About FoodWire

FoodWire offers a monthly update on what’s cooking on
The Food Channel®, as well as a quick preview of what’s coming soon to our menu. The latest recipes, the hottest trends—it’s a quick and tasty buffet you can scan at a glance.

Food Channel KitchensFalling for Pies

The Food Channel predicted pies would be one of the foods to watch in 2011, and there’s no better time to watch them—or better yet, eat them—than during this time of year when leaves are falling and the holidays are fast approaching. This month’s pie feature offers a number of delectable recipe suggestions, plus points out a reliable resource for ordering wonderful pies, if you’re not up to baking one yourself.

Food Channel KitchensHoliday Mixology

The holiday party season will be cranking up soon, so it’s likely that you’ll be stirring and shaking up some cocktails for those gatherings of friends and family. We’re here to help by passing along some mixology tips and recipe suggestions from our friends at Smith & Wollensky restaurants. We’ve got a handful of selections of delightful drinks you may want to try, including something called a Horse’s Neck and another named the Boston Tea Party Martini (which has nothing to do with contemporary politics, by the way).

Food Channel KitchensA New Look

You may have noticed a brand new look to The Food Channel. But it’s not just about looks. We’ve made navigation easier, too. And in the coming months we’ll be adding new shows and partnering with some of the top culinary people from around the globe to create new programming—as well as bringing you exciting new features from our own Food Channel Test Kitchens. So, look forward to finding cool new products, tips, recipes, and trend info in an even more user-friendly format. We’re sure you’re going to love it.

Food Channel KitchensRecipes: Thanksgiving’s Greatest Hits
Here are four of our all-time favorites for Thanksgiving Day, starting with a magnificent main dish recipe that has to be right up there near the top of the list. Our Lemon-Herb Salted Turkey uses a fairly simple process that guarantees flavorful, hot and juicy turkey breast, and golden roasted turkey stock for gravy and stuffing. Best of all, it helps keep kitchen stress to a minimum.
Homemade Apple Herb Turkey Gravy
This superb gravy develops a rich flavor and color from caramelized onions and a natural roasted turkey stock.
Holiday Cranberry Salad
Sweet fresh orange and apple chunks accent the tart flavor of cranberries to create this classic side dish.
New Orleans Oyster Dressing
Here’s a traditional favorite from our Gulf Coast Thanksgiving feature that’s also a favorite of our Food Channel crew.
