At her South Beach cooking demo, Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri announced they'd be hosting a new show on Food Network later this year. Ray was pretty mum about the details, but did say it'd be a "culinary version of Dancing With the Stars."
Well, Rachael and Guy took to the airwaves today to formally announce their upcoming show, amid a cheering crowd and a culinary assembly that included Mario Batali, Sara Moulton, and Graham Kerr. Said Fieri: It's going to be "a brother and sister culinary battle. We're going to get some celebrities that are going to come on the show, with different levels of culinary ability but who are all into cooking. Rachael's going to get five, I'm going to get five, and it's going to battle royale."
It remains to be seen who'll win — or, even more important, which stars will face off on the show. We're hedging our bets on former Fieri sidekick Matthew McConaughey, as well as celebs-turned-chefs like Gwyneth Paltrow, Eva Longoria, and Sheryl Crow. Is this new show worthy of your TiVo? Who do you want to see on the competition?
