Over on Eater, they’ve got some curiously coincidental news. First up are some clips from last week’s Portlandia premiere, one of which involves a trip to a fictional restaurant called Around the World in 80 Plates. Meanwhile, they also point out that NBC has announced that Curtis Stone and Cat Cora have been named hosts of Bravo’s “most ambitious production to date,” which is titled — yes — Around the World in 80 Plates. And, in case you were wondering, there is of course also a cookbook with that same title. [Eater, NBC Universal]
