Image Credit: Isabella Vosmikova/BravoMarcel from Top Chef is getting his own show on Syfy, and yet my dream of a Kevin Gillespie show called “First We Cook, Then We Cuddle” goes unfulfilled. The world is pretty unfair, you guys.
Here’s Syfy’s description of Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen: “In each episode, Marcel and his new catering and event company will be hired by a demanding client to produce an extraordinary celebration or event. Based on the client’s requests, Marcel will dream up a theme and cuisine…” So it’s Ace of Cakes, minus the charm (and Charm City).
I wish MQK was going to be a hardcore kitchen chemistry series that explored and explained crazy techniques. But a personality-driven, feat-of-the-week Food Network Lite show? Unappetizing.
Okay, PopWatchers, you’re in charge: What kind of show would you create for your favorite former Top Chef contestant?
