SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Williams Sonoma, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE:WSM) portfolio of brands announced today a new and exclusive food collaboration with Trisha Yearwood, the country star, television host, and three-time New York Times bestselling cookbook author whose home and lifestyle empire continues to grow.
The Williams Sonoma and Trisha’s Kitchen collaboration features five food products that bring Trisha’s cherished family recipes to life.

“Williams Sonoma has always been my ‘happy place’ and I’ve wanted to be a part of their team forever! When I host a party, I focus on the people, not the necessarily the planning,” said Trisha Yearwood. “I am so excited to partner with one of my favorite stores with a line that helps make entertaining easy and fun. I hope to help give home cooks the confidence to invite everyone over this summer!”
