Watch: Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg Serve Up New Cooking Show
The world’s foremost domestic goddess is teaming up with his high-ness for one of the most unique cooking shows in television history.
In a move that bridges everything from generations to musical genres, Martha Stewart, 75, and rapper Snoop Dogg, 44, are teaming up for a cooking show called Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party, during which the hosts “will invite celebrity friends over for a half-baked evening of cocktails, cooking, conversation, and fun where nothing is off limits.”
Watch the first trailer:
In a recent press release, Stewart said that, “our dinner party, we will exemplify America’s fascination with food, entertaining and celebrity … [and] redesign the traditional food competition shows in a new, different and very funny way.”
The first episode airs Nov. 7 – and rumours are, there will even be a slumber party at some point.
On the surface Stewart and Snoop, born 30 years apart, seem like the ultimate odd couple. The New Jersey-born Stewart gained fame by building a conservative but elegant recipe and home décor empire while the California-bred Snoop rose to prominence as a hip hop headliner famous for his love of both women and smoking pot.
But this east coast-west coast connection is rooted in real-life mutual friendship and respect. Snoop hit the kitchen with Stewart on her popular television show Martha Stewart Living in 2008 and the pairing has since been spotted everywhere from the Comedy Central celebrity roasts (where they packed a one-two punch against Canuck teen idol Justin Bieber) and last month on the TV game show $100,000 Pyramid.
“My homegirl, Martha and I have a special bond that goes back,” Snoop said in the same press release. “We’re gonna be cooking, drinking and having a good time with our exclusive friends. Can’t wait for you to see how we roll together!”
The pairing clearly have a natural chemistry and, if Stewart knows what Snoop’s talking about in the kitchen when he says a recipe calls for a “pizzle of flavoured sizzle shizzle,” then we’ll know this duo is truly meant to be.
