Food Network Welcomes Hipper, Younger Brother: The Cooking Channel


“The feel and style we’re going for is a little grittier, a little edgier, a little hipper,” said Bruce Seidel, the senior vice president for programming and production for the Cooking Channel.

It seems like TLC, The Travel Channel’s action packed food lineup and ABC’s “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” is putting a hurting on the more bland programming of Food Network. The execs got the message and are looking to switch it up a bit on a whole new channel.

The Cooking Channel is targeting the younger, hipster hipper crowd and maybe even the more eco-conscious viewer with younger cooks and fresher programming. I know what you’re thinking, people who cook that are even younger than Rachel Ray and Bobby Flay? Is that even possible? Well it is and apparently Food Network has finally figured that out. Yes, there is always Ace Of Cakes but they’re not enough.

Seems like there will still be no serious discussion about food on this network though and we will have to leave that to Michael Pollan who has had some words about the Food Network in the past. The new network is, however, considering featuring programs that feature killing chickens on air which I guess the Supreme Court would think is ok.

Also they are considering programming on eating disorders and obesity. Can you imagine a food network doing a show on people who throw up food? Continue reading

It’s not just sugar in a chocolate bunny worth avoiding here, there’s also the dyes, especially that funny tasting one on those marshmallow chicks. Another consideration allergies. You might as well through food sensitivities in there too. Continue reading
