Cheflebrity Smörgåsbord: Philly Burger Beatdown


The latest and greatest news about celebrity chefs, served up buffet style.

– The locals are not taking kindly to the new Philadelphia location of Bobby’s Burger Palace.  That’s what you get for defeating Philly legend Delilah Winder on Throwdown.

– A new iPhone app will let Mark Bittman follow you around like some kind of creepy food genius.  Question:  How comfortable are you bringing a several-hundred-dollar electronic device into the kitchen with you?

After the jump…food television Upfront-a-palooza!

The Next Food Network Star will be filming this season in Hollywood rather than its usual NYC locale and includes a contestant named “Dzintra Dzenis.”  Any commenter who can explain to me how to pronounce that name gets a gold star.

– The lineup for the new Cooking Channel was also released at Upfronts and will feature a classic cooking block that includes Julia Child and The Galloping Gourmet as well as — GASP! — a show on cooking Indian food.  I’m already calling up Kabletown to make sure this is among the 1,700 channels I get.  I’m sure it won’t be.

– Food Network’s slate of new offerings features shows dedicated to food trucks and cupcakes.  I don’t think I need to tell you how that made me feel.

  1. It’s “Zintra Zenis”. She’s a sweetheart and I can’t wait to watch her on this show!

  2. Sam’s right on the pronounciation, and also right that she is a sweetheart. Really looking forward to seeing her on the show.

  3. I thought it I spelled with dz not z. She’s Latvian or has some Latvian roots. So why would you use a lv name and say it wrong????? It’s pronounsed as d and z at the same time. Try saying d as dinner and say z as zip instead. You’ll hear dz.
