Settle in each weekend to watch your favorite shows in one binge-worthy format. Each Saturday and Sunday, Create airs a programming marathon centered around a theme — a holiday, a country, a particular food, even a single show. All the excitement of a marathon without leaving your couch!

The This Old House team install a patio, GardenSmart's pros put the finishing touches on a landscape installation and Growing a Greener World shares tips for creating a productive garden in harmony with nature. And P. Allen Smith (pictured) transforms his outdoor living space into one worthy of a “staycation” — complete with chickens!
June 8 & 9Double your pleasure this weekend as Create chefs crash each other’s shows. Ming Tsai welcomes Jacques Pepin, Lidia Bastianich, Rick Bayless and Sara Moulton into his kitchen. Jacques Pepin also hosts Rick Bayless to make a Mexican-themed menu. And Martha Stewart and Julia Child join forces to bake a three-tiered wedding cake. Lidia also stops by The Jazzy Vegetarian studio for an Italian cooking class.
Men of Leisure
June 15 & 16Spend Father’s Day with the men of Create— chefs Jacques Pépin and Ming Tsai, world traveler Joseph Rosendo (pictured), barbecue brethren Steven Raichlen and craftsman Eric Gorges. From making memories with family in the kitchen to embarking on a California adventure to learning the basics of guitar-making, this marathon has something for every type of weekend warrior!
June 29 & 30Make your Fourth of July sizzle with the help of the grilling gurus at America's Test Kitchen. This weekend, feast on 12 back-to-back episodes of the series while you plan your holiday menu. Impress your guests with their foolproof recipes for grilled mojo-marinated skirt steak, grilled pita stuffed with lamb, spice-rubbed chicken drumsticks, plus seasonal sides and desserts, including Italian pasta salad, New England baked beans and a fresh fruit tart.
