Jeannie added, “I’m so grateful for our family. Family includes everybody around you—blood related or not—that have just been supportive and celebratory of all the things that you’ve gone through. That is something to never take for granted…We’re just going to have family fun.”
Which is what’s on the menu in her new, uh, appetizing gig as the host of America’s Test Kitchen: The Next Generation. In the show, 11 home cooks come together in hopes of becoming the newest America’s Test Kitchen cast member.
“I love, love, love food,” Jeannie said. “I love the way food brings people together. I love the way culture gives food its flavor and this show scoured America for the best home cook that could not only give us awesome recipes we haven’t heard of, but could also talk about their cooking, teach us about their cooking, entertain us while cooking. It was definitely the most exciting, thrilling show I’ve ever done.”
