Food Network Heading to Europe, Africa, & Middle East

Perhaps a few stoups by Rachael Ray (or Giada's cleavage) will bring peace to the Middle East?

It was announced today that Food Network will launch in Europe, Africa and the Middle East through a joint venture with Chello Zone, "the leading international thematic channel arm of Chellomedia" — duh.

"Food Network will launch in the UK with popular and well-known faces such as Duff Goldman, Ina Garten and Rachael Ray. Original programming on the network will include the international hit series Iron Chef America which features world-class chefs such as Mario Batali, Jamie Oliver, Bobby Flay and Masaharu Morimoto. Also included in the launch lineup will be a new series -- The Best Thing I Ever Ate -- featuring famous chefs including Danny Boome, Giada De Laurentiis, Robert Irvine and Rocco DiSpirito."

If there's one thing the people of Africa need, it's 346 recipes for different burgers. What a world we live in! ;-)


Hey, Food Network! How about getting on the TVs in American hotels? Sometimes I need to "work" from the road and you're rarely there!

Ugh, post your review of WWBBD already! The show may be canceled already and we haven't seen anything other than a suggestive animated GIF! Gay fans are waiting!

I look forward to Ina doing Middle Easter recipes. Any recipe that includes "Good camel meat"...how bad can that be?

I am surprised they won't be introducing the world to Guy Fee-Yetti. Not good for international relations.

This is rather puzzling though.

" The Best Thing I Ever Ate -- featuring famous chefs including Danny Boome, Giada De Laurentiis, Robert Irvine UH ??????
Danny Who ? Giada ( 2 week Cordon Bleu Crash Course) Robert Irvine (The Queen calls me Laddy) ??

Famous perhaps, but not necessarily for any culinary contributions.

What a joke. Food Network PR releases are pretty funny. It sounds like they let the interns write them.
