Food Network is adding Date Plate and Food Fight to its
programming menu in second-quarter 2003.
Food Fight is billed as Beat the Clock meets Iron Chef, in
which two very different teams -- say, Hells Angels and soccer moms -- square
off in a battle to see who can best prepare a "regional specialty."
Date Plate is a new take on the blind date. It gives two contestants $50
each and the opportunity to win a date through their cooking alone -- the object
of their affections must choose between the two by their dishes without ever
having seen the chefs.
