Are you ready for another Saved by the Bell reunion? Good, because Kelly Kapowski and Jessie Spano are back in action—but this time in the kitchen.
Friends and former co-stars Tiffani Thiessen and Elizabeth Berkley reunite on Thiessen’s new Cooking Channel series Dinner at Tiffani’s and we have an exclusive first look. The episode, which airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET, shows how Thiessen teaches cooking novice Berkley how to prepare an easy but elegant meal for friends.
“Sooo proud of my dear inside/outside beauty @tiffanithiessen … I get to learn from her next week!! #believemeineedit,” Berkley captioned a photo of the duo, who also reunited with almost the entire cast for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last month.
In the preview video below, Thiessen “starts off kind of simple” with grilled ciabatta with ricotta and snap peas—since Berkley isn’t a regular in the kitchen.
And while their ciabatta bread slices are cooking away, the steam from the grill threatens to bring back Berkley’s infamous curly hair from her Bayside High days.
“It might just blast out,” she laughs.
But that’s not the only thing the pair will be whipping up. For their “Girls Night In,” Thiessen prepares a chicken with orange glaze served with orzo salad with corn, arugula and cherry tomatoes and roasted asparagus.
“Elizabeth and I used to spend long hours together on the set of Saved by the Bell so it’s nice that we can reconnect years later and really just be ourselves,” says the expectant mother.
