Indeed, the Cooking Channel continues to run the repeats regularly.

But after hosting shows such as “Iron Chef America” and “Cutthroat Kitchen,” he got the hunger again to go back onto his kitchen set. He first revised a few older episodes with “Good Eats: Reloaded” and has now created brand new ones.
The first episode returns Sunday at 10 p.m. on Food Network but you can view it early here. A second new episode will air at 10:30 p.m.
Brown, now 57, first tackles a now mostly forgotten classic: chicken parmigiana.
He’s lost most of his hair and his beard has grayed, but he has retained his sardonic sense of humor. The primary kitchen set is revived with many of the same props such as the iconic painting of the chicken wearing a bowler hat, which he saved from the original set.
In this episode, as part of a history lesson, he goes to where the origins of the dish came from: Manhattan. There are lessons about what is the best type of mortar and pestle to use, how to differentiate fake vs. genuine San Marzano tomatoes and finally, how to make Brown’s favorite version of chicken parm itself - with salt and vinegar chips as part of the breading!
