Look out Jamie Oliver!

There’s another chirpy Brit joining the Food Network lineup. Danny Boome’s new series Rescue Chef will premiere on March 1 at noon ET/PT.

We haven’t seen a preview yet, but this show seems geared to kitchen newbies. Boome will rescue viewers across America from “culinary meltdown,” the Food Network tells us.

We’ll see Danny help a schoolteacher recreate her wedding’s short ribs recipe for an anniversary dinner and watch Danny help a family perfect Grandma’s Mexican enchiladas.

British-born Danny Boome runs a cooking school and has hosted cooking shows in Canada and the UK, including UKTV Food’s Local Food Heroes which spotlighted local purveyors from across England. We hear he was once a semi-pro hockey player too.

We haven’t seen his previous shows? Have you?

Men who cook = sexy. Accents * men cooking = food network hit?
