Food Network: 2021–24


Fans of food television, chefs, and cooking get a plateful of advice and behind-the-scenes stories in each weekly episode of Food Network’s first official podcast.

Food blogger and TV host Jaymee Sire chats each week with chefs from Food Network shows, famous restaurants, and the world of elite cooking about making their shows and their secrets for succeeding in the kitchen.

With over 100 episodes available, listeners can find conversations with many of their favorite chefs, such as Carla Hall, who recently talked about Chasing Flavor, her new show on Max that digs into the origin of ingredients and attaching culture to a dish. Hall also advises on how to recover flavorless dishes at home.

Other episodes from this spring featured pastry chef and cake artist Ashley Holt, a.k.a. the “Sugar Monster,” on the intricacies of making cakes, and Iron Chef Jose Garces talking about secrets to winning cooking competitions, his new charity, and how he ended up in the culinary world.

Sire was previously a sports anchor on ESPN, a judge on Food Network shows including Beat Bobby Flay and Food Network Star, and a floor reporter on the first season of Iron Chef Showdown.
