Streaming giant Netflix has joined forces with socialite and DJ Paris Hilton to create a new show named Cooking with Paris. This comes in the wake of the forty-year-old socialite’s viral video on YouTube from January 2020 with the same name. Cooking with Paris is slated to launch globally on August 4 with six thirty-minute episodes.
Even though Paris is not a trained chef, the show will have her cooking for her celebrity friends in her home. In a tweet, Paris expressed her excitement with the words, “I’m so excited!! Next month I’m returning to television, and this time I’ll be taking over the kitchen! My new show #CookingWithParis premieres on August 4th, only on @Netflix. Stay tuned for more announcements! #ThatsHotFire #ChefParis.”
The show will have Paris as an executive producer alongside Rebecca Hertz, Eli Holzman and Aaron Saidman. Netflix also made a statement talking about how Paris Hilton will be embracing her new “domesticated side.” “She will be learning to sauté, sear, and zest,” and show off her “culinary expertise (or lack thereof), glam kitchen wardrobe and party-throwing skills with some of her fab celeb friends,” Netflix said.
Paris, who got engaged to her fiance, Carter Reum, is not new to reality TV and has a new one with Peacock titled Paris in Love. All her wedding preparations will feature in the reality TV series, and she has confirmed recently that the ceremony will be a part of the show. “We started shooting Paris in Love recently, and right now, shooting is going on in New York. We’re preparing for the dress fitting and the bachelorette party. There’s so much going on,” she revealed.
Cooking with Paris takes a different form from other cooking shows, as it does not feature a trained chef or anyone who runs restaurants or has authored cookbooks. It’s strictly a Paris Hilton affair with other celebrities. The hotel heiress has equally admitted to not being a trained chef. The show will showcase Paris learning how to make some of her favorite dishes with some of her famous friends, drawing inspiration from her viral YouTube video where she was trying to make lasagna.
Fans can expect to see Paris Hilton and her friends shopping for ingredients, trotting through grocery stores, setting things up in the kitchen and finishing the table spread. “The show might actually get Paris to learn her way around the kitchen,” Netflix said.
Paris is not new to the entertainment scene as she has starred in many television shows and films, including The Simple Life, which aired between 2003 and 2007. Describing her relationship, Paris said she’s still trying to convince Carter to appear in her TV special.
“He’s not a fan of cameras, red carpets or interviews. He’s all about his business, and I love that so much about him,” Paris revealed. “This part of our relationship makes me happy because he has clearly shown the part of me he’s interested in, which is me. Not the glamor and attention that comes with the lifestyle,” she added.
