You know what would be awful great? A show that's like a cross between Top Chef and the Millionaire Matchmaker! Well, fret not, such a thing is about to exist. Barf Yay!

Okay, to be fair, this new show, called Chef Wants a Wife (great name, guys!), is not at all like Top Chef and is JUST like Millionaire Matchmaker, except instead of millionaires a "professional matchmaker" will be pimping finding love for chefs. How awesome! Because everyone knows what great husbands chefs make. Even the press release I got about this thing said "over 70% of professional chefs are single and the married ones are far more likely to get divorced than the average couple." Why is this? Probably because the average chef doesn't have a string of bimbos women picked out for him on television. Now THAT's a recipe for love! (See what I did there? RECIPE for love? You can totally have that, Chef Wants a Wife. You're welcome.)

(Also, I'm kidding because I'm totally married to a chef and he's great! Hi honey!)

Alrighty, then. If you're a chef looking for fame and televised awkwardness and probably sex love, you can email chefcasting@cineflix.com.

  • Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar
    Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar, with chef Jason Fullilove at the helm, is in the two buildings at the pier’s entrance that used to be Beachcomber Cafe and Ruby’s Diner. Those buildings, which have been overhauled completely, reflect both the pier’s 109-year-old history and the cultural import of Malibu itself.
  • The Tasting Menu Trend
    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
  • Milo's Kitchen: A Treat Truck for Dogs
    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
