Delicious New Series

Tonight's exciting new cooking competition series will premiere at 9:00pm due to special NewsHour coverage of Supreme Court abortion decision.


THE GREAT AMERICAN RECIPE is an uplifting new eight-part cooking competition that celebrates the multiculturalism that makes American food unique and iconic. Hosted by Alejandra Ramos, the series gives talented home cooks from different regions of the country the opportunity to showcase their beloved signature dishes and compete to win the national search for “The Great American Recipe.” Judges Leah Cohen, Tiffany Derry and Graham Elliot bring their professional insights and deep culinary knowledge to encourage and support the contestants along the way.

"I’m so thrilled to be hosting THE GREAT AMERICAN RECIPE on PBS,” says Alejandra Ramos, food writer, TV personality, and regular “TODAY” food and lifestyle contributor. This will be a joyful competition that’s all about celebrating the delicious and diverse stories, flavors and people who make up the rich culinary tale of our beautiful nation. I have always understood American food to be an ever-evolving conversation between the flavors and recipes of our ancestors—wherever they may be from, the influence of our geography and neighbors, and the unique ideas and creativity each of us brings to the kitchen. I’m honored to join judges Leah, Tiffany and Graham, and all the talented contestants, as we come together to tell the story of the many delicious ways we Americans eat and cook."
