For the first time ever, not one but two Food Network pals dropped by The Kitchen this morning for an epic Friendsgiving celebration. Nancy Fuller, Valerie Bertinelli and all five co-hosts took turns showcasing their best-bet recipes for all of the Thanksgiving feast, from the all-important turkey to a simple drink and a dressed-up dessert. Nancy was all about one dish — a “one-dish,” to be exact. With the help of Jeff Mauro, she prepped her super-cheesy Root Vegetable One-Dish, a big-batch casserole filled with a whopping five seasonal picks — celery root, parsnips, sweet and Yukon gold potatoes, and rutabaga — baked at once in a single pan.

Ever the enthusiastic cook and co-host, Jeff Mauro isn’t shy about showing his excitement on The Kitchen, no matter if he’s prepping a recipe on set, learning the latest craft project or welcoming a new guest to the party. And when it comes to football season, he’s every bit as game for the occasion as he is any other, as he proved during today’s all-new Tailgating 2.0 episode.
Take a peek at the photo above. With his head thrown back and a fist raised in the air, Jeff exuded football fervor as he shouted, “Touchdown!” He had just tasted Katie Lee’s warming Slow-Cooker Buffalo Chicken Chili and was quick to get fans just as hyped as he was for everything else set to go down this week.
With the Summer Games just around the corner, the co-hosts of The Kitchen let their Olympic spirit shine this weekend when they featured a globally inspired feast complete with recipes from around the world (think Mexican burgers, Vietnamese hot dogs and Brazilian chocolates) — and indulged in some friendly competition. They created an over-the-top obstacle course that demanded not only balance, agility and focus but also a hearty appetite as they tried Bobbing for Doughnuts on a string.
Take a peek at the photo above from this morning’s episode. Here Jeff Mauro is enduring the Spoon Balance test, in which he’s attempting to navigate tricky pool toys while keeping the lime on the spoon in his mouth. Next up for him will be the doughnut station, and then it’s on to Marshmallow Archery in a race against the clock.
Beachside selfies, trips to the farmers market, rooftop lounging — there are seemingly countless ways to celebrate summer, but perhaps chief among them is outdoor dining. On this morning’s all-new episode of The Kitchen, the cast shared their top best recipes, tips and entertaining know-how to help you host the ultimate Summer Cookout. After his fellow co-hosts showed off how-tos for nautical napkin holders and seashell salt and pepper bowls, Jeff Mauro introduced Edible Sand Castles, made not with sand from the shore but with brightly colored gelatin instead. And the results were nothing short of impressive.
The name of the game on The Kitchen this week is Italian Classics, from an all-star antipasto platter to a fruity olive oil cake made by special guest Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli. But in true Kitchen fashion, the co-hosts will show off not just how to eat like a pro, but also how to dress up your decor inside and out of the kitchen. And when it comes to Italian designs, you need look no further than the empty wine bottles you likely have on hand.
What with the screaming alarm clock on your nightstand, the cup of coffee that always seems to run out too soon and the chilly air and dark skies awaiting you outside, mornings can be downright rough at this time of year. But breakfast doesn’t have to be a challenge — and on today’s episode of The Kitchen, the cast proved that breakfast can be easy, enjoyable and perhaps even a bit silly.
Anne Burrell stopped by to share her wake-up-worthy Crepes with Mascarpone and Chocolate with Cherry Compote, plus quite a few laughs with the co-hosts. Take a peek at the photo above of her and Jeff Mauro as they started to prep her breakfast. It seems that this duo is making the most of a sweet morning treat, with Jeff showing off a clever smile and Anne whooping it up behind the stove.
Take it from the cast of The Kitchen: You don’t have to be a kid to find the joy in Santa Claus. The jolly guy stopped by the set of this morning’s all-new episode, and the co-hosts could hardly contain themselves as he walked in with one of his reindeer, Rocket. This week’s episode theme was all about holiday cookies, and since Santa surely has a penchant for milk and cookies, he couldn’t help but be merry either.
Take a peek at the all-new photo above. Sunny Anderson, Jeff Mauro, Marcela Valladolid and Geoffrey Zakarian are seemingly overcome with excitement, while Rocket, who’s showing off a bit of unmistakable side-eye, seems less sure of what’s going down.

The Kitchen co-hosts are known for doling out countless good-to-know tips, family-favorite recipe ideas and tried-and-true culinary hacks — and having their share of fun on set. (Remember that time Jeff Mauro donned his best bodysuit and performed an impromptu floor-skating routine?) Just this morning, Jeff and Geoffrey Zakarian once again showed off their silly sides as they put the finishing touches on their banana breads. After Katie Lee declared his rum-soaked banana bread a “home run,” Jeff could hardly contain his excitement and met GZ in the kitchen for a hearty high-five.
Take a look at the photo above that captures the guys’ grinning moment. We’re challenging you, The Kitchen fans, to write your best captions (tastefully appropriate, please) for this moment in the comments below.
On Sunday’s upcoming episode of Worst Cooks in America, the remaining eight Boot Camp recruits will have to face their fears — of the fryer, that is. Tyler Florence and Anne Burrell have them cook Game Day foods with recipes that all require the use of a deep fryer. But what the recruits don’t admit to at first is that their fears go way beyond just the fryer: One has an actual phobia when it comes to condiments, and the other gets queasy at the sight of fish.
On Sunday’s upcoming episode of Worst Cooks in America, the remaining 12 Boot Camp recruits will be put to the test, but it won’t be in a way anyone has seen before. Enter Family Food, a game show geared at testing recruits’ food IQ.
In this sneak peek photo, one member of the Blue Team and one member of the Red Team are quizzed with a question. The one who buzzes in first can take a jab at the answer, which in this case has caught mentors Tyler and Anne off-guard, as Tyler is left in stiches and Anne’s left awestruck. Can you guess what was said that was so funny for the mentors?
