Celebrity chef, restaurateur and author Marcus Samuelsson has joined ABC’s cooking competition show The Taste as its newest mentor.
Chef Samuelsson joins chef and television personality Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson and chef and author Ludo Lefebvre as they begin production on the show’s second season.
The Taste is an exhilarating two-hour cooking competition program that puts 16 culinary competitors — from professional chefs to home cooks alike — into a pressure cooker of a kitchen where one blind spoonful of their culinary creations are served to four of the world’s most notable chefs and food experts to determine who stays and who is eliminated from the competition.
“Marcus is a world-renowned chef with an infectious passion for food,” said Executive Producer Chris Coelen. “He’s a perfect fit to work with and compete against Anthony, Nigella and Ludo on Season Two of The Taste.”“I am thrilled to be joining The Taste,” said Chef Samuelsson. “I’m looking forward to working alongside such an esteemed group of culinary figures and discovering new talents.”

According to recent press reports, Second Avenue eatery Milk Burger‘s menu, design features and photo of its signature burger have been blasted for their strong similarities to Shake Shack.
Ottavia Bourdain, wife of food personality Anthony Bourdain, tweeted last week that she had forsaken her beloved Shack Burger for Milk Burger.
“Tonight I’m cheating on the love of my life Shake Shack and ordering from Milk Burger. They deliver and I’m lazy,” she wrote Aug. 1.
“Shake Shack is still my husband but Milk Burger can be my booty call.”
Milk Burger is located at 2056 Second Ave. between 105th and 106th streets. (212) 360-1988
