To our Food Network & Cooking Channel audience,
First and foremost, if you have been impacted by Hurricane Sandy, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and sound.
Many of you probably didn’t realize, but our Food Network & Cooking Channel headquarters are located in lower Manhattan. Like most of that area, our office is currently still without power and our entire staff is doing their very best to work remotely (if possible) while the area begins the process of returning to normalcy. Despite the hurricane, our New York team as well as personnel in offices not directly impacted by the storm, have been working tirelessly to keep our programming and digital content updated and available for you.
Food Network & Cooking Channel have made a corporate donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief fund to support restoration and care efforts benefiting people impacted by Hurricane Sandy. I know that our team right here in New York, despite limited or no access to power or internet, has volunteered with many worthwhile organizations to aid recovery efforts and we will continue to do everything we can.
We will keep you updated in the coming days, but in the meantime, we ask for your patience as New York, and the entire East Coast, recover from the devastating impact of Hurricane Sandy.

Claire Robinson holds a massive ostrich egg (equivalent in size to 24 chicken eggs.)
Tonight starting at 8pm ET on Cooking Channel, Claire Robinson sets out to track down ingredients when their flavor is at the pinnacle. The mission turns out to be a bumpy ride with all the digging, diving, picking, milking and stealing required to find and cook with the best stuff around. There’s an angry herd of ostriches, swarms of honey bees and the hauling of gallons of fresh seawater to harvest some salt (to name a few of her roadblocks). If you can stand the heat, get out of the kitchen and join Claire on her Quest for the Fresh.
Flip through Claire’s photos for a sneak peek of her journey.
Watch the two-part special Quest for the Fresh at 8 and 8:30pm ET on Cooking Channel.

Bobby and Jamie Deen fry a turkey for their Thanksgiving feast
Is it too early to talk about Thanksgiving?
Because we can’t help it — it’s our favorite holiday (and not just because of our severe pecan pie addiction), plus Cooking Channel has such a great line-up of Thanksgiving specials coming in November that we couldn’t keep it to ourselves.
While pie is our #1 highlight of the holiday, a close second is the chance to watch some of our favorite chefs like Jamie and Bobby Deen share the family recipes that fill their Thanksgiving table each year. We take inspiration and start planning which recipes to add to our own Thanksgiving menu.
So here’s a sneak peek at Cooking Channel’s feast of Thanksgiving specials:
