PBS Announces ‘Uplifting’ Cooking Show THE GREAT AMERICAN RECIPE

By Movieguide® Staff

PBS announced their new cooking competition show, THE GREAT AMERICAN RECIPE, with THE CUBE Objective Media Group America as producers.

Author and chef Alejandra Ramos is set to host the eight-part series and bring “uplifting” kitchen content to viewer’s homes.

The show’s judges include Leah Cohen, Tiffany Derry and Graham Elliot, who will offer their feedback as home cooks from across the country prepare their favorite meals.

“When it comes to food, everyone has a favorite dish, a special memory or a unique story, and The Great American Recipe offers the perfect platform to explore the richness and diversity of our regional cultures in a deliciously fun way,” Sylvia Bugg, PBS Chief Programming Executive and General Manager, General Audience Programming, said.

“We’re excited to work with PBS and VPM on The Great American Recipe,” Jilly Pearce, Executive Vice President, Objective Media Group America, added. “It’s a cooking competition for our times, reflecting the true melting pot of American food, the passionate home cooks from across the country, and the personal stories behind their most-loved family recipes.”

Previous PBS-produced shows have upheld moral and uplifting content, including the historical drama CROSSING THE ATLANTIC and the faith-filled AMERICAN EXPERIENCE: BILLY GRAHAM documentary.

Movieguide® previously reported:

PBS debuted the BILLY GRAHAM documentary, part of the AMERICAN EXPERIENCE series, on May 17, sharing the evangelist’s life and ministry with viewers.

“BILLY GRAHAM explores the life and career of one of the best-known and most influential religious leaders of the 20th century,” according to the AMERICAN EXPERIENCE synopsis. “From modest beginnings on a North Carolina farm, Graham rose to prominence with a fiery preaching style, movie-star good looks and effortless charm. His early fundamentalist sermons harnessed the apocalyptic anxieties of a post-atomic world, exhorting audiences to adopt the only possible solution: devoting one’s life to Christ. Graham became an international celebrity who built a media empire, preached to millions worldwide, and had the ear of tycoons, royalty and presidents. At age 99, he died a national icon, estimated to have preached in person to 210 million people. BILLY GRAHAM examines the evangelist’s extraordinary influence on American politics and culture, interweaving the voices of historians, scholars, witnesses, family, and Graham himself, to create a kaleidoscopic portrait of a singular figure in the American experience.”
