Preview My New Magnolia Network Show

Behind the Scenes of Zoe Bakes on Magnolia Network

At a super young age I discovered baking brings me joy and feeds my soul. What I’ve learned from a career in professional kitchens is that I love teaching other people how to bake even more! Now I get to do both, on TV. Joanna and Chip Gaines have given me a series on their new Magnolia Network where I can bake, teach and be inspired by some phenomenally talented bakers (and chefs, farmers, bee keepers and more …) in my Minnesota community.

Watch the first episode on discovery+ (Now Available)

This is a dream come true and now you can watch the first full episode of Zoë Bakes streaming on discovery+. I’ll be making a lattice pie with strawberries and rhubarb (quintessentially MN and lovingly planted by my dad), plus a simple fruit “fool” inspired by a trip to visit one of my favorite local pastry chefs (find the recipes below!). You’ll get a glimpse into my baking series (and my kitchen), where I break down all the secrets of pastry and share my tips and techniques. It’s all crazy delicious and easy, so I hope you’ll tune in and bake along with me!

Thank you to Joanna, Chip, Andrew Zimmern, Intuitive Content, Patrick Weiland, Patrick McMahill, Madeleine Hill and the rest of the many, many talented folks (there are dozens) who helped me make this dream come true. I also want to thank my family and friends who dove into this journey with me and made the show feel like home! It takes a village and you’re a spectacular one!

Watch the first episode on discovery+. Come bake with me! xo

  1. Just watched this fun video of cookie making with Zoe and son and it was great! A look inside their sugar heaven baking kitchen. Loved seeing them bake together.

  2. AWESOME! You go Girl! You are one of my hidden blessings from the Pandemic!
    I saw an article about you in a magazine. So, while “staying home”, I began to try
    your 5 Minute Dough recipes. I love them!!

    I am a MN Girl too, and I wish you every success.

  3. I’ve been a fan since ABin5 and your Instagram feed and videos were inspiring even before anyone else was doing video on the platform. And now you’ve given me a reason to get into Discovery+ (Believe me when I tell you, I was not into discovering any new tv channels). I can’t wait to watch and absorb everything!

    1. Hi Jennifer! So glad to hear you love the show. There are 10 more episodes coming, but we are not privy to when exactly they will be released. It could be soon, or it could be closer to July. Stay tuned to Zoe’s social media channels or join the email list as she will be sure to let her followers know when they’re available.

  4. This former Minnesotan, now Coloradan, is SO EXCITED, to see more episodes! We love that neighborhood, the lifestyle, and miss so much about MN—just not the winters
