NEW YORK, NY – September 20, 2010 – Cooking Channel enters the hilarious, informative and deliciously demented world of Bitchin’ Kitchen this fall, with the series set to join the network’s primetime lineup on Wednesday, October 6 at 10:30pm ET/PT. Created and starring chef-comedienne Nadia G., the comedy-cooking show is based on the popular Bitchin’ Kitchen web series. Covering themes from “Break-Up Brunches” to “Impressing the In-Laws,” Nadia G. rocks the kitchen with her tasty techniques and stiletto-sharp wit.
“Bitchin’ Kitchen is definitely not your mother’s traditional cooking show,” said Bruce Seidel, Senior Vice President, Programming, Cooking Channel. “Nadia G. is a rock-and-roll chick with an outrageous sense of humor, fierce culinary style, and her unique voice is a great fit for Cooking Channel.”
In the show’s premiere episode “Bag ‘Em, Tag ‘Em,” Nadia G. cooks a meal to seal the deal – you’ve finally met the partner of your dreams (or at least not the one in your nightmares), now it’s time to lock ‘em down! With tantalizing dishes impossible to resist – French Toast with Caramel and Crème Fraiche, Sirloin Shepherd’s Pie, and Fettuccine with sweet Crab, Peas and a Rose Sauce – Nadia G. will make sure your new love keeps coming back for more.
Upcoming episode themes include “Recession Recipes” with Zesty Spaghetti a la Puttansesca, Beef and Roasted Root Vegetable Stew and Ricotta Crepes topped with Raspberry-Chili Coulis and Dark Chocolate Shavings; a “Selfish Spread” of Golden Panko Shrimp with Strawberry Aioli, Thai-Italian Spring Rolls with a Peanut-Balsamic Dipping Sauce, and Apricot-Camembert Feuilletees; then “Furious Foods” spices it up with Diavoli Fritte with Onion and Dill Dip, Penne Rigate Sauteed with Rapini and Merguez Sausage, and Key Lime Habanero Cheesecake.
Nadia G. has a sharp wit, killer style and can cook up a storm in three-inch cherry heels. She looks at the funny side of everyday situations and turns them into occasions worth celebrating – with great food and big laughs. Focusing on accessible haute cuisine, fresh organic ingredients and a hands-on approach, Nadia G.’s recipes are rooted in the Casalinga-style Italian cuisine she grew up with and infused with the culinary influences of her beloved hometown Montreal. Bitchin’ Kitchen began as a short web series, and its runaway success led to a growing brand that now includes the television series, which premiered on Food Network Canada in 2010, a bestselling cookbook (HERE) and awards for Favorite Mobile Series, Hottest Emerging Brand in Canada and nomination for Brand of the Year 2009.
