  1. I'll watch.

    I've always liked her and her cookbook looked good but just not my style of cooking.

    Plus if they film at her house, bonus! I'm sure she has the ultimate kitchen :D

      That's what I'm wondering, if it will be like Pioneer Woman, or similar type lifestyle type show. I'll probably watch it for the kitchen, too!

    2. If she sings on the show, I'll watch it. If Garth makes an appearance, then I'll probably not pay much attention.

      1. Not me. Nope, nope nope. I got over (not-food oriented-) celebs. RIGHT when Gwyneth Paltrow's exercise in narcissim came out. (Thanks BA!)

          And I thought I was alone in the world for rolling my eyes at Gwyneth's book. The waif had such horrible eating and nutritional habits that she gave herself osteopenia in hear early 30's with vitamin D levels in the gutter. She's publicly admitted to doing "cleanses" crazy diets of the same ilk. I was a bit taken back that she was pretentious enough to release a cook book.

          1. re: alkonost

            I guess when you are a rich celeb, you can write a book on any subject and profess to be an expert. Many people will rush to buy the book just because of who she is. I don't see how she could be very knowledgeable on the subject of cooking with all the other things she's involved in.

        2. Poo! It's filmed in Nashville, not her personal kitchen. It sounds like Barefoot Contessa/Pioneer Woman with the themed shows.

          Oh well.


          Music superstar and best-selling cookbook author 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 14th at 10:30am ET/PT.

          The series invites viewers into the kitchen with Trisha 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 six-episode series features Trisha’s unique 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.

          “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.

          “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.”

          Trisha Yearwood, who has won three Grammy Awards®, two Academy of Country Music Awards, three Country Music Association honors and had 19 top-ten 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 #1 position on the New York Times best-seller list in the Advice, How-To and Miscellaneous category.

            It is shot in her NASHVILLE HOME...she has more than the Ok house.

            1. re: LaLa

              We'll see. The article just says it's shot in Nashville, not that it's shot in her Nashville home.

              Most FN shows are shot in staged/rented locations. Paula, Ina and Pioneer Woman are 3 of the few who have kitchens built specifically to shoot their show.

              1. re: Manassas64

                I didnt pull that out of read it is in her Nashville Home Kitchen in Country Weekly.
                Edit to add: her Nashville Home has actually been used at least twice I remember.... in a cooking special for GAC and when Paula Deens designer Brandon Branch redid her music room for a special.

                  First line, 4th paragraph...
                  "Throughout the series, Yearwood will not only share special recipes, but will also give an inside look at life in her home kitchen as she shares her favorite meals, nostalgic stories and even visits from family and friends."

                  "After we married, I thought about selling it," she says of her Tennessee home. "But when you find a place that makes you feel peaceful, you don't get rid of it."

                  1. re: LaLa

                    I looked at some pictures from a Country Living spread, as well as a behind the scenes shot from the cooking show, looks like the same kitchen to me, in her Nashville home.

                    1. re: wyogal

                      Didn't Ms. Yearwood appear on the Showdown btwn Bobby Flay and Ree Drummond at the Drummond home-studio? This was all before Ree and Trish announced their own cooking shows on FN...
