Mindy Kaling is heading to Food Network! Hoorah! The food-loving actress is set to appear on a new show that pairs together famous chefs with celebrities for a culinary crash course.
The Mindy Project star will be matched with restauranteur Marcus Samuelsson for her episode of Star Plates where she’ll learn how to make fried chicken. We can’t wait! Mindy is always hilarious no matter who she’s with and Marcus is a ridiculously talented chef so we’re sure this is set to be an awesome episode.
Other celebrities who will appear on the first season include Minka Kelly, Colin Hanks, Erin Andrews, Busy Phillips, and Alyson Hannigan. As for the chefs, Vinny Dotolo, Susan Feniger, Michael Voltaggio, Dakota Weiss, and Geoffrey Zakarian are already signed on.
While the show is only slated for six episodes we have a feeling it will be a hit. The series premieres September 27.
