There is no more cooking on the FN, it's either traveling or some psico babel. I kept basic 2 for cable just to get FN, but looks like I'm going to cansel it pretty soon here. It is waiste of money.

Well, it was public at the auditions. I guess there's a difference between public and broadcast? They did say, as Charlie pointed out, he's no longer doing ICA. Cat doesn't and likely a Morimoto show wouldn't get ratings in America because of the language barrier. They also subtitle him, even on the last Next ICA they had him subtitled.

With no shows and him off of ICA, I'd say that's kind of confirmation that they've parted ways.

Was Mario Batali "fired" from food network?

i recently read that FN canceled one of his shows (molto mario) and that he disagreed and said he would NOT do iron chef.

then, they said, "later."

any truth to this, or am i way late with old news?

Food Network, I think is in kohutz with restaurant business, and they don't want people to cook any more. They want us to go out more. So they are getting rid off good chefs and brink some bother shows for people to watch. That is how urban legends start, btw.

I know for sure that the Food Network did not renew his or Sara Mouton's contracts, and that they are no longer on. As for the Iron Chef thing...I don't know.
I doubt that either one of them is hurting for money, if they have any sense.

I like Sara, but never cared for her show. I did watch Mario, and learned a LOT from him, but he has always had an over-bearing attitude that is quite annoying.

They did the same thing to David Rosengarten way back when foodtv was only a year or two old. Anyone remember his show, "Taste"? He was the Alton Brown of his time.
