Nadia G’s Bitchin’ Kitchen Returns To Cooking Channel
One year ago I sat down for a conversation with Nadia G of Bitchin’ Kitchen. The resulting interview was one of the most entertaining I’ve ever done. Nadia knocked me out with her authenticity, energy and positivity. That’s why I was thrilled when I got the following press release from the Cooking Channel:
Season Two of Original Series Premieres Wednesday, November 2nd at 10pm ET/7pm PT and Delivers Nadia G’s Fresh Take on Haute Cuisine with a Side of Stiletto-Sharp Wit
NEW YORK, NY – September 27, 2011 – Cooking Channel returns to the wildly popular world of Culinary It-Girl Nadia G this November, with a second season of the comedy-cooking show Nadia G’s Bitchin’ Kitchen slated to premiere on Wednesday, November 2nd at 10pm ET/7pm PT. Just as skilled in strutting in stilettos as wielding a meat cleaver, Nadia brings her savvy chef know-how and rock star attitude to the series while sharing recipes and cooking tips for both beginner and seasoned at-home cooks.
With themes from “Bitchin’ Booty Camp” offering healthy dishes for staying in shape, and “Girls Night In” for a decadent evening with cocktails, to “Getting the Romance Back” for couples who want to reignite the magic, Nadia G’s Bitchin Kitchen serves up platefuls of killer food and wicked entertainment.
In the second season premiere, “(Dysfunctional) Family Pizza Night,” Nadia throws a make-your-own pizza party and shares her family recipe for Rustic Pan Pizza from scratch. She whips up her childhood favorite Potato Pizza with Onions and Herbs, and follows it up with a masterpiece Pizza with Salami di Genoa, Calamita Olives, Pecorino and Fresh Spinach. After the leftover dough is fried to make Fritelle with kid-friendly Chocolate Nougat Fondue, Nadia riffs on family dynamics and embodies the rock-star fantasy most parents had to abandon along the way. After the premiere of her “Flavor of the Week” music video, Nadia is joined by her cast of food correspondents – Panos, The Spice Agent and Hans.
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’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.
Nadia G’s Bitchin’ Kitchen began as the short web program “Bitchin’ Kitchen.” The series was a runaway success winning numerous awards such as Favorite Mobile Series, Hottest Emerging Brand in Canada and a nomination for Brand of the Year 2009. In 2010, the series had its television premiere on Food Network Canada and Cooking Channel. Nadia G is also releasing a new book “Cookin’ for Trouble” (Ballantine), which will be available beginning October 25th.
