Places in America to Love

She’ll show us all the places in America to love from major metropolitans to coastal towns and quaint country villages. We’ll be completely immersed by the culture and amazed at the beauty of our surroundings. Let’s hit the road with Samantha!

Chef Ellie Krieger, John Folse, Julie Taboulie, Jacques Pepin, and the ATK crew have tips and tricks to make the best fish dinner ever! Not sure what to make for dinner? Be sure to try one of these fish recipes - they won’t leave you floundering.
August 17 & August 18The heat wave is on and we’re ready to cool down. Pack your winter gear because we’re on holiday to visit some of the coldest regions in the world. Colleen Kelly will take you on unforgettable journey through Canada. Artists Bob Ross and Roger & Sarah Bansemer get cool on canvas with paintings of snow covered landscapes. This marathon will be chocked with enough fun that it will put you on ice until winter.
August 24 & August 25We’re making meals from Africa, Asia and the Middle East! Your palette will be excited and you won’t have to leave your kitchen to indulge thanks to Christopher Kimball. Use Christopher’s tried and true methods to infuse flavor into every bite. We’re on a global food tour!
Last of the Summer Fun
August 31 & September 1The unofficial end to summer is upon us. Grill-master Steven Raichlen has fantastic tips just in time for your Labor Day barbecue. The grill is fired up with succulent seafood, racks of ribs, and pork that’s just waiting to be pulled! This is next level barbecuing with new and wonderful flavors infused into your food.
