Food Network Kitchen has launched five new Tastemade series on its Food Network Kitchen app, including one that’s “part baking show, part advice column.” Just Ask the Baker is a first of its kind, interactive baking show hosted by actress Meghan Rienks who answers viewers’ questions giving commentary and advice.
“We are so excited to introduce our Food Network Kitchen users to Meghan Rienks with Just Ask the Baker,” said Debra Puchalla, SVP, Digital Programming and Video at Food Network. “Heading into the holiday season, we know this will bring joy to people’s kitchens and laughter to their homes, all while sparking ideas for delicious desserts for all to enjoy.”
“Discovery is a long-time partner of Tastemade, so this is a natural continuation of our strategic partnership, which we could not be more excited about,” says Larry Fitzgibbon, Co-Founder & CEO of Tastemade. “This project leverages multiple parts of our business working together – the creation and production of a new series, licensed original content, and marketing & advertising of the content living on the Food Network Kitchen app. We’re thrilled to work with a partner that recognizes and leverages everything that’s unique about us as a company in order to capture a younger, millennial and gen-z audience.”
