Home cooks across the country are getting culinary inspiration and new recipes throughout 2014, thanks to the Great American Meals series from the CIA and USA WEEKEND. The recipes run in the magazine every Sunday and are posted to, accompanied by culinary technique videos. They were created by the chefs at the world’s premier culinary college with a focus on eating better, trying new things, and learning new techniques in the kitchen.

The videos are hosted by Chef Bill Briwa, Chef Bill Briwawho lights up the videos with his charisma and easygoing personality, and brings his culinary talents to the table with fun, inspiring, and simple-to-follow lessons.

“We could not think of a more perfect way to get Americans back into the kitchen,” says Heather Frank, editor-in-chief of USA WEEKEND. “By partnering with the CIA, we are now able to offer home cooks ideas and inspiration from the same institution that educated some of the nation’s most well-known figures in the food world…Working with the CIA, we hope to help families embrace new flavors from around the world and combine them with techniques they may already know to create a new definition of the Great American Meal.”

USA WEEKEND is a national weekly magazine distributed through nearly 800 newspapers in the United States.
