Grammy-winning® music superstar and best-selling author of two cookbooks, Trisha Yearwood is back in the kitchen with more family-inspired recipes, cherished stories and visits from family and friends with new episodes of Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, premiering Saturday, October 20th at 11am ET/PT on Food Network. This weekend, she’ll also participate in a culinary demonstration at the Food Network New York City Wine and Food Festival. Next week, she’ll stir up some signature dishes on The Today Show (10/15), The View (10/15), Fox & Friends (10/16) and The Chew (10/17), among others to “dish” about what to expect from Season 2.
Shot in Oklahoma, the themed shows range from Southern Brunch and Sunday Supper to Halloween and Thanksgiving traditions to tips on lightening up down-home meals while maintaining their Southern flavor. Joined by her closest family members and friends, including husband Garth Brooks, Trisha celebrates the best of Southern hospitality with delicious food, beloved childhood memories and beautiful music in the 13-episode season.
In a special episode, Garth joins Trisha to cook the dishes they love making together, including Black Bean Lasagna and Miss Mickey’s Peanut Butter Balls. The new season includes several holiday-themed episodes, with a Halloween costume surprise from Allie and August Brooks, a Yearwood Thanksgiving where Trisha reveals the No Baste, No Bother Roasted Turkey recipe passed down from her mother, and a Holiday Cookie Swap Party. She dedicates a show to lighter dishes, including Corn Flake Chicken and Apple Ambrosia, that keep the Southern flavor without the calories. Trisha’s sister Beth, niece Ashley and unforgettable Uncle Wilson also visit, as do her college roommate Tina, makeup artist Jennifer and workout buddy Billie. Trisha also sings an unforgettable version of one of her biggest hits in an emotional wedding shower episode and hosts Preacher Leonard Pirtle, who married Trisha and Garth, for a can’t-miss Sunday Supper.
