NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A new television show featuring New Orleans chef Isaac Toups is slated to launch soon.
The show is dubbed Kitchen Takeover and will air on the Food Network. It will feature Toups traveling around the country and helping failing restaurants and food-related businesses to get back on track.
In a news release, Toups invited people to watch the "big friendly Cajun try to help some good people out of some sticky situations."
The first show airs Saturday, Aug. 3.
Toups is the chef and owner of Toups Meatery and Toups South. He also has a cookbook celebrating his love of the Cajun culture and cuisine of his childhood.
