Food Network Spinoff

I wanted to be the first to tell everyone that the Food Network will be rolling out a spinoff network on May 31st.  The new channel, called the Cooking Channel,  is supposed to be "a little grittier, a little edgier, a little hipper."  That means no Barefoot Contessa, no Sandra Lee, and definitely no Paula Deen. 

Some of the concepts seem a little out there to me - I'm not sure how much I can relate to some guys building taco vending machines - but I know I'll welcome another channel to surf when there is nothing on tv.  Of course who am I kidding, television will be a thing of the past in less than 3 months!  TV, and everything else for that matter, will be replaced by sleep, or lack thereof.  I'm looking forward to it, really I am!

For a little more info on the new channel, you can read this brief article in the New York Times.


  1. I saw this today and I'm hoping we get the channel :)

  3. Interesting...I hadn't heard about this. I'll have to make sure to check it out. Although, I think every channel could be helped with a little Ina, I just love her!
