This Saturday on Food Network, tune in to see what your favorite chefs are cooking to celebrate the fathers in their lives. First, catch up with Ree Drummond as she cooks a Tex-Mex lunch for her father-in-law Chuck and his crew, who’ve been working on the ranch. She makes slow-cooked Spicy Shredded Pork and Cheese Enchiladas, dishes that are sure to satisfy a cowboy-sized appetite. Then, Trisha Yearwood and her sister make some of their favorite guy-friendly dishes, like a loaded Taco Pizza and a decadent German Chocolate Cake. End your afternoon with a Father’s Day-themed episode of The Kitchen, where the cast brings you a special dad edition of Tool Takedown and a homemade banana-split ice cream cake.
Food Network’s Father’s Day-inspired meals continue on Sunday morning. Check out Daphne Brogdon’s new recipes like her “Dad-hattan” cocktail to toast her husband, Mark. Next, join Damaris Phillips for a brunch sparked by her grandfather’s sweet tooth, where she whips up Cinnamon Roll Biscuits with Sweet Tea Caramel and Five-Cup Ambrosia. On Sunday night, put your game face on (and grab Dad too) to get ready for three hours of back-to-back competition. Watch as four dads race down the grocery aisles on Triple G, and then stay tuned to see Food Network Star finalists tasked with making tiny and trendy food creations. Plus, you won’t want to miss the all-new sabotages on Cutthroat Kitchen.
Ree Drummond's father-in-law, Chuck, is spearheading a big fence-fixing project on the ranch, so Ree’s making a hearty Tex-Mex lunch to thank him and his crew. Her menu stars slow-cooked Spicy Shredded Pork, Cheese Enchiladas served with heaps of a homemade sauce and, for a light side dish, Chipotle Slaw. Lemon Bars top off the meal as a zesty and portable treat.
To honor the amazing men and fathers in their lives, Trisha Yearwood and her sister, Beth, whip up a few of their favorite dishes. They make their daddy’s Black Pepper Biscuits with Sausage Gravy, Garth’s Taco Pizza — topped with beef, cheese and refried beans — and for Beth’s husband, John, German Chocolate Cake with Butterscotch Frosting.
The cast of The Kitchen makes a menu full of dad-friendly meals today, like Smoked Italian Sausage Hoagies and Flank Steak Fajitas with Chimichurri and Drunken Peppers. Then, they give simple suggestions on how to take pretzels and chips to the next level, and how to make a homemade banana-split ice cream cake. Plus, a special dad edition of Tool Takedown, kitchen-themed Father’s Day gifts and, for a celebratory toast to Dad, a classic whiskey sour.
Daphne Brogdon’s husband, Mark Peel, has been working long hours at his new restaurant, so Daphne plans a special dinner to give him some TLC. First up, Grilled Spice-Rubbed Strip Steaks served with a Sweet-and-Spicy Onion Sauce. Next, Daphne makes her Two and Two Potatoes — baked twice with creamy Gruyère cheese — and Beet, Avocado and Endive Salad as delicious side dishes. Plus, she makes a special “Dad-hattan” cocktail for Mark.
Damaris Phillips invites her mother and grandfather over for a special Father’s Day brunch, where Grampy’s sweet tooth rules the menu. Damaris whips up Cinnamon Roll Biscuits with Sweet Tea Caramel, a beautiful Five-Cup Ambrosia and, for a savory dish, easy Homemade Breakfast Sausage.
Triple G has four competitors who are out to prove they’re the World’s Greatest Dad, and Guy Fieri’s son Hunter is out to prove he’s the best co-host on the show! First, the chefs must use the express lane when making a family dinner. Next, Guy tasks the dads with making a guilty pleasure — watch as the ominous Food Pyramid determines the extra ingredients. Finally, the last two dads are given only two minutes to shop for their Date Night Dinner before Guy swaps their carts!
Food Network Star finalists must always be on their culinary game, and that includes keeping up with the latest food trends. This week, they must create and photograph their own versions of tiny foods and then compose a five-course meal where each course corresponds to a buzzword. Mentors Giada De Laurentiis and Bobby Flay are joined by The Kitchen’s Sunny Anderson and Geoffrey Zakarian to decide which finalist will be sent home.
One chef pops a wheelie while making a dip. Then, someone has a near meltdown cooking on Mt. Stromboli. Finally, a chef might blow it while making waffles in a saxophone. These are definitely sabotages you won’t want to miss!
