FoodWire offers a monthly update on what’s cooking on
Visitors to The Food Channel are now starting to see new “how-to-make…” cooking videos that let you watch a recipe come to life from a different yet familiar perspective: yours. It’s called First Person Cooking and the concept enables the viewer to feel as if he or she is dicing the bell pepper or sautéing the shrimp. Inspired by the technology behind first-person shooters and other video game genres, First Person Cooking trades in the video gun or machete for a knife—a paring knife—or a spatula or other kitchen utensil. You really should check it out. After all, “The eye is the best pupil.”
Our Food Channel Store is up and running now, so you can “shop like a chef” 24 hours a day. Just click on the SHOP tab at the top of the page and you’re there.
Our goal is to hunt down and bring you the best new and useful products on the market, and we’ll try to bring you some of the best deals we can find, too. Right now you’ll find an exciting combo offer on a spiral-sliced hickory smoked ham and premium pound cake on the Ozark Mountain Smokehouse page. You save $25 when you purchase this combo package deal—perfect for your Easter dinner, and available while supplies last through Easter Sunday.
Gulf Update: A Year After the Spill
It’s been nearly a year since the Deepwater Horizon blowout in the Gulf of Mexico. The news networks are planning their anniversary special reports, and other interest groups are planning to mark the occasion in various ways. ABC News is asking its viewers to submit questions they’d like to see answered in the network’s upcoming coverage.
The Food Channel has dived deep into the subject with a documentary video series coming soon. Get an advance look here.
The Food Channel has been keeping readers updated on the region’s comeback for many months, and will continue to do so. Much of our focus has been on the perception problem that exists regarding the safety of Gulf seafood in the wake of the spill. Although the shrimp and other fish have been tested more than any in history—and found to be safe (and delicious)— many consumers remain skittish. One restaurant outfit that’s unafraid to feature Gulf Seafood is the Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group. We recently visited Brennan’s newest venture, the Heritage Grill in New Orleans. Chef Haley Bitterman took us through the steps of making BBQ Shrimp, Cajun style. You can view the video here.
