Premiere Alert: Celeb Chefs & IKEA® Help "Fix This Kitchen"

Two things we love: tips from chefs and IKEA® kitchen renovations. That's why we can't wait for the launch of Fix This Kitchen. Each episode will feature a world-famous celebrity chef helping to design and renovate a kitchen for an unsuspecting homeowner, utilizing durable countertops, high-quality cabinetry, and energy-efficient appliances—exclusively from IKEA. The six episode makeover series kicks off this Saturday at 10:00am ET/PT as part of A&E's Saturday morning lineup, The Big Fix.

In Saturday's premiere episode, George Perrier from Le Bec Fin, one of Philadelphia's most-celebrated chefs, teams up with show host Nicole Facciuto to create a high-quality complete IKEA kitchen for homeowners Brian and Shawna. The big challenge here is that the homeowners love to entertain and cook for large groups, but their space doesn't allow for it. Next week we'll post some before and after pictures to show you how Fix This Kitchen made it happen.

Mark your calendar for the second episode too. Next week Lidia Bastianich, one of the country's most well-known Italian chefs, will turn an enclosed, out-dated kitchen into a bright and open family friendly space.
