NEW YORK – January 25, 2016 – Internet cooking sensation Laura Vitale spreads warmth and love from her kitchen to yours with simple, seasonal meals on the return of Simply Laura, premiering on Saturday, March 5th at 10:30am ET/7:30am PT on Cooking Channel. While Laura’s roots are in Italian food, she is also an all-American girl who uses the power of a hearty meal to bring friends and family together. Throughout the season she shares her passion for food by cooking with her heart to create a blend of easy, enticing recipes.
“Cooking Channel’s millennial audience first discovered Laura Vitale on her popular online cooking series, and now with the return of Simply Laura they will continue to be charmed by her bubbly personality and approachable recipes,” said Didi O’Hearn, Senior Vice President Programming, Food Network & Cooking Channel.
For Laura food is a symbol of joy, and there is no other place where she is happier than cooking in her kitchen. Over the course of the eight half-hour episodes, Laura gives her delicious take on popular American mealtimes and shares personal stories behind each dish. In addition to tasty menus, Laura provides useful tips and tricks, from ideas on repurposing one main ingredient to make multiple meals, to make-ahead recipes to allow the most time to be spent enjoying family and friends, and to shortcuts for creating quick and easy meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
On the season premiere, Laura prepares a special date night with a restaurant-quality meal that she and her husband, Joe, can enjoy in the comfort of their own home. For the freshest ingredients for their dinner, Laura stops by her favorite local market to splurge on a beautiful cut of beef for the star of the plate – Seared New York Strip Steak. Inspired by her grandmother’s “cucina povera” or poor food, she also prepares some steakhouse-worthy side dishes without a hefty price tag such as Green Beans with Herbed Butter and Crispy Ribollita. It takes two to make this date night a success, so while Laura plates the food, Joe arrives home with flowers and helps to set the table, showing date night can be even more romantic and affordable at home.
Fans can join Laura online at CookingChannelTV.com/SimplyLaura for exclusive videos featuring her lifestyle tips and they can also access recipes from the show. To connect to the conversation on Twitter use #SimplyLaura.
Internet sensation Laura Vitale moved to the United States when she was 12 years old. As a teenager, she developed her love for cooking from her Italian grandmother, learning many of the recipes for classic Italian dishes over the phone. She began working in her father’s restaurants in her teens, but after they closed in 2008, she wanted to find a new way to continue to share her passion for cooking. In 2010, Laura began a new phase of her culinary career when she started her internet cooking series “Laura in the Kitchen.” The series quickly became a hit and now boasts an audience of several million, making Laura a well-known name in the cooking community.”

Absolutely, love Laura and her recipes.
really really bad..simply might be too much ..simpleton that would work…
I am Laura’s Fan for about 2 years now or more. And i love her. She is being herself, not trying too impress anyone. Cause some of your comments are negative and Laura likes Everyone, that is her positive. And she is down too earth. I watch her recipes over and over and have printed out hundreds. I will get her Cook Book as soon as i can. Love you Laura and Joe and the new little Vitale coming in this world in a few months. God Bless all Three of You and send a Hug too Nonna for me… Read more »
I think Laura is a very talented cook. That said, I also think she needs voice lessons big time. TV is a medium where presenting yourself is more important then what you present. I can see Laura has changed her looks and it is very important. Now she needs to work on that voice and she will be very well received.
Everybody who is being hateful the on here truely needs to seek God. This is absolutely ridiculous and borderline bullying. Keep your opinions to yourself. Ever heard the phrase if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all…? I mean you’re acting like a bunch of immature school age girls. If you don’t like the show don’t watch it, it’s that simple. If you don’t like the show, there’s literally 100 others you could try out. Assuming there isn’t any other pressing issues going on in your lives. Laura has a show because she has a… Read more »
The fact that Laura has gotten her show is great for her, but sadly it speaks poorly of the cooking channel. To put some random woman on TV and claim she is a cook is ridiculous. What Laura does can be done by anybody that is able to read instructions. I have only been able to stomach 10 minutes of this show. How fake she is and how she claims stolen recipes as her own, is not something I care to sit and watch and it is very sad that cooking channel feels something like this is good enough to… Read more »
Rachel Ray is just a cook, as well as the Pioneer Woman, Sandra Lee, etc. They feature many people with no training as chefs. Any time someone is successful on there or the Food Network people throw around the claim that there are stolen recipes. I’m calling bs on that one.
I like her YT channel and have been watching her for a while. I even bought her book. I’ve always liked her. What I did not like is the fake personality she has in the tv show. I KNOW because I’m a fan, that Laura LOVES greens and in that episode with the steak and herb butter right before she made the greens she acted like yuck! Greeens! Inguess to relate to most of the world who don’t like greens. I just didnt like that she played it like that because I know she lives for those greens. Other than… Read more »
I love Laura Vitale, I have followed her for years. Her recipes are always simple and delicious. She has a great personality & I can’t wait to see more of her recipes.
It is sad there are so many Haters.. I love her energy, her openness, her insight, and her passion. Refreshing addition to the Food Network lineup.
I’m sure they’re people from a gossip site. Just trying to throw a wrench in the wheel.
I try very hard to understand why people behave the way they do, and also realize there is really nothing we can do about it with people hiding behind their computers and taking no responsibility for the damage they may be causing in the lives of people they do not know, but that’s the world we live in today. I do not know Laura Vitale or her husband, I am just one of her fans that has followed her youtube show since the beginning. I was made aware of the “horrible” website , where these terrible comments are coming from,… Read more »
I don’t like the show at all! She seems so fake to me. We all know that all her recipes on YouTube are copied right off the internet. And she never cooks at home for her and Joe. The only cooking she does is for her YouTube channel. I will definitely NOT be watching her show on tv again!!!!!
Whoa, slow you’re roll haters! First off every recipe you’ve EVER seen online has been ripped off from some 40 or 50 year old book, cook (Julia Child), or Chef! Not to mention decades and centuries in every ethnic culture! The recipes are handed down and tweeked with each new generation. Wolf Gang puck does Mac and Cheese at the Oscars After Parties and Pot Pies..you think mac and cheese was a staple in the Austrian cuisine or culture, uh NO! It’s Strickly American, they may have a pasta recipe they say is “their” version, but it’s not THE version!… Read more »
