What distinguishes Bringing It Home from other half-hour home-cooking shows?
It’s fresh! Fresh recipe ideas from today’s most innovative chefs, combined with farm-fresh food. Both come straight out of the field, right to your home. The key is the series’ celebrated host, Laura McIntosh. “You’ve heard of MTV’s 'Behind the Music'?,” says Laura. “I see our show as ‘Behind the Food.’” Laura travels throughout the United States and beyond. She takes viewers out to the farms that produce the most abundant and delicious crops. Then she brings them together with culinary wizards that turn this bountiful harvest into fresh, healthy, gourmet meals the whole family will enjoy. The program features recipes and ideas you can bring home. “ You don’t have to spend a day hunting down specialty food stores to find exotic ingredients,” says Laura. “Our recipes are as practical as they are delicious, designed to enhance the food’s natural flavors. We keep it simple so the dishes are fun and easy to prepare.”
Bringing It Home with Laura McIntosh was a 2008-2012 Emmy and 2005 James Beard Award nominee. It has won the Albertsons 2004 Presidents Partnership Award, numerous Telly and Aurora Awards, and the 2008 Communicator Award.
