by in Shows, January 7th, 2015

Worst Cooks Family FoodOn Sunday’s upcoming episode of Worst Cooks in America, the remaining 12 Boot Camp recruits will be put to the test, but it won’t be in a way anyone has seen before. Enter Family Food, a game show geared at testing recruits’ food IQ.

In this sneak peek photo, one member of the Blue Team and one member of the Red Team are quizzed with a question. The one who buzzes in first can take a jab at the answer, which in this case has caught mentors Tyler and Anne off-guard, as Tyler is left in stiches and Anne’s left awestruck. Can you guess what was said that was so funny for the mentors?

by in Shows, January 7th, 2015

Guy Fieri shoppingWhen it comes to grocery shopping, everyone has a strategy, whether it’s to get in and get out as fast as you can, or to stick to the list no matter what and not veer off. Guy Fieri, host of Guy’s Grocery Games, says that his important tip is shopping together. And that not only applies to himself and his family on an individual level, but it’s also advice for the families competing in Guy’s Grocery Games: Family Style, airing Sundays in January at 8|7c.

Guy is proud to say he personally loves grocery shopping, but when it comes to shopping with the family, he has “really strict rules,” especially in a big-box store. Find out what he says in his interview with FN Dish about the show’s family competition.

“We Really Stepped Up Our Sabotages” — Alton’s After-Show

by in Shows, January 4th, 2015

While even the seemingly most-approachable sabotages are still a challenge for Cutthroat Kitchen competitors, Alton Brown took the game to extreme heights and lengths on tonight’s all-new episode when he auctioned off not one but two next-level tests. “We really stepped up our sabotages,” Alton explained on the latest installment of his After-Show, introducing judge Simon Majumdar to these evilicious unfoldings.

“We thought we would up the ante this time and make somebody cook in a bunk bed,” Alton told Simon of a sabotage for the breakfast hash round. “Prep on the bottom, cook on the top,” he added of the doozy. After checking out the top bunk’s burner and work station, Simon cited the potential areas of struggle as “just about everything,” though he noted of Chef Jouvens, who was forced to contend with this sabotage, “He got the heat, so that’s why he managed to get a crust on his potatoes.”

One-on-One with the First Recruit Eliminated from the Blue Team — Worst Cooks in America

by in Shows, January 4th, 2015

Blue Team Elimination on Worst Cooks in AmericaThis season on Worst Cooks in America, 14 new helpless home cooks have joined the ranks to be mentored by chefs Tyler Florence and Anne Burrell.

Unfortunately, however, every week the two lowest-scoring recruits will be kicked out of Boot Camp, losing the chance to win the prize money, but leaving with new skills they’ve learned from their mentors.

POLL: Lighter Recipes Fit for 2015

by in Shows, January 3rd, 2015

The KitchenFrom better-for-you breakfasts to surprisingly light desserts, this morning’s all-new episode of The Kitchen celebrated healthier cooking as the cast kicked off 2015 with fresh new recipes. But just because the new year often signals the start of smarter-eating resolutions doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite foods; in fact, the co-hosts greeted 2015 by introducing made-over recipes for a few classically indulgent dishes, including pasta with Alfredo sauce and cheesy nachos (click here to get all of the recipes featured on the show).

FN Dish wants to know: As you settle into the new year and perhaps begin a better-for-you eating plan, what dish would you most like to lighten up? Do you have a strong sweet tooth that craves made-over chocolate cake, or do you tend toward savory plates and prefer healthier chips and dip? Cast your vote below for the food you’d like to make cleaner, then browse more of Food Network’s made-over meals.
