“Fun today filming with Lidey for my new TV series, ‘Cook Like a Pro’ on Food Network!!” Garten wrote on Twitter. “Airing mid-May; stay tuned!!”

Refinery29 points out “Cook Like A Pro” was the name of a 2011 “Barefoot Contessa” episode in which Garten learns to make date cake from pro chef Laura Donnelly, and speculates that maybe other pros will do the teaching in the new series.
This woman is a hint-dropping PRO.
