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!
