It’s no secret that I love The Food Network~ it’s right over there on my Blogger profile bio. I love it so much that I *nearly* wrote a letter to the network a few years ago, detailing why they should come up with a children’s cartoon called “The Little Chefs.”
*aka, did some thinking about it while looking at Mario Batali marinara sauce and having my little daughter tug on my legs at the grocery store*
That’s right, I wanted them to create a tv show with a 6-year-old Emeril Lagasse, Paula Deen, Guy Fieri, Sunny Anderson, Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis, Mario Batali, and especially a 6-year-old Alton Brown.
How adorable would that show be??? Little Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto getting into a playground fight with Little Robert Irvine.
Little Paula Deen getting upset with Little Bobby Flay for setting up a rival lemonade/fried chicken stand?
It still makes me happy just to think about that imaginary show.
Sadly, as far as I know (PLEASE correct me if I’m wrong), a cartoon version of Food Network chefs isn’t coming to your television anytime soon, BUT something even better is:
A CHILDREN'S BOOK SERIES BY GIADA!!
According to GalleyCat:
Food Network star and cookbook author Giada De Laurentiis has inked a deal with to publish a children’s book series.
The series … is aimed at readers ages 7-10 and follows brother and sister Alfie and Emilia as they are transported to famous food cities around the world, where they learn first-hand how food cannot only take you places but can also bring you back home.
I love your obsession! And the cartoon sounds hilarious. :D Here's to hoping Giada's books are great!ReplyDelete
Thanks Janet~ I'm hoping they're great too!Delete
Have you watched The Great British Bake-off yet? Best baking show, Evar!ReplyDelete
Haven't seen it! I'll look into it, thanks :)Delete
It's available on YouTube. LOVE that show.Delete
PS: Glad you snagged a Junie B., book. Such a great series.
Sounds like a cool story idea. Awesome that you love The Food Channel. My husband does too. I don't have enough time to sit and watch it.ReplyDelete
It's my one tv indulgence (okay, the Travel Channel as well). I don't really watch much tv at all anymore--free time always goes to writing--but when I DO watch, it's usually food/travel-related.Delete
My girl Paula would 'whip' Bobby into a custard! :DReplyDelete
Ha! Love the trash talk :)Delete
What an inspirational blog. I am really such a big fan of these kind of stuff. I am very glad to come across such a nice information. I love food and recipes all the time. I would love to recommend it to others. Summer SausageReplyDelete
Mrs. Ninja is also obsessed with the food network, which leads to me eating better meals:) I think a kid's cooking show is a great idea and would be a lot of fun!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ninja! Mrs. Ninja sounds like a wise woman :)Delete
Not having TV, I have never seen The Food Network, although, as the cooker in the house, I would probably watch it from time to time just to get ideas. Oh, well...ReplyDelete
Sounds like it could be a good book series, though? I guess.
They should totally make your cartoon!
The book series sounds like my kind of plot~ hope it turns out as yummy as it sounds! Still majorly impressed with your lack of television.Delete
I don't actually much think about it anymore. I haven't "watched TV" since I was about 15.ReplyDelete
I bet your brain is packed with much better information than my television commercial-soaked brain contains! :)Delete
Love the little chef idea. They really should do that.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Kirsten~ a girl can dream :)Delete
What a charming idea! I still think it has a lot of merit. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
You too~ hope you had a happy Easter!Delete
I love your ideas! Maybe you should pitch to SNL instead of the Food Network... :-)ReplyDelete
Ha! But SNL would just make fun of it, and I'm quite serious about the show ;)Delete
Cool! I confess I don't watch any cable so I'm in teh dark with your post, but I like the sound of Giada's book. Good to see you around again Jess! Take care!ReplyDelete
Food Network and Travel Channel are pretty much the only cable channels we watch. Well, that and the Golf Channel, which my hubby LOVES :)Delete
Food, international travel, and middle grade--three of my favorite things! I'll definitely want to check this series out. Jess, you're always in the know about such cool stuff!ReplyDelete
With the subject matter of your book, I thought you might be interested (ANYBODY READING THIS: TARA HAS AN AWESOME MIDDLE GRADE BOOK COMING OUT NEXT SUMMER!).Delete
I think that could workReplyDelete
Thanks, Matt :)Delete
I love your idea! And you should still ink that letter...perhaps suggest yourself as the writer :)ReplyDelete
Oooo, a nice dream, but I think they'd go with someone a little more established. Correction, AT ALL established :) Too bad for me :)Delete
I miss Food Network, especially Giada (got rid of our cable to save money). Then again I'm on a diet now, so maybe not a good idea! But a pair of kids getting transported to famous food cities around the world??? In love!ReplyDelete
I'm really hoping it's as yummy as it sounds. If you're on a diet, then you should watch Bizarre Foods to curb your appetite ;)Delete
Sounds interesting even though I'm a bit eh about it.ReplyDelete
I like your idea a lot better though. :)
Thanks Akoss :)Delete
