"The only way to learn that is to do it. And a faster way to learn that is to do it with a really great chef."

Savannah marked the end of season one of Starting From Scratch

Several moments of Savannah and her guests from previous episodes were shown, seen enjoying their time in the kitchen as the NBC host learned how to power through her struggles and inexperience to produce some scrumptious-looking plates of food.

At the end, she made what she called "Savanitas" for her co-hosts Al Roker, Hoda Kotb, Craig Melvin, and Sheinelle Jones, a tequila cocktail that they all then sipped on while Hoda presented Savannah with a binder containing all her recipes as well as chef's whites with her monogrammed initials.
