The Food Network

August 12th, 2008 by Rachel Nico VP, Business & Legal Affairs

A warm welcome to all of my Food Network friends: Bobby, Paula, Ellie, Robin, Dave and Ingrid. I have been a huge fan of the Food Network for years and am excited to introduce all of my favorites to Hulu. Scripps Networks (the owner of Food Network, Fine Living, HGTV and DIY) has been gracious enough to provide Hulu with a number of clips from our favorite shows.

Hulu is kicking off the Food Network with one of its superstars — Bobby Flay (Mesa Grill), host of Throwdown with Bobby Flay. In Throwdown, Bobby and his team select a dish, such as cheesecake or BBQ, search for the person who does it best, and then launch a surprise attack on the pro, challenging them to a cook-off in front of the cameras. On Hulu, he provides helpful kitchen techniques such as Basic Knife Skills.

I can’t tell you how many hours I have watched Bobby striving for victory on Throwdown with Bobby Flay, but I’ve found inspiration from other Food Network stars, too. I have been motivated to cook healthy meals with Ellie (Healthy Appetite with Ellie Krieger), whose food is so delicious, you wouldn’t guess that it’s also good for you. One of my new favorites is Dave Does, webisodes that highlight food, drink and gadgets, and where to find the best of them. I’ve taken numerous trips to Miami, Brazil and Puerto Rico — all fueled by my love of Latin food — and Ingrid (Simply Delicioso) brings a little Cuban and Brazilian flavor my way with Latin drinks. And, whenever I need a southern fix, there’s Paula Deen of Paula’s Home Cooking. I love that she isn’t afraid to use loads of butter, fry anything (including butter), and make sweet southern treats (pecan pie, anyone?). Clips from all these favorites are now available on Hulu.
