Trisha Yearwood is celebrating 2016 with new episodes of the Emmy-winning® series Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, premiering Saturday, January 2nd at 10:30am ET/PT. With a trip to the Country Music Hall of Fame and down-home dinner with Reba McEntire, a Graceland visit honoring Elvis Presley with Banana Pancake Sandwiches and a Habitat for Humanity build, season seven is jam-packed with delicious food, beloved family and friends and special moments in the kitchen and on the road. The thirteen-episode season also features Trisha’s lighter take on favorite Southern dishes, game-day party food and a nostalgic “Barbie Q” with Trisha’s sister Beth.
“Trisha invites viewers not only into her kitchen this season, she also takes them on the road to visit places that hold special memories for her,” said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network. “Her passion for food and music, devotion to her family and friends and love for the South are front and center in Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, and it’s a joy to watch.”
In the premiere episode, Trisha is being honored with the ASCAP Voice of Music Award and she starts the day eating light with a Peanut Butter and Banana Breakfast Smoothie, then heads to a wardrobe fitting with a Whipped Sweet Potatoes snack. During lunch, she gets hair and makeup ready while preparing a Chicken Salad with Homemade Herbed Crackers. After the awards ceremony, Trisha indulges in a decadent Chicken Salad, Avocado and Cheddar Panini and a quick Chocolate Cake in a Mug for dessert. In the following episode airing January 9th, Trisha takes a day trip to Memphis in honor of Elvis Presley.
