– Trisha Yearwood brings her family-inspired recipes and food traditions to Food Network this spring, with the premiere of the new daytime series "Trisha's Southern Kitchen" on Saturday, April 14.
The show, which airs at 10:30 a.m. Eastern/Pacific, invites viewers into the kitchen with Yearwood for her favorite meals, 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 six-episode series features Yearwood's how-to tips and techniques for down-home dishes like Daddy's Barbecued Chicken, Uncle Wilson's Famous Baked Onions, Chick-less Pot Pie and Sweet and Saltines.
"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."
Yearwood, who has won three Grammy Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards, three Country Music Association honors and had 19 top 10 singles, released her first best-selling cookbook "Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen" (Clarkson Potter) in 2008. Her second book "Cooking for Family and Friends (Clarkson Potter) followed in 2010. Both books reached the top position on the New York Times best-seller list in the Advice, How-To and Miscellaneous category.
