On-demand video cooking subscription service Panna is scheduled to get its first taste of long-form linear programming when Love at First Bite launches on FYI later this month.

Produced by Panna, each episode of the 7 x 30-minute series (pictured) follows a couple who fell in love and opened a restaurant together. Featured in the series are acclaimed chefs and their partners as they navigate the origins of their relationships while serving up meaningful dishes from their home kitchens and providing educational cooking tips.

Famous culinary faces showcased in Love at First Bite include Vivian Howard, Nina Compton, Gavin Kaysen, Adam Sappington, John Shields, Elise Kornack, and Sohui Kim.

Love at First Bite premieres Jan. 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the A+E Networks-owned lifestyle network.

Panna’s David Ellner is executive producer alongside FYI’s Jordan Harman.

“We are thrilled to be expanding our storytelling to long-form television with this culinary love story that follows two people who meet, fall in love and follow their passion for food and creativity,” said Panna founder and CEO David Ellner in a statement. “At Panna, our passion is cooking and this is a natural extension of our core business. We’re excited to share their stories with the FYI audience, and deepen our relationship with A+E Networks.”

Panna serves as a cooking app, which has been downloaded more than 1.5 million times, that provides its subscribers with cooking classes and step-by-step video recipes from renowned chefs.
