Anthony Bourdain and Nigella Lawson to Host 'The Taste'

Anthony Bourdain and Nigella Lawson to Host 'The Taste'

More details on their new ABC reality cooking show emerge

Anthony Bourdain may be switching over to CNN, but ABC will also be showing his famous face on their new cooking show, The Taste, Eater reports.

As previously reported, Bourdain is teaming up with Nigella Lawson for a new reality cooking competition, with Lawson and Bourdain heading a panel of four judges. Like The Voice but with food. Is Bourdain the next Simon Cowell? Most likely.

"Anthony Bourdain’s trademark of holding nothing back coupled with Nigella Lawson’s extensive culinary experience create a strong backbone for a completely innovative cooking competition," Caroline Kusser, a representative for SevenOne International, said in a press release.

ABC has picked up eight episodes of the show, and Bourdain and Lawson will choose cooks to mentor based on dishes. According to the press release, "In each episode there are two challenges; a team challenge and an individual challenge. At the end of each show the mentors must decide together who to eliminate." We wonder what the classic send-off line will be.

Anthony Bourdain celebrated his 60th birthday this past Saturday, and it looks like he's celebrating with a mini tour through Europe. Last week he was at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc Cap d'Antibes in the South of France and today he grabbed a late afternoon pint with his former co-host (RIP the Taste) and fellow famous food person Nigella Lawson in West London. Lawson and Bourdain posted the same photo to their Instagram accounts earlier this afternoon.

The pair shared a couple of pints of Guinness, a Scotch egg, and what appears to be either fries and ketchup or beef chips with horseradish cream at the Princess Victoria pub in Shepherds Bush West London, a place that's been around since 1829. The last time these two were spotted together was in 2014 while appearing in promotional spots for the Taste.
