The Live Well Network — the broadcast, online and wireless service for digital channels in local markets — announced the January 2012 premiere of its latest original series: “My Family Recipe Rocks!” Hosted by TV personality, actor and former *NSYNC star Joey Fatone, the half-hour series goes beyond the familiar celebrity chef show to highlight the stories of homegrown cooks and their homemade specialties from around the country.
Each episode has Joey Fatone knocking on the door of a person known in the neighborhood for an outstanding dish — whether it’s a killer spaghetti sauce or mouth-watering ribs, off the kitchen stove or the backyard barbeque, an old family recipe or a sumptuous new creation. Interviews with friends and family connect viewers to the cook in the spotlight, as they share heart-warming memories and other compelling anecdotes about the person behind the recipe. “My Family Recipe Rocks!” is produced by ABC owned KFSN-TV in Fresno, California. ”‘My Family Recipe Rocks!’ is about much more than cooking,” explained Peggy Allen, Vice President, Programming, the Live Well Network. “It’s about everyday people who are passionate about life, cooking and the joy that comes from making that special dish for family and friends. Joey Fatone’s down-to-earth charm, quick wit and utter delight with a great meal make him a welcome guest in their homes.”
