get bleeped but it was quite easy to figure out what he said.

            This is a competition show I'd like to see. One of the winning dishes will no doubt be duck balls coated in chocolate.

            I think this is a wonderful pairing of unabashed hedonists, Nigella so calm and lovely and Tony weaver of high-concept snark poetry.

            I just hope the competitions aren't over the top silly i.e., using an underwater blowtorch to cook the perfect omelette while fighting off sharks.
