Cooking has shows in the oven

Ray, Flay and Lagrasse headline new series

Cooking Channel is simmering on the stove for a few months before it’s served to cable viewers, but the net’s announced an inaugural programming slate featuring Rachael Ray, Bobby Flay and Emeril Lagasse.

Ray, Flay and Lagasse will all be featured in instructional series that will premiere this year at the former home of Fine Living Network. (Cooking Channel, a Scripps property like the Food Network, is scheduled to bow at the end of May.)

Ray’s series will focus on how to create a week’s worth of meals in one day, while Lagasse will describe how to prepare fresh food fast. Flay’s skein will offer recipes for brunch in a bon vivant style.

Also on tap: “Chuck’s Day Off,” in which host chef Chuck Hughes juggles running a restaurant with cooking, and series including “Chinese Food Made Easy,” with Ching-He Huang; “Everyday Exotic,” with Roger Mooking; “French Food at Home,” with Laura Calder; “David Rocco’s Dolce Vita”; and “Rachel Allen: Bake.”
