Bush’s Gavin Rossdale ‘ends’ deal to host his own cookery show

Earlier this year, Bush singer Gavin Rossdale was reported to be filming a new cooking show called EAT, in which he plays host and chef to a celebrity guest who dines with him. Now it looks like viewers are getting closer to actually seeing the thing.

talking with Q102-1 this week the grunge veteran revealed he was in the final stages of working out a deal to air the show. He said the show has “been a few years in the making and I hope to be there soon.”

Watch the video at the bottom of this page. Here is Rossdale’s full statement:

I am in the middle of making an appointment to finish it. It’s this interview show where I cook for one person and just chat with them, have dinner with them and we shoot it. And I shot a few episodes as teasers with a few people. I mean, it’s been years in the making – it’s not easy, I think, doing TV – so it’s been a few years in the making, and I hope to be there soon.

It’s just an interview show and food is a great social lubricant. You sit there and eat and drink and laugh and shoot the breeze and good things come up. So it’s really about doing a show with famous people but still getting different sides of them – not work stuff and not about a record they’ve got or a book they’ve written. It’s more about them – finding out about people. Because I’m fascinated by creative people and how much I’m like them or not like them, what their process is, how they started, what inspired them, what hurt them or hindered them, or who helped them – all that kind of stuff . Because the more you listen to people, the more interesting they become. (via Blabbermouth)

In february, Deadline reported that the musician would “invite celebrities to his home in the Hollywood Hills, where he will design, prepare and serve them a three-course meal.” Some of Rossdale’s guests were said to be singer Tom Jones and comedian Jack McBrayer.

The project is not just a whim for Rossdale. Already in 2010 IMDB reported that the Bush rocker was in talks with Food Network to host his own show. And Rossdale once made a series of cooking videos for PeopleTV. (Take a tour of his kitchen in the video below and let him teach you how to make vegan bolognese.)

Roundtable Entertainment is producing Rossdale’s new show. “Roundtable are the exact partners I’ve been looking for to produce this project,” said the Bush singer. “They understand my vision and will help execute a compelling series where we get to see behind the public persona of people we know and admire for their work. This show is about connecting more deeply with them, hearing their stories, walk in their shoes..”

Rossdale added: “It’s hard to be surprised anymore, but the simplest surprises are the human revelations that occur over food and drink.”
