Hmmm. Oxygen has married the two guilty pleasures in a way, and supported the network show with a complementary web series on Oxygen.com. Tuesday marks the series premiere of Oxygen’s “The Naughty Kitchen with Chef Blythe Beck.”
Sex and Food, the two just go together like peanut butter and chocolate.
Apparently the trend in food programming, despite a country-wide explosion of girth and diabetes, is deep-fried cuisine de Paula Dean, with a side of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Y'all need to waddle down to the WalMart to buy you some stretchy pants after all, ya hear?
Oxygen has married the two guilty pleasures in a way, and supported the network show with a complementary web series on Oxygen.com. Tuesday marks the series premiere of Oxygen’s “The Naughty Kitchen with Chef Blythe Beck.”
Chef Beck dishes her take on American cuisine in her Dallas restaurant, Central 214, with her raucous staff.
“Recipes From The Naughty Kitchen With Chef Blythe Beck” is a new docu-series that supports “The Naughty Kitchen With Chef Blythe Beck” on Oxygen, September 22 at 10pm ET/PT.
Chef Blythe Beck's saucy restaurant staff:
Megan (General Manager of Central 214) – The multi-tasking diva in heels ·
Eric “Jimmy” (Sous chef) – Blythe’s “monkey” and go-to-guy ·
Emily (Hostess/“Door Whore”) – The carefree, spontaneous and “down for whatever” hostess ·
Curtis (Host/“Door Whore”) – The sarcastic, social, flirtatious host ·
Kerri (Event Coordinator) – The country girl who hates health food ·
Sam (Cocktail Server) – The single, social and sassy cocktail server ·
Robyn (Cocktail Server) - Central 214’s queen of cocktails ·
Calvin (Waiter) – Blythe’s favorite hunky waiter
In the first episode, viewers are introduced to Chef Blythe Beck as she “fires up” her staff and prepares for the clientele to come in to Central 214--giving viewers a glance of just how “naughty” her food really is.
Drama erupts as a food critic from the Dallas Morning News has come in to review her new menu. Not even a busy schedule of charity events and wine tastings can distract her from thinking about the critic’s looming verdict.
Viewers will not want to miss what happens when Blythe finds out what the critic had to say about her New American cuisine.
Oxygen.com’s newly launched webisodes whet viewer’s appetites with an exclusive online series--“Recipes from The Naughty Kitchen with Chef Blythe Beck” (http://naughty-kitchen.oxygen.com/)--that will bring out the naughty in everyone.
In each webisode, Chef Blythe Beck and a rotating cast member will demo some of Beck’s favorite and “dirtiest” kitchen tactics. Also, www.oxygen.com offers more “dirty little secrets” with all new photos, cast member’s blogs, naughty food quizzes and message boards.
