What Is The Chew

The Chew is a culinary TV show broadcast live from New York every weekday.  Over the next week the show will be broadcast from Epcot to celebrate The Food and Wine Festival.  This is the third year The Chew will be joining The Food and Wine Festival, which has been running for a staggering 22 years!

The co hosts Michael Symon, Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, Daphne Oz and Mario Batali have a great natural connection that really isn’t put on for the cameras.  You can really see the camaraderie amongst the co hosts and the crew.   The show includes lots of fabulous recipes that are easy to recreate at home as well as advice on restaurants, food trends and holidays.


The Chew filmed five shows in total at Epcot, with the iconic Spaceship Earth in the background.  The shows were filmed between October 4th – 6th and will air from October 9th – 13th at 1:00 p.m. daily.

Live Audience Participation

Last week I got an invite to the live TV audience.  Look out for me in the audience on Wednesday, second row and drowned rat spring to mind, thanks to the great Florida weather!

I have previously heard of The Chew, whilst covering The Food and Wine Festival over the past years, however, I have to admit to not really knowing an awful lot about it.  Now this might sound ignorant, however, I have a great excuse, I am a Brit!  Not knowing who or what The Chew is in America, is like not knowing who Gordon Ramsey or Jaimie Oliver are in Britain.

I quickly discovered The Chew is a great half hour show not only offering advice and tips as well as some amazing recipes, but also lots of fun moments.  I would describe it as talk show come cookery show, many commonly describe it as a Lifestyle Show.

The Chew certainly added to the excitement of Disney’s 22nd Food and Wine Festival and they just found themselves an extra viewer!
