Chef Alexandra Guarnaschelli probably won't have too many days off next year, as Food Network has just renewed 'Alex's Day Off' for a second season.

According to Variety, the show has received a healthy 13-episode order, with production scheduled to begin on Jan. 11. The new episodes will begin airing in April.

Guarnaschelli is the executive chef at New York City's famous Butter restaurant, an instructor at the Institute of Culinary Education and food TV star in her own right. She has competed on the network's 'Iron Chef America' program, where she went head-to-head with Chef Cat Cora in a farmer's market battle. Guarnaschelli has also served as a judge on 'America,' as well as 'Chopped' and 'Food Network Challenge.'Chef Alexandra Guarnaschelli probably won't have too many days off next year, as Food Network has just renewed 'Alex's Day Off' for a second season.

The chef's first solo venture on Food Network came as an instructional show called 'The Cooking Loft With Alex Guarnaschelli,' in which she taught in-studio groups how to prepare simple, classic foods. Her latest project, 'Alex's Day Off,' shows the cook shopping for fresh ingredients and then using them to prepare either American, French or Italian dishes.
