UND connections are featured in the latest episode of Girl Meets Farm television show, which will air Sunday, March 8, at 10 a.m. on the Food Network. This episode will feature the UND Trombone Choir.

Fans of the Food Network’s Girl Meets Farm TV show starring Molly Yeh — a nationally recognized food blogger and cookbook author — will see some University of North Dakota faces and places during two episodes to be aired in the coming months.

The UND Today story is featured here.

“I think it’s incredible for the community that Molly’s doing this TV show here and showing off Grand Forks, her friends and acquaintances,” said Andy Schneider, a former UND hockey player and graduate, who will appear on the show next month. “It’s just great for our area to have a little publicity.”

In its third season, much of Yeh’s show is recorded on the sugar beet farm north of East Grand Forks, Minn., where she and her husband Nick Hagen live and work with their new baby girl, Bernie. Yeh prepares recipes in her homey country kitchen, then serves them for the enjoyment of family, friends and visitors. Girl Meets Farm airs on Sundays at 10 a.m. Central Time.

On the Feb. 2 episode – the morning of Super Bowl Sunday – Yeh hosts a party at her home to watch a UND Fighting Hawks hockey game on TV. She makes and serves crispy chicken sandwiches, homemade noodles and chocolate-mint sandwich cookies shaped like hockey pucks. Her guests include former UND hockey players and Olympic gold medalists Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando, as well as Schneider and his wife, Heather. The episode will be rebroadcast Tuesday, Feb. 4, at 12:30 p.m. It is expected to be streamed later. Currently, only pay streaming is available.
