Food Network's Got a Pretty Respectable YouTube Page... Finally!

Short, easy-to-digest Food Network vids seem like they'd be a natural on YouTube. People wanna eat. People wanna look at funny videos on YouTube. People wanna see what to eat while at work, away from the TV, while watching funny videos on YouTube.

But it was only in the last few months that the cable channel really started populating its YouTube page with good content. Even more recently, the page started allowing users to embed the videos (Deep breath, Scripps! Trust the bloggers. It's gonna be okay!)

You get this little Anne Burrell gem that kinda looks like one of her screen tests.

You get Alton Brown showing us how to truss a turkey:

You even get my girl Sunny Anderson giving us a quick tip on holiday cookies:

That's not to say everyone is loving Food Network's YouTube page. Apparently, the videos are only viewable here in the U.S., which has riled up our neighbors to the north and around the world:

"Why cant this channel be accessed from England? :( I love watching Ace of Cakes but its only on late at night in the UK, I always miss it!The Food Network website does not load up fully so I can't watch the videos on there either!"

"This is ridiculous that it's not allowed in Canada, umm that makes sense... "

"Can't watch the videos either... what's the use of having a YouTube acct. that will limit the viewers to USA only??"

"hi why wont it let me watch the videos? im in canada and i get the food network here. whats the problem then?"

I'm not entirely sure of the answer to their question, but I have a feeling it has something to do with the ad sales agreement YouTube has with Scripps and Food Network. Could be wrong, though.

Say what you will concerning Anne, have you watched Susie Fogelson's boy Fieri, that's loud. Anne is a talented Chef and very few people have her skill with a knife. Slicing is a skill, watch some of the Iron Chef re-runs when she was a Sous Chef. Giada is a graduate from the Sobourne, but has not worked on a line she is a DeLarentis this only something she does to fill up time.
