The Cooking Channel Isn’t Just for Hipsters

In case you haven’t noticed, the Food Network has been overflowing with cooking shows lately. So the masterminds behind everybody’s favorite food destination decided it was time to do something with the leftovers.

Their new concoction, the all new Cooking Channel, is truly yummy. The CC is designed to appeal to a new generation of foodies with shows like Food Jammers (think Mythbusters meets the Naked Chef), Indian Food Made Easy (seriously, you won’t be afraid of tumeric tumeric anymore), and Chuck’s Day Off (this dude makes things like alphabet pasta for grown-ups, cool).

And still, instead of being too hip for its own good, the network also pays homage to some unexpected godmothers and godfathers of food. We were delighted to see the Galloping Gourmet Graham Kerr, the French Chef Julia Child, and the Two Fat Ladies Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Paterson.

But if you plan on watching any time soon, you might want to order some Chinese food. Trust us, you’re going to get so sucked into the shows, you’re not going to want to leave your TV set to go to the kitchen and cook.
