Two new food shows are scheduled to land on The Roku Channel this week, and both hail from Christopher Kimball, creator of "Milk Street" (and former CEO/host of "America's Test Kitchen").

The latest additions to the ever-growing list of brand-new Roku Originals, "Milk Street's Cooking School" and "Milk Street's My Family Recipe" are both available for streaming beginning Friday, Oct. 28.

Armed with "appealing, approachable recipes from around the world" (according to the official description), Kimball and his team of experts seek to inspire home cooks through "Milk Street's Cooking School." The show introduces viewers to new techniques, ingredients and tools that should make every home cook more confident, more successful and more excited to get in the kitchen.

The other series, "Milk Street's My Family Recipe," taps into the emotional food-family connection.

"With a combination of historical context and modern culinary know-how, Christopher Kimball and James Beard Award Winner Cheryl Day will help home cooks recreate lost or forgotten cherished family recipes," the official description reads. "'My Family Recipe' is more than a cooking show — it's a show about history, community, family and memories, and how food ties it all together."

These two Roku Originals stem from a deal inked earlier this year with Milk Street and Marquee Brands, the company that owns the Martha Stewart and Emeril Lagasse brands. Roku's high-profile partnership has not only produced several original series, it also adds more than 3,000 episodes — including complete past seasons of shows such as "Martha Stewart Living" and "Essence of Emeril" — to Roku's free-to-view library.

Roku has also pledged to make it easy to access all of this content, including Seasons 1 through 5 of "Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Television," by creating linear channels for users to watch through the Live TV Guide.

As for "Milk Street's Cooking School" and "Milk Street's My Family Recipe," the two new series arrive on The Roku Channel Friday, Oct. 28.
