Anne Burrell's Secrets of a Restaurant Chef Canceled

Anne Burrell Secrets of a Restaurant ChefAccording to Anne Burrell on Twitter, the Food Network decided not to bring back Secrets of a Restaurant Chef for another season.  However, she said that there "WILL BE another 'in the kitchen' show," so we will have to keep a look out for that.  Also, they are casting for Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell as well as Worst Cooks in America, so you will still be able to get your Anne Burrell fix.  I guess the Food Network needed to make room for all the Deen's and Triple D reruns.

Reminder that Wedding: Impossible airs tonight at 10pm, and will show you details of Robert Irvine and Gail Kim's wedding.

  1. I was really hoping they cancelled chef wanted. Not a bad show, just a bad host. Anne adds nothing to the show. It could be hosted by any one and it would be tha same show.

    Glad to see Secrets finally got the axe, the less time Anne stays in front of the camera with her poor food hygiene and sanitation practices, the better.

  2. Are they crazy?  Anne's show is the best show on Food Network with the most reliable, fabulous, flavorful receipes, and the most entertaining.  Are they crazy???

  3. You must be watching a different show.  Anne is washing her hands and teaching about food sanitation practices every 10 seconds.

  4. That's really a shame.  She seems to be one of the few real chefs on the network.  Not to mention, I have a thank you for coming bowl and have perfected numerous recipes that call for as she calls it, BIG MEAT.

  5. Seriously? As a private chef, it's the only show I actually learned something when I watched it. My cable company doesn't offer The Cooking Channel as an option and unfortunately Food Network shows are clearly NOT geared for people in the field. I'm confident I could out cook any other host on Food Networks line up other than the judges on Chopped or competitors on ICA. I hate Food Network and their cheesy line up. Are you kidding me Jamie Deen?? Really? That network sucks

  6. I cannot believe what has happened to the food network since its inception.... They used to have professional chefs like Batali and Florence and lagasse and now we're reduced to "perky" little home cooks who have little for us to learn and/or aspire to. Chef Anne was the last of the shows worth watching. Too bad, I used to like food network.

  7. I'm curious why Burrell never uses pepper in any of her recipes?  I see TV chefs using ground pepper all the time,,  but it seems like Burrell only uses copious amounts of salt in her recipes.

  9. Are you kidding, she was great. I liked her show, and she was clean. Her dishes take skill....like the ones needed in the business.

  10. The foodnetwork is for everyday, people, good recipes....not for professional.
    I love the Paula and her sons, her meals are delicious and easy, like Rachel Ray.and Giada, any just all of them. The competition shows make me queasy. Lol too much stress, they take the fun out of it.

  15. I love your show, Anne and you as a chef!! I have learned more from you than any other chef or cook and you make it seem so simple. I hope you NEVER leave the cooking shows. What a loss that would be! Love your personality! YOU ROCK! Plus you remind me so much of my best girlfriend in the whole wide world!-------they
    Better not axe you!

  16. Used lots of Anne's recipes and they were spot on. Food safety and sanitation is a huge part of cooking safely - so to the person who commented about too much of that - sure wouldn't want to eat your cooking. I'll miss the show and Anne!

    Anne simply doesn't like the taste of black pepper, though she has used it in some of her recipes, when it is necessary.

    As for the salt she uses, I believe she has stated that it is Kosher salt, not table salt. Kosher salt is of a coarser grain and imparts less actual salt in a "pinch" than does table salt, which consists of fine regular crystals. When salting recipes with table salt, one should use much less than if one were using Kosher salt.
