Martha Stewart to be part of ‘Chopped’ next season

Martha Stewart

After managing dozens of successful ventures including publishing, design, writing and several television programs, Martha Stewart could retire to her Maine estate and live a quiet retirement. But that is not the domestic doyenne’s style, so it should come as no surprise that she has found another project. Discovery Network recently announced that Stewart would become a judge on the ‘Chopped’ cooking competition program. 

This isn’t Stewart’s first foray into the ‘Chopped’ family; she served as a guest judge in 2015 on holiday episodes of ‘Chopped Junior’. She will be a regular panel judge for the upcoming season of the regular  ‘Chopped’ show on Food Network. It will be interesting to see how Stewart, who is known for being very particular about foods, will react to some of the interesting flavor combinations that come out of the contestant’s hampers. 

Reactions to the announcement on social media were mixed but generally positive. A few people suggested that she bring her VH1 co-host, Snoop Dogg, on the show with her. That would certainly change the dynamic of the program. At the same event where it announced Stewart’s new gig, Discovery Network also touted a new show to air on the Cooking Channel. It will feature “Better Call Saul” co-star Michael McKean as host, and is called “Food: Fact or Fiction”.
