This is no joke! Rach is bringing back "30 Minute Meals" on Food Network, and you can watch the first five episodes right now on their app. (Yep, you can legitimately binge-watch!)
It's been 18 years since "30 Minute Meals" premiered in 2001. The show ran until 2012, and now, seven years later, Rach is giving us THIRTY brand new episodes.
Every day during the month of April, at 12pm ET, you can see a new episode of "30 Minute Meals."
"I wanted them to be 30-minute meals for a new generation," Rach says, "So I asked our staff, our culinary team of millennials... to give me a tree of ideas — and they did."
Rachael and her crew filmed the new "30-Minute Meals" in Brooklyn, New York, and our very own culinary producer Jeanette Donnarumma is bringing you behind-the-scenes with a tour of the incredible set!
Watch the video above to see exclusive backstage content, hear secrets from shooting and get a sneak peek of some of the recipes you can catch Rach making this month. Plus, members of Rach's culinary team share their favorite memories of the original "30 Minute Meals."
Speaking of, Rach wanted to return the favor for a member of her crew, Max. At 23, he hasn't had a haircut since the seventh grade — so she set him up for a surprise 30-minute "man-over" with stylist Kyan Douglas.
And of course, Rach made a new 30-minute meal on our show today, too. Get her recipe for Dragon Chicken, Sesame Broccolini And Jasmine Rice here!
