Cat Cora to Join OWN With a New Cooking Show

Jun 15 2010 - 11:55am

Oprah Winfrey [1]'s on the hunt to find talk show hosts [2] for her new cable network OWN [3] — but she's already found one in celebrity chef Cat Cora [4].

Yesterday brought news that the Iron Chef [5] is developing a show [6] where she will travel the country, offering nutritional, cooking, and healthy living advice to families in need of a lifestyle overhaul. Shed Media, of Real Housewives of New York City [7] fame, will produce.

Chef Cora's new program won't air until at least January 2011, when the network is set to replace the Discovery Health Channel. It will follow the network's mission [8] to "connecting you to your best self and the world," which seems slightly reminiscent of her former role in Food Network's Kitchen Accomplished.

It'll be nice to see a softer side of Cora, after years of seeing her exhibit nothing but fierce Iron-clad determination to win in Kitchen Stadium. Does this sound like a show you'd watch?
