NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Taste of Home, one of the world's first crowdsourced content publications, inspired and co-authored by the largest community of home cooks, today announced a Kickstarter campaign to produce a pilot episode for a new Taste of Home TV series. 

Taste of Home is the only user-submitted recipe and lifestyle brand with test kitchen experts who elect, test, taste and edit every recipe they publish—over 55,000— to ensure the audience can recreate the same amazing flavors at home, in their own kitchens. Now, the favorite magazine and website is inviting home chefs to demonstrate and share their favorite recipes on an even bigger stage. 

"We have over 60 million passionate home cooks across the country who turn to Taste of Home's test-kitchen approved recipes as the ultimate inspiration for family meals, and experiences," said Sarah Farmer, Culinary Director. "We are excited to bring that to life in a new television series."

Taste of Home's TV Kickstarter campaign, which ends on September 18th, can be found here. The show will feature real home cooks, their recipes and inspiring stories, along with unique interactive competitions engaging a live studio audience.

"I eat up all of the delicious Taste of Home recipes religiously and find them all so different and easy to make at home," said Taste of Home Super Fan Courtney Stultz from Weir, Kansas. "The opportunity to share one of my own recipes on a show that I can also help develop and produce is even more exciting."

This first-ever interactive Taste of Home TV show is a natural extension of a brand that pioneered user-submitted recipe and cooking content. Taste of Home fans and home cooks will have direct input into the creation and direction of the show through social media and audience outreach.

Anyone who supports the Taste of Home TV campaign can choose from a host of Rewards including tours of the Taste of Home test kitchen and even the chance to audition to be on the show.

Taste of Home TV will be co-produced by Al Roker Entertainment, with TV vets Anson Williams and Art Rutter taking on roles as executive producers and creative directors.
