This Weekend on WNED thinkbright Create
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!
July 21 & 22
This weekend, Create chefs incorporate this quintessential summer fruit into flavorful entrées and desserts. Annabel Langbein flambés peaches by the seaside. Sara Moulton uses Georgia peaches in her chutney burgers. Ellie Krieger preps a healthy weeknight dinner featuring peach chicken with crispy bread crumbs. Cook’s Country shares a recipe for fried peach pies. And Martha Stewart makes a regional specialty — Baltimore peach cake.
Beauty and the Beach
July 28 & 29
Bask in blue lagoons this weekend as Create's resident globe-trotters visit some of the world's most exotic beaches. Rudy Maxa, Rick Steves, Joseph Rosendo and Darley Newman revel in the crystal-clear waters of Hawaii, Tahiti, French Polynesia, Greece, Australia and Mozambique.
August 4 & 5
There’s nothing like freshly picked fruit! Fruit on its own or part of an entrée, our Create chefs will show you how sweet it is. Have a peach salad with Nick Stellino or some apricots and blueberries on Jacques Pepin’s cheesecake. Chef Irie pairs his flavorful salmon with a papaya and mango slaw. Summertime fruits are sure to add a burst of flavor to any meal!
August 11 & 12
The heat wave is on and we’re ready to cool down. Pack your winter gear as we’re on holiday at some of the coldest regions in the world. Colleen Kelly and Joseph Rosendo will take you on unforgettable journey through Canada. Artists Bob Ross and Sue Scheewe get cool on canvas with paintings of snow covered landscapes. This marathon will be packed with enough fun that it’ll put you on ice until winter.
