The 30-minute show will be presented in association with PBS station WETA, Washington, and will air on PBS stations across the nation.
"PBS is the perfect home for this series. We'll show viewers how to prepare classic dishes as well as how to use proper techniques. This new series combines so many of my passions: teaching and encouraging others," Stewart said in a statement.
"We will break down classic recipes for home cooks and inspire them to add their unique twist. I'm excited to get into the kitchen and connect with audiences across the nation."
