BREAKING NEWS: More of 5 Ingredient Fix!

by in View All Posts, April 30th, 2009

Hopefully everyone out there in TV land caught the debut of our favorite dog Newman on this weekend’s episode of 5 Ingredient Fix, and everyone understands why we’re so excited about our newest star.  Our newest star Claire Robinson, of course!  I’m happy to be the very first one to report that we’ve picked up the show for 13 more episodes of 5 Ingredient Fix! You heard it here first!

So now that it’s clear that everyone wants more Claire the big work begins – how does she go about developing her recipes?  Well, every Food Network chef has their own way of working, but no matter what, every recipe has to be tested multiple times to make sure it’s absolutely perfect.  Claire tests her recipes at least three times and usually more, which as you can imagine takes quite a bit of time.

Recipes should also get tested with different equipment – electric stoves and gas stoves, convection ovens and regular ovens, non-stick pans and regular pans – the list goes on and on.  You just can’t test a recipe enough.  It’s a good thing that all of Claire’s recipes require no more than five ingredients each, because that’s a lot of food!

So be sure to catch the current episodes airing on Saturday mornings at 9:30 AM, and check back here to find out when the next batch of episodes will come along.
