The Chew Crew is gearing up for a big week as the weather turns colder.
Tuesday marks the official release date of The Chew's latest cookbook, The Chew: What's for Dinner?: 100 Easy Recipes for Every Night of the Week, following hard on the heels of last year's The Chew: Food. Life. Fun.
"Cooking shouldn't feel like math-it should feel like finger-painting," said The Chew executive producer Gordon Elliott, according to ABC. The new recipe guide is inteded to try and make dinner less of a hassle and more of a fun, creative event.
While Monday's episode saw Clinton Kelly, Daphne Oz, Carla Hall, Michael Symon, and Mario Batali prepare a fall feast, Tuesday's show will feature an array of recipes selected from the new book. As the chefs work hard in the kitchen, viewers will also get to see a guest appearance from actress Malin Akerman, who is currently staring in the new ABC family series, Trophy Wife.
On Wednesday, the hosts of Home & Garden Television's Property Brothers will stop by. Drew Scott and Jonathan Silver Scott will continue to battle it out in a crafting battle, brining curb appeal to your table. Meanwhile, Betrayal stars Stuart Townsend and Hannah Ware will drop by on Thursday to delve into the topic of lunch, an oft-underrepresented meal.
However, Friday's episode will be a sweet way to end the workweek. Dubbed Choc-O-Rama, viewers will be craving desserts following a trip to Boston's Flour Bakery while Jacques Torres, pastry chef extraordinaire, delivers some insight on the matter.
The Chew airs on ABC at 1 p.m. ET.
