Alex Guarnaschelli won't be off on Jan. 11.
That's when production begins on the second season of her Alex's Day Off series on Food Network, which has ordered 13 new installments from Rock Shrimp Productions.
Filming and production with chef Guarnaschelli, shopping for ingredients as she prepares her down-to-earth recipes, will take place through February in advance of the sophomore run premiering in April.
Coming off a successful premiere season of the Food Network series, Guarnaschelli dishes up a new batch of menus in her style of American, French and Italian fare that are elegant and approachable, with a side of sass.
The daughter of a cookbook editor, she grew up around food and after graduating from Barnard College in 1991 Guarnaschelli worked under acclaimed American chef Larry Forgione. Her resume includes seven years in France, the executive chef at Butter in New York and time on Food as both a challenger and a judge on Iron Chef America and a reoccurring judge on Chopped.
