This fall, ABC will debut a daytime series for the first time in 14 years. And it's all about food.

The Chew is a new culinary talk show that features a panel of respected celebrity chefs and entertainers, similar to The View or The Talk but with a focus on food and lifestyle programming. The panel co-hosts will bring up current topics in foodie news, culinary trends, entertaining tips, recipes, and holiday plans. It's produced by Emmy winner Gordon Elliot, the name behind Paula's Home Cooking and Down Home with the Neelys.

Current co-hosts on The Chew include celebrity chef and Eataly restaurateur Mario Batali, Iron Chef favorite Michael Symon, lifestyle and entertaining expert Clinton Kelly of What Not To Wear, Season 5 Top Chef finalist Carla Hall, and Daphne Oz, author of the nationally best-selling The Dorm Room Diet.

This week, ABC has also announced The Ultimate Food Lover's Sweepstakes. One lucky winner will receive a trip for two to New York City, all expenses paid. They'll go to a taping of The Chew, eat at two of Mario Batali's restaurants (Del Posto and Lupa), and receive a $250 gift certificate to use at Mario Batali's Eataly, an authentic Italian dining and shopping experience.

Those who don't win the grand prize have a shot at winning 50 first prizes: gift bags chock full of celebrity chef cookbooks, specialty foods, and "other delicious surprises," according to the press release. View the official rules at

The Chew will premiere on Monday, September 26 at 1:00 .pm ET on ABC.
