Through the grapevine, it appears Stella Rossa’s Jeff Mahin, the best only ex-chemist pizzaiolo with a stage at Fat Duck and a stint at L2O under his belt, will be on Bourdain’s mid-season show on ABC. Think: Nigella for the male viewers, Mahin for the female viewers. Yes, Mahin is sexier than Bourdain, did you not catch his Food Republic centerfold? The premiere episode will be on January 22, 2013 8:00 - 10:00 P.M.
