The Food Network


Jennifer Garner might turn a hobby into a side hustle. Jennifer’s filmed nearly 50 of her Pretend Cooking Show which she shares on Instagram and YouTube, and its popularity has sparked interest at the Food Network. Although she’s FAR from a professional chef, Jennifer’s camera presence, charm, and relatable cooking skills (and LACK of, at times) all make for an enjoyable watch. Food Network executives are trying to talk Jen into turning her hobby into an anything BUT pretend show. Jen is a full time mom and a movie star, so she isn’t sure she wants to commit to a series, but she IS considering filming quarterly hour-long specials for the network. Her good friend, Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten is encouraging Jen to pursue the opportunity.
