Season two of Pitchin' In premieres January 3 on Food Network Canada

Continuing her search across North America for the best and freshest ingredients, celebrity chef Lynn Crawford returns with a standout second season of Pitchin’ In, premiering Monday, January 3, at 10 p.m. ET/11 p.m. PT on Food Network Canada.  

The award-winning series follows chef Lynn as she makes a deal with her local hosts and in exchange for her hard labour learning their trade, she’ll cook them a fantastic meal they’ll never forget.  

This 13-episode season features six episodes filmed in cities across Canada: Airdrie and Strathmore, Alberta; Malpeque, P.E.I.; Stratford, Ontario; Tofino, B.C.; and Bonavista, Newfoundland.

Never shy of a challenge, chef Lynn stops at nothing to get the job done.  From babysitting 5,000 baby heritage French chicks overnight in North Carolina, to coming face-to-face with her fears in order to handle bison in Alberta, and battling the cold and darkness to embark on an all-night squid fishing adventure in California, Lynn has her work cut out for her in this ultimate gastronomic adventure.

“My goal is to absorb as much knowledge as I can from these local heroes of fresh food production and embrace all challenges that come my way,” says Lynn Crawford, host of 

Pitchin’ In.  “The series has given me a deeper connection to food which is invaluable as a chef.”

“Canadians connected with the first season of Pitchin’ In and we’re so pleased to welcome chef Lynn back for a whole new season of adventure,” says Barb Williams, Senior Vice President of Content, Shaw Media.  “Lynn’s energy and charisma is infectious and viewers will walk away from each episode feeling not only highly entertained but thoroughly inspired.”

Episodes of the second season of Pitchin’ In will be available for streaming from after each airing. 


The first two world broadcast premiere episodes include:


Pitchin’ In: Chicken

Monday, January 3 at 9 p.m. ET/10 p.m. PT

Chef Lynn has always loved a roast chicken.  Now in Siler City North Carolina, she’s found heritage French birds that taste the way chicken used to taste.  But raising them is hard and dirty work, and even requires Lynn to sleep overnight with 5,000 baby chicks.


Pitchin’ In: Bison

Monday, January 10 at 9 p.m. ET/10 p.m. PT

Bison was once almost extinct but a small group of Airdrie, Alberta, ranchers have worked to bring them back and now bison is becoming a popular, more healthy alternative to beef.  These majestic creatures are raised almost wild, and chef Lynn has to come face-to-face with her fears when she has to handle them.
