For Immediate Release
TORONTO, August 16, 2017 – This fall, Food Network Canada’s schedule is sweet, savoury and stuffed full of brand-new primetime premieres, cut-throat culinary competitions and indulgent daytime programming. Beginning August 28, viewers can look forward to new series and specials every day of the week, including I Hart Food, Beat Bobby Flay All-Star Takeover, Guy’s Family Road Trip, Texas Cake House, Dessert Games, Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition, and returning favourites including Barefoot Contessa, Giada in Italy, Ginormous Food, and more.
Lights, camera, cooking! Weeknights on Food Network Canada are full of fierce competitions, sizzling showdowns and sweet treats beginning with new four-part special Dessert Games premiering on August 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. In this new series, Guy Fieri hands over his grocery store’s keys to the ace of cakes Duff Goldman, who challenges four talented pastry chefs to shop, prepare and plate three amazing confectionary creations. The last chef remaining will win a sweet shopping spree worth up to $10,000. Next is the new series Texas Cake House, which highlights cake artist Natalie Sideserf and her husband Dave’s most intricate, over-the-top and edible creations starting August 28 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. On August 29, Chopped returns with more heart-racing competitions at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
The battle between home cooks and culinary professionals begins on August 30, with a new season of Cooks vs. Cons premiering at 9 p.m. ET/PT. At 10 p.m. ET/PT, Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition returns for a new season serving up serious star power. Food masters Anne Burrell and Rachael Ray are back and leading teams of celebrity recruits through a rigorous culinary boot camp, hoping to improve the skills of stars Nora Dunn, Carmen Electra, Erik Estrada, Vivica A. Fox, Perez Hilton, Carson Kressley, Sean Lowe and Melissa Peterman. They only have eight weeks to turn these kitchen disasters into kitchen masters, and in the end, one celebrity will earn $25,000 for the charity of his or her choice. Culinary credibility is on the line in Beat Bobby Flay All-Star Takeover, a brand-new four-part special premiering August 31 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. This takeover sees grill master Bobby Flay battle his closest celebrity chef friends including Anne Burrell and Alex Guarnaschelli.
When the weekend rolls around, viewers are treated to delicious daytime programming. Beginning September 9 at 10 a.m. ET/PT, Giada De Laurentiis continues her adventure exploring her birthplace and its delicious cuisine in the second season of Giada in Italy. Also returning for a second season is Ayesha’s Home Kitchen, where Ayesha Curry shares more fuss-free homestyle recipes perfect for any occasion starting September 9 at 11 a.m. ET/PT. Kicking off Sundays, succulent new episodes of Barefoot Contessa with Ina Garten premiere September 10 at 10 a.m. ET/PT, followed by Valerie’s Home Cooking which returns for another season of homemade goodness beginning at 11 a.m. ET/PT.
On weekend primetime, it’s all about big eats and even bigger personalities, beginning with Guy’s Family Road Trip premiering September 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. In this new series, Guy Fieri’s family boards a monster RV joining him on the search for great food, big adventure, iconic locations and quirky characters. Up next is a new season of Ginormous Food premiering September 1 at 10 and 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. Food-fanatic Josh Denny continues his quest to find the biggest and tastiest foods including a five-foot pizza, an eight-pound barbecue sandwich and a burrito too big to wrap his arms around. Come September 1 at 11 p.m. ET/PT, new series I Hart Food delivers a large helping of food and fun. YouTube sensation Hannah Hart has more than five million followers on social media, a killer sense of humour, a passion for food, and she’s taking a flavour-filled journey to discover incredible foods and the people who make them.
