Katie Couric Will Kick Off New Year With Online Cooking Show

Limited-run weekly web series premieres Jan. 1.

People magazine associate food editor Ana Calderone has crowned her holiday week with a  tasty exclusive tied to today’s announcement.

Starting Jan. 1, via surlatable.com, Katie Couric will be appear in a limited-run weekly online cooking show titled Full Plate With Katie & John. Her husband John Molner accounts for the other half of the title:

“John and I love cooking at home but can rarely find the time, so we are thrilled to partner with Sur La Table and chef Joel Gamoran in creating these fast gourmet recipes,” Couric says in a press release of the show co-produced by Katie Couric Media and sponsored by GreenPan and Hansgrohe. “We look forward to sharing them with our busy viewers and showing them that they can do the same.”

Filmed at the couple’s New York apartment, the series will run for five consecutive weeks, with each successive 20-minute episode premiering Sunday at 7 p.m. ET. Couric is also set to return to the Today show for a week starting Jan. 2 to fill in for Savannah Guthrie. All in all, a hell of a New Year’s start.
