New York Times Alum Alison Roman Joins CNN+


Cook, writer and author Alison Roman is joining CNN+ as the host of a brand-new original cooking show.

The series will feature Roman both in and out of the kitchen. In each episode, she will teach viewers recipes from the stove and head out to learn about the ingredients, the people and the story behind each dish. The show will debut exclusively on CNN+, which is set to launch in the spring.

New York-based Roman is the author of the New York Times best-seller Nothing Fancy and Dining In. She also produces her own cooking YouTube series, Home Movies, and writes a cooking newsletter. Previously, she was a columnist for NYT Cooking and an editor at Bon Appétit magazine.

Roman said: “I could not be more thrilled to be partnering with CNN+ on this project. I’ve been dreaming about bringing a new sort of cooking and food show to life for years, and I can’t think of any place better to make it a reality. Lydia and the whole team at ZPZ have been heroes of mine for so long, I am truly beyond excited to collaborate with them.”

Amy Entelis, executive VP for talent and content development for CNN original series and films at CNN Worldwide, said: “Alison’s unique style and tone make her a perfect addition to our CNN+ lineup. From vinegar chicken to shallot pasta—we are thrilled that Alison will share the stories behind her signature recipes with the subscribers of CNN+.”
