'The Chew' Premieres on ABC

On the ABC Network yesterday, there was a whole lot of talk on how the new food talk show, The Chew, turned on TV screens during a lazy afternoon. The concept of the show, as noted on The ABC Network, is to 'celebrate and explore life through food,' and it did just that. The show engages audience members through taste tests, educates you on home entertaining, restaurant openings, holiday dining and brings in a variety of culinary stars, to enable you to spend a little time learning about the wonderful world of food.

With Chefs Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, along with Clinton Kelly and Daphne Oz as the hosts, together they share about all-things-food and their own personal experiences with audiences during daytime television. So if you can get to a TV screen at 1pm daily, The Chew is the new talk show for all to watch.

Food Republic's Exclusive Video Interview With Chef Michael Symon

I'm so excited about the new talk show on ABC, The Chew. Hosted by Chefs Michael Symon, Mario Batali, and Carla Hall along with nutrition expert Daphne Oz and fashion insider Clinton Kelly, the show will discuss all topics food-related.   Check out Food Republic's exclusive video interview with Michael Symon. As Symon says, there's a lot of cooking on TV right now, and food is important, but there hasn't been a talk show specifically devoted to food.

The show will cover anything and everything food from political topics like childhood obesity and diabetes, to fun cooking things like fellow chefs promoting new cookbooks.

Head over to Food Republic to watch the exclusive interview with Chef Symon, and to find out which character on The View he'd choose to be.
