But this Iron Chef America sous for Mario Batali and Executive Chef at New York's Centro Vinoteca would probably not even see her first episode... if it weren't for TiVo.
"Most people who work nights aren’t up at that time. If it weren’t for Tivo I’d probably miss my own premiere," Anne tells the Village Voice.
I know a lot of people who are looking forward to this show. I'm hoping Anne is able to bring the cooking know-how (which we know she has) along with the personality one needs to host a good show.
And the show's concept is pretty cool.
"Every show is based around a menu. The show starts with me preparing the menu at Centro and then moves to the home kitchen, where I break it down and teach people the technique. It’s about how to successfully cook those restaurant dishes at home."
Anne will certainly raise the culinary level of Food Network's daytime programming if she sticks around beyond her six episode trial season. Here's the test to see if a "real" chef can get higher ratings than the home cooks of the network.
You excited about Anne's show?
