Daisy Martinez Gets Renewed for 6 More Episodes, Rachael Ray Co. Gets More Money

Food Network today announced that production will begin this month on a second "season" of Viva Daisy!, starring Daisy Martinez. Even though I wasn't blown away, I guess Daisy did dazzle enough to get resigned.

And now, the immortal words of Bob Tuschman:
"Daisy has a loyal and passionate following among food lovers. Her vibrant personality and easy approach to Latin dishes have made her a hit with our viewers, and we are excited to produce more episodes," said Bob Tuschman, Senior Vice President, Programming and Production for Food Network.

In case you forgot, Viva Daisy! is the first non-Rachael television venture for Watch Entertainment Inc., "the parent company for all Rachael Ray-related businesses including television production, licensing, merchandising and digital development."

Be on the lookout for more Rachael proteges on Food Network, handpicked by Ms. Ray herself. Yum-O.

When is it on? I've never seen it and only know it exists because of this web site. Did they promote it at all?

Daisy didn't dazzle me, but I think she has lots of potential. I'll tune in for a few more episodes.

Daisy is great and she knows her stuff! In terms of Latin cooking, she is way better than Ingrid Hoffman. Ingrid is more about miami cuisine. Daisy rocks way more!

I love Ingrid.

I really like Daisy's recipes. I've tried a few from Rachel Ray's EveryDay Food mag and they were delish.

I love Daisy Martinez. I used to watch her a while back on a local public station. I am happy to see her on Food Network now. Big fan.

I'm so happy she will be back for more episodes. I've tried many of her dishes and have really been pleased with the results. She knows her stuff. Good for her.
