Food Network has announced a slate of new and returning cooking shows with presenters including John Torode, Tom Kerridge, Gok Wan and Michel Roux.

New series include John Torode’s Ireland. The 6×60 series produced by Cornelia Street Productions, will take Food Network and discovery+ viewers “on a cooking journey from the spectacular seafood of the Wild Atlantic Way to a classic Irish stew in a Dublin pub, and from the beef and butter of Cork’s lush farmlands to the Michelin-Starred restaurants of Galway and beyond.”

Tom Kerridge’s Sunday Lunch is produced by Bone Soup Productions. Each of the 8×30 episodes will offer a step-by-step guide to preparing Tom’s favourite meal of the week. In addition to the series, an hour-long Christmas special will air on Food Network and drop on discovery+ in time for the festive season.

Gok Wan’s Easy Asian will return for season three this June in an 8×30 production by Sidney Street Productions.

Michel Roux’s French Country Cooking will come back with season two. Produced by Outline Productions Limited and shot in the Spring will feed viewers with more of Michel Roux’s secrets of how to master rustic French cuisine. The chef will be joined in the kitchen in the South of France by his wife Giselle.

The shows were ordered by Clare Laycock, commissioned by Charlotte Reid and executive produced by Matt Reid.

Clare Laycock, SVP Planning & Insights, Head of Entertainment at Discovery UK, said: “The new slate of cooking commissions will create a unique opportunity for viewers to welcome some of their favourite UK chefs into their homes. These new and returning series will take our Food Network audiences on an indulgent and informative culinary journey across the world, blending inspirational cooking with breathtaking travel destinations.”

All shows will air on Food Network and discovery+ in the UK.
