The cooler weather means more time in the kitchen, and all of us could use a little inspiration now and again. This month The Food Network has premiered a new show that focuses on not just the food, but friendship and family. Ayesha’s Homemade will not only inspire you to get back in the kitchen and cook, but might give you some fun ideas to help bring your family back around the table. The show’s first episode aired last week, but we can expect plenty of more great recipes and episodes from this new show!
About Ayesha’s Homemade:
Ayesha Curry brings family and friends together to celebrate as she cooks up her favorite recipes, in new series Ayesha’s Homemade, premiering Saturday, October 22nd at 12pm ET/PT on Food Network. A cookbook author, super-foodie, mother of two, social media maven and loving wife to NBA superstar Stephen Curry, Ayesha’s life can get hectic corralling her two young daughters and juggling her career and marriage, but she always has time for a delicious meal. Join Ayesha through six half-hour long episodes as she takes viewers inside her home, showcasing quick and tasty recipes perfect for any gathering.
“Ayesha’s fun and affectionate personality along with her creativity in the kitchen and food-sensibility make her a perfect fit to join the Food Network lineup,” said Didi O’Hearn, Senior Vice President Programming, Food Network & Cooking Channel. “In Ayesha’s Homemade viewers are treated to virtual courtside seats as she shares good times and great recipes at home with family and friends.”
Traditions are big in the Curry house, but since moving to the west coast and starting a family, Ayesha wants to start some traditions of her own and what better way to start than with food. In the premiere episode, Stephen has his friends over who spring on Ayesha that they are expecting dinner and not just the delicious Maple Bacon Popcorn snack she has prepared. Ayesha has to think on her feet and come up with a meal plan fast. Lucky for her she’s got some built in help from these boys to prepare a White Chocolate Bread Puddingusing leftover croissants, and Ayesha knows she will win them over with her Beer Bourbon Splash; but will she push the vegetables too far with her Cauliflower Hot “Wings” and Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers? In another episode Ayesha and some close friends get their husbands to take the kids for the day so they can take some much needed time for themselves and indulge in a delicious, decadent and grown up brunch together. Starting with a light Bloody Mary topped with Brown Sugar Bacon, Ayesha also prepares Citrus Shrimp Salad, Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms, and Spinach Feta Rolls. To finish off the day of indulging, Ayesha surprises the girls with a twist on her chocolate-y childhood favorite, Skillet S’mores. Holiday meals have always been important to Ayesha and her family, and this year Ayesha and Stephen’s parents visit them at home to celebrate. Ayesha’s dad John and father-in-law Dell join Ayesha in the kitchen to make the cheesiest Mac and Cheese, Creamed Cornbread, and of course Southern Mustard Greens, but when it comes to the turkey, will it be double the trouble, or double the fun?
