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.
Hummm, I just do not know what to say…Bobby…smooth…really!
It’s “Zintra Zenis”. She’s a sweetheart and I can’t wait to watch her on this show!
Sam’s right on the pronounciation, and also right that she is a sweetheart. Really looking forward to seeing her on the show.
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.
