Season 2 of the cooking competition series “The Great American Recipe” is set to premiere in Summer 2023, PBS announced Monday. The programmer also announced that Silvia Martinez, a home cook from California, won the series’ first season.
“The Great American Recipe” celebrates the multiculturalism that makes American food unique and iconic. The second season will once again give home cooks from around the country another opportunity to showcase their beloved signature dishes. Alejandro Ramos will once again serve as host, and chefs Leah Cohen, Tiffany Derry and Graham Elliot will return as judges. Production for Season 2 of the series, which is co-produced by VPM and Objective Media Group America, is scheduled to begin in Fall 2022.
“We’re excited to be bringing back this wonderfully warm show to PBS,” Jilly Pearce, president of Objective Media Group America, said. “It’s a unique kind of cooking competition, a celebratory series where the judges offer professional advice and the contestants root for each other and bond through the shared stories of food and family.”
Martinez, a California home cook who grew up making Mexican dishes she learned from her grandmother, aunts and mother, was revealed as the winner of Season 1 on Friday, Aug. 12. Originally from Guanajuato in central Mexico, Martinez formerly had a career as a human resources executive and university instructor before transitioning to life in the U.S. after meeting and marrying her husband.
“Congratulations to Silvia Martinez for being named the winner of the first season of ‘The Great American Recipe” Zara Frankel, director of programming and development of general audience programming at PBS, said. “The first season was a multiplatform success, attracting younger and more diverse audiences for PBS as part of our ongoing commitment to showcasing a range of voices and perspectives. We are delighted that the show resonated with viewers and are thrilled to be bringing new episodes of this fan-favorite back to audiences across the country.”
All episodes of “The Great American Recipe” are currently streaming on PBS.org and the PBS Video app.
