"WHAT'S FOR DINNER?" OFFERS

THOUSANDS OF SIMPLE, HEALTHY RECIPES

PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania– The latest installment of America’s Home Cooking will show viewers how to easily prepare healthy meals every night. “What’s For Dinner?” is the question and the answer. This cooking marathon airing April 24, 2010 at 1 p.m. on WQED-TV (digital 13.1) highlights some of the 64,000 possible meal combinations in the new “What’s For Dinner?” cookbook.

Produced by WQED Multimedia, Chris Fennimore hosts and invites his favorite cooks to join him in the kitchen. They’ll help viewers prepare a medley of pasta, rice pilaf, noodles, couscous, pork cutlets, sautéed greens, stuffed chicken breasts, and tilapia. Each meal falls into one of three wholesome categories: proteins, starches or vegetables.

By selecting one recipe from each category, home cooks can create more than 64,000 balanced meals. With this many possibilities, there’s no reason to be stuck in a culinary rut again. It’s easy. It’s healthy. It’s “What’s For Dinner?”

Since 1993, Fennimore has hosted a baker’s dozen of 13 national cooking marathons for PBS. He currently serves as WQED’s Director of Programming, and prepares dishes every Saturday on WQED-TV’s QED Cooks. Fennimore’s blog, additional recipes and video may be found at: http://www.wqed.org/cooks
