Cookbook author and Grammy winner Trisha Yearwood brings her family-inspired recipes to Food Network this spring, with the premiere of Trisha’s Southern Kitchen.
The Owasso resident stars on a six-episode show set to premiere 9:30 a.m. April 14th, the network announced Wednesday.
“For me, cooking is very connected to my family and friends,” said Yearwood. “Every recipe on the show carries wonderful memories with my loved ones and I can’t wait to share my meals, stories and family photos with Food Network viewers.”
The series invites viewers into the kitchen with Yearwood for her favorite meals, nostalgic stories and visits from family and friends. Themed shows range from preparing traditional dishes from her childhood to planning a baby shower and a family reunion barbecue to offering tips on lightening up standard Southern recipes.
Shot in Nashville, the series features Yearwood’s tips for down-home dishes like Barbecued Chicken, Uncle Wilson’s Grilled Onions, Chick-less Pot Pie and Sweet and Saltines.
“Trisha’s best known as a music legend, but her talents don’t stop there. She’s a passionate and talented cook, whose down-to-earth style, winning recipes, and southern hospitality will charm and inspire viewers,” said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President Programming, Food Network.
Yearwood is the best-selling author of two cookbooks.
“Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen” was released in 2008, and “Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood” was released in 2010. Both books reached No. 1 on the New York Times’ best-seller list in the advice, how-to and miscellaneous category.
