Chef Paris Hilton “doesn’t really know how to cook” but will on TV anyway

Paris Hilton, the original influencer, is taking her catchphrase "that's hot" to a literal level, with the news that the socialite, musician, model, and entrepreneur will be launching a Netflix cooking show, Cooking With Paris, which is set to be released on August 4.

You're probably thinking, "wait, Paris cooks?", to which I will say, no, she actually doesn't really. But when has that stopped her before? Variety says that she is “is not a trained chef and doesn’t really know how to cook,” but will learn with the help of some celebrity friends. It's all in the enthusiasm anyway, right?

According to Variety, Hilton will "invite her celebrity friends into her kitchen, as she navigates new ingredients, new recipes and exotic kitchen appliances." She will embark it all, traversing the grocery store, cooking the meals, and even working across table scapes. According to Netflix, Hilton will embrace her “very newly domesticated side,” while she “learns 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.” What a ride it will be! We know you can do it, Paris.

"I’m so excited!!  Next month I’m returning to television, and this time I’ll be taking over the kitchen!" Hilton wrote via Instagram. "Stay tuned for more announcements! Comment below with what dishes you want me to make."

Cooking With Paris is inspired by her YouTube video of the same name, which went viral with over five million views in January 2020, where Hilton makes a lasagna at home in her elaborate kitchen, with her tiny chihuahua, Diamond Baby - who Hilton claimed was "killing it" in her Chanel apron - as her sous chef. At one point, she realises she sadly has to grate her own mozzarella, to which she claims, "life could be worse", a true inspiration! If the YouTube video is anything to go off, we will be watching every minute of the six episode series.

With a rhinestone encrusted spatula, a handful of extravagant outfits, and an "any bitch can cook" attitude, joining her in the kitchen will be names like OG bestie, Kim Kardashian West, who, in the trailer says she "spoke too soon" after a series of head nods and “mmhmms,” Demi Lovato, Kathy and Nicky Hilton, Saweetie, Lele Pons and more.

Hilton will serve as an executive producer, along with Aaron Saidman, Eli Holzman and Rebecca Hertz. Cooking with Paris hails from The Intellectual Property Corporation, an Industrial Media company.
