Rachael Ray Is Bringing 30 Minute Meals Back to the Food Network!

Look for Rachael Ray (and her 30 Minute Meals) in April 2019!

The iconic chef and Food Network star Rachael Ray announced yesterday that her show 30 Minute Meals has been picked up for 30 brand-new episodes! The show was popular on the Food Network from 2001 and 2012. But starting on April 1—she’ll be back.

What Can We Expect?

Rachael announced that viewers can expect the same “cool vibe” from back in the day, but “for a whole new generation.” She didn’t clue us in to any specifics about the new recipes, but Rachael also shared in her Instagram announcement that the recipes will be “fun, fresh food you’ve never seen on the daytime show.” How exciting!

Since 2006, Rachael has hosted her daytime show Rachael Ray on CBS, which was recently renewed for a 14th season. That’s no surprise because of how wildly popular her brand is—and how delicious her recipes are.

There’s Something New, Too

30 Minute Meals is going to be digital-friendly. The premiere episode on April 1 will stream live on all Food Network’s platforms, including Facebook Live. The show will also have a digital companion, where Rachael will share bonus cooking tips and kitchen insights. So there’s even more to look forward to!

The home chef shared with Variety: “I couldn’t be more excited to bring 30 Minute Meals to a whole new generation of fans. We are rolling deep this time around, proving to everyone that, yes, these are really meals you can cook in 30 minutes or less. And our show will now be part of Food Network’s on-demand offering, so our friends can actually binge-watch their meals.”

We’re looking forward to it!
