NEW YORK - October 3, 2013 - Trisha Yearwood's Emmy-winning(R) series Trisha's Southern Kitchen returns for a fourth season this fall with new family-inspired recipes, music and special visits from relatives and famous friends, including Kelly Clarkson and Wendy Williams.

New episodes begin airing Saturday, November 9th at 10:30am ET/PT on Food Network.
"Season four delivers everything our audience loves about Trisha - her passion for Southern cooking and devotion to family and friends have charmed viewers since she joined Food Network," said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network. "With more music and visits from famous friends, the new episodes are fun, intimate and uniquely entertaining."
"In my family, cooking has always been a collaborative effort that brings everyone together," said Trisha. "Including the 'whole family' has always been a part of the show and that's why I've invited even more friends to join me in the kitchen this season, along with my usual crew."
In the season premiere, Trisha finds herself nostalgic for the days of black and white television and retro TV dinners, so she invites her sister Beth over to transport back in time 1950s-style. While dressed in clothes from the era, they whip up Chicken Pot Pies, Chocolate Pudding Frosted Cupcakes and Green Beans with Cheese Sauce. The new season also features holiday-themed episodes for Thanksgiving and Holiday Brunch, a ladies night complete with cocktails and small-bites and a roster of celebrity guests.
