Before earning the most viewer votes to become the winner of Food Network Star, Season 9, Damaris Phillips told network executives that "Southern food is the food of love," and this fall she'll be able to prove that with the launch of her brand-new series, Southern at Heart, premiering Sunday, Oct. 27 at 10:30am/9:30c.

Similar to her date night-focused pilot on Star, Damaris' Southern at Heart will showcase this Kentucky-born chef's made-over Southern fare, featuring fresh twists and contemporary takes, plus offer can-do tips for cooks of every caliber. No matter if you're a single gal or guy trying to impress that special someone, one half of a new couple or a spouse in a longtime marriage, Damaris' contemporary recipes will have a place on your table, and her inspired ideas will be applicable to you.

Leave it to Damaris, of course, to serve up her half-hour in the kitchen with plenty of laughs, as this notoriously quirky and downright comedic host knows how to show off her signature wit and down-home charm while making her how-tos easy to follow.

Don't miss the premiere of Southern at Heart on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 10:30am/9:30c.
