CHICAGO (November 25, 2008)—The Food Channel® celebrates the official launch of the Christmas shopping season—the day after Thanksgiving, Nov. 28—with the debut of a month of innovative holiday gift ideas. Foodies everywhere are sure to love the tasty collection of favorite gifts selected, prepared and packaged by The Food Channel chefs and staff. Original photography showcases the range of gifts including candies, jams, bottled beverages, breads, nuts, a full dinner, and more.
“In this tough economy, we understand budgets are tighter than ever and people are looking for creative gift-giving ideas and original holiday recipes,” said Kay Logsdon, editor of The Food Channel. ‘Those not willing to brave Black Friday can log on to foodchannel.com for made-at-home gift ideas that demonstrate creativity and care for family, friends, neighbors, or coworkers.’
The Food Channel’s first holiday season will feature original recipes from its chefs along with select recipes from food bloggers and corporate recipe partners. Other elements to look for in December include a virtual cookie exchange, a review of some of the best cookbooks for gift-giving, a Christmas brunch spread, and a ‘Cooking with Dad’ video segment.
