Premiere of new Cooking show All Mixed Up™ received well from press both locally and nationally

All Mixed Up™ the newest show from the producers of Designing Spaces™ is making waves in the media.

The press is taking notice of the new reality cooking show All Mixed Up airing on Lifetime from the producers of Designing Spaces.  The show airs in a 3 part series format, with each series highlighting a different culinary academy and using the school’s students as the contestants.

Hosted by TV personality and chef extraordinaire Ralph Pagano, All Mixed Up is a unique take on the typical cooking show format.  The Show takes 3 students through a 3 day battle to be crowned “All Mixed Up Champion”.  Using secret ingredients chosen by some of America’s top brands such as Formaggio Cheese, Nestle® and Kozy Shack, the students must create a complete 3 course meal for each of the 3 brands highlighted in each show.

Pagano uses his vast experience as a professional chef, television cooking competition competitor and host to educate, coach and challenge the students while throwing some wrenches in the works to keep them on their toes.

“Cooking School teaches technique…but it can take a lifetime to develop the right palate” said Pagano in a recent feature about the show in the Miami Herald.

Features and reviews have been coming from all over, including the Miami Herald, The New York Post, The Star Tribune and many more. 

Series 1 may be finished but the heat is returning as O2 Media and the producers from Designing Spaces have just finished casting and are getting ready to shoot at Lincoln Culinary Institute in West Palm Beach, FL with 3 new hopefuls and 3 more top American brands challenging the students with their chosen ingredients.

The final episode of the first series airs next Friday September 21st at 7:30AM (ET/PT) on Lifetime.  To view past episodes and an interactive recipe book online visit
