The six-episode series is to debut April 14.
"Trisha's best known as a music legend, but her talents don't stop there. She's a passionate and talented cook, whose down-to-earth style, winning recipes, and southern hospitality will charm and inspire viewers," Bob Tuschman, the network's general manager and senior vice president of programming, said in a statement.
