Discovery Networks International contacted me about appearing on Mission Menu, a restaurant makeover program that will premiere on TLC International in 2012. The 30-minute series is a co-production with nuvoTV that follows three international chefs as they overhaul existing restaurants. The self-described “United Nations of chefs” will cook up delicious drama while helping restaurants go from simmering to sizzling with exciting new culture-based dishes.
