Olympic Figure Skater Brian Boitano in a New Food Network Series

20090721-brianboitano.jpgUsually when Brian Boitano and ice are mentioned in the same sentence, it doesn't involve snow-cones and gelato. But the figure skater, who won a gold for the U.S. at the 1988 Winter Olympic Games, will have a daytime Food Network series starting August 23 at 1 p.m. called What Would Brian Boitano Make?

In every unpredictable episode, Brian hosts get-togethers at his San Francisco home. With a humorous and knowledgeable approach to cooking, Brian puts his unique spin on irresistible dishes like Chicken Paella Burgers, Pear and Almond Crostata, Crab and Avocado Crostini, and Bourbon Bacon Apple Tarts.

It seems like they got show-naming inspiration from a song in the film South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.
