“Patti’s cooking talents are legendary among her friends and family, and we are thrilled she’s sharing that side of herself with our viewers,” said Courtney White, Senior Vice President, Programming, Scripps Networks Interactive. “You never know who will show up at Patti LaBelle’s Place – but every guest is guaranteed an amazing meal and Patti’s one-of-a-kind hospitality.”
In the premiere episode, Patti invites comedian Cedric the Entertainer over for a hearty meal and they laugh in the kitchen as Patti cooks up juicy and tender Lamb Chops with Candied Sweet Potatoes and Fresh Sautéed Spinach. Then, Carrie Ann Inaba from Dancing with the Stars stops by for a sweet treat, and Patti makes it a family affair when she prepares Aunt Hattie Mae's Raspberry Pie -- a simple and delicious dessert that's a perfect ten. Upcoming special guests include Laverne Cox, Wanda Durrant, Johnny Gill, Lori Grenier, Tamron Hall, Laurie Hernandez, Ledisi, David and Tamela Mann, Robin Roberts, Robert Sikora and Kym Whitley.
