If there's one thing the Food Network Kitchen team fully believes, it's that nothing brings us together quite like cooking. (Now, ask us to choose between cheese and chocolate, and you'll have a house divided — but that's a story for another day.) Over the past few weeks, as everyone's been hunkering down at home, we know you've turned to the stove for both utility and comfort. We're so glad we can be there for you with recipe ideas, cooking tips and fun things to make with your family. Cooking together always makes things better — so we wanted to get a whole group together (virtually!) for perhaps the biggest cook-along weekend we've planned yet.

This weekend (Saturday May 2 and Sunday May 3) on the Food Network Kitchen app, we'll host ten LIVE classes for our We Cook Together Weekend. All of your favorite chefs will be hosting classes (from their homes!) and taking your questions live — Alex Guarnaschelli, Bobby Flay, Michael Symon, Valerie Bertinelli, Jet Tila, Amanda Freitag, Marc Murphy, Scott Conant and Tyler Florence.

We Cook Together Weekend is also in celebration of a big announcement we made this week: Fire TV and Fire tablet owners (past, present and future!) can now get a complimentary 1-year subscription to Food Network Kitchen, courtesy of Amazon. Just open the app on your Amazon device to activate your subscription.

If you're new to the app, this weekend is the perfect time to get acquainted with us. Here's the lineup for Week Cook Together Weekend — we hope to see you there!

Saturday May 2

How does the "most epic nachos ever" sound for Saturday lunch? Alex's homemade cheese-sauce and DIY salsa come together by raiding your fridge of its odds and ends, and the result is so much more impressive than a sad-desk salad.

2 p.m. EDT: Bobby Flay makes Brunch Burgers

When you think of Bobby, you think of burgers. This one's got a fried egg and hot sauce, so stretch your Instagram posting finger before class starts.

Michael's been taking his Facebook live classes outside for the latest batch of #SymonDinners, and he continues his streak this weekend on Food Network Kitchen! This highly adaptable recipe creates grilled chicken with a sticky sauce and a crisp greens-and-beans salad on the side.

6 p.m. EDT: Valerie Bertinelli makes Peanut Butter Brownies with Salted Pretzels

Valerie takes one of her favorite snacks (peanut butter-stuffed pretzels dipped in chocolate) to the next level with these brownies dolloped with PB. Put 'em in the oven now, and they'll be cooled in time for after-dinner dessert.

8 p.m. EDT: Jet Tila makes Wonton Noodle Soup

Jet's clever, quick chicken broth and easy wonton-filling technique mean you can have this comforting classic on the table in about 30 minutes.

Sunday May 3

12 p.m. EDT: Amanda Freitag makes Salmon Fillets with Salsa Verde and Farro Salad

Yes, you can nail the perfect salmon sear — Amanda is here to make sure that you walk away from this class having perfected the skill. She tops the fish with a nutty farro (you're going to love this grain!) and a zippy salsa verde for a satisfying lunch.

2 p.m. EDT: Bobby Flay makes Lumberjack Brunch

Bobby's back on Sunday with a serious, full-plate brunch; he'll be making blueberry waffles, maple black-pepper bacon, sunny-side-up eggs and chorizo sausage. In other words, come hungry.

Gosh, we love a spatchcock chicken around here. Marc will show off the easier-than-you-think technique for a perfectly roasted bird (in half the time!), which cooks over veggies all on a sheet pan. Winner, indeed.

6 p.m. EDT: Scott Conant makes Potato Gnocchi with Easy Tomato Sauce

If you've had the urge to try your hand at homemade pasta, we suggest starting with gnocchi (no pasta roller required!). Scott's technique is easy but satisfying, and he'll show you how to make a pantry tomato sauce too.

8 p.m. EDT: Tyler Florence makes Creamy Pasta Puttanesca with Bacon and Shrimp

This pasta is another great pantry recipe — the ultimate, you might say (right, Tyler?). Briny capers, bacon, shrimp and a touch of cream make this the perfect Sunday dinner.
