If you follow me on social media, you’ll have seen my super awesome very exciting announcement earlier this month!
But I’ll say it again, because the thrill certainly hasn’t gone from saying it…
I am going to be on an upcoming episode of TNT’s new series, On The Menu!
Naturally, I am a huge fan of all cooking shows. The huge downside, however, is that the most interaction I get with a show comes from me yelling at the contestants on the TV that they forgot an ingredient or didn’t cook the chicken how I would have. And after all the effort I put in as a viewer, I don’t even get to eat that gorgeous plate of food on the screen! Very upsetting indeed.
Well, that’s all about to change. On The Menu is TV’s first cooking competition show that gives viewers the chance to taste the winning dish after every episode! The always-charming Emeril Lagasse and hilarious Ty Pennington team up as the shows’ hosts, serving up laughs and wisdom in equal measures. Each episode, four passionate home cooks are tasked with creating a new and delicious dish for the menu of a popular American restaurant (such as Chili’s, Cheesecake Factory, California Pizza Kitchen, etc.). Emeril and Ty challenge the cooks with brand knowledge, creativity, kitchen savvy, and the always formidable time management! In the end, executives from each restaurant award one deserving home cook with the honor of placing their dish on menus all across the country…the very next day!
It is a huge honor to be a part of such an innovative show, and to have cooked alongside such talented home cooks. The episode I compete in airs November 28th, but I can’t encourage you enough to watch all season long! I hope you’re hungry!
On The Menu premiers TONIGHT, on TNT at 8:00pm ET/PT. You can watch the trailer HERE.
