It’s a New Cooking Weekend on CREATE

Posted on 03 Oct 2012

Whip up something special this weekend with AETN’s CREATE channel this Saturday! With new episodes of “Simply Ming” and “Lidia’s Italy in America,” as well as the premiere of “Martha Stewart’s Cooking School,” it’s bound to be delicious!

While, if we were following the Emily Post guide, a tenth anniversary present usually involves tin or aluminum, Ming Tsai is giving back to his audiences with 26 all-new episodes of “Simply Ming”! This season ,we’ll be learning to cook on the fly with Ming and an all-star lineup of guest chefs, including pastry chef Duff Goldman, international chef Susur Lee and San Francisco’s Chris Cosentino. You’ll also enjoy regional influences throughout the season as Ming travels to San Antonio, Chattanooga and the Azores. Start the new season with us Saturday at 11:30 a.m.

Of course, who could forget “Lidia’s Italy in America”? Longtime favorite Lidia Bastianich is back with a new season and a new book! Explore Italian culture and cuisine with her in a new episode Saturday at 12:30 p.m.

Then comes one of the ladies we associate most closely with food programming (and perfectionism), Martha Stewart. We’re excited to introduce “Martha Stewart’s Cooking School,” which will be joining our Saturday lineup at 4:30 p.m. Each episode presents a cooking master class focusing on a different cooking technique, such as braising, roasting, and butchering. And what comes first in this outstanding series? Rather appropriately, a session on eggs!

Arkansas and the American Dream
We’re all familiar with the American Dream — the idea that anyone in the United States can climb the economic ladder of opportunity — but is it still achievable? AETN continues to address poverty in the state with “A Deeper Look: The American Dream in Arkansas” and to survey the national landscape with “Dream On.” Learn more about these projects and a special night of programming after the jump.


Volunteers Like You
You can have fun, help others and support causes and organizations by sharing a bit of your spare time and volunteering! Learn how you (or your group) can help others — and yourself — by working with AETN Foundation.


Parents, PJs and Pies
Wear your PJs and join us for a fun-filled family event as we and our partners at Dropping Back in and Healthy Families of Faulkner and Conway Counties share education resources on Saturday, Aug. 20, from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.! “Parents, PJs and Pies” will feature a BBQ lunch, giveaways, fun activities and special “Llama Llama Red Pajama” gift bags.


“Back Road Barns” - Viewer Photos
Coming to AETN on Thursday, Aug. 25, “Back Road Barns” travels through rural Arkansas on a visual road trip to classic barns that have long been a part of our culture. See a preview of what you have to look forward to by scrolling through viewer photo submissions for a special segment of the AETN original film.


Save the Date for AETN Family Day
Travel back in time to the 1960s when AETN first came on the airwaves at Family Day 2016: Peace, Love and AETN! We’re celebrating our 50th anniversary with screenings of episodes of classic programs from the AETN Video Vault, opportunities to meet your favorite PBS KIDS characters and sneak peeks of what to expect next on Saturday, Sept. 24.
