Cooking Channel Will Feature Mo Rocca, Julia Child


Mo Rocca
From Daniel Maurer, Grub Street New York: When we last checked in with Scripps’s Food Network spinoff the Cooking Channel, we were disappointed to see so much recycled British and Canadian content (sadly none of it included Marco Pierre White’s latest venture into reality TV, Kitchen Burnout). Now the network lineup has been released, and among the surprises is a show hosted by Mo Rocca. Plus, reruns of Julia Child and Galloping Gourmet. And over on the Food Network, Scott Conant will host a Restaurant Wars–esque show and Tyler Florence will oversee food-truck battles. See the rest of the shows, premiering May 31, below.
