Top 10 Genius Ingredient Inventions From Seasons 1 and 2

by in Shows, November 8th, 2012

Sweet Genius Season 1By Ron Ben-Israel, contributions by Kate Kenny and Nikki Junda

Ron Ben-Israel has raised the bar on the newest season of Sweet Genius with more unusual techniques and inspired flavor combinations. That made the Sweet Genius team think back to the previous seasons. After revisiting the best moments from the episodes, they narrowed down the 10 best ingredient inventions from Seasons 1 and 2 — the creations that truly impressed them.

1. Jessica Mogardo
Dessert: A Formaggio di Fossa and Lime Gelée
Episode: 210/Serpentine Genius
Mandatory Ingredient: Formaggio di Fossa

When I gave the chefs formaggio di fossa — a soft, pungent Italian cheese with a strong flavor — I wanted to taste something absolutely new. Chef Jessica Mogardo more than accepted this challenge when she created Formaggio di Fossa and Lime Gelée. The tartness of the lime toned down the pungency of the cheese and Chef Jessica managed to transform a creamy, heavy dairy product into a perfectly blended, luscious and light-as-air gelée. A remarkable bite and a genius idea.

Sandy: More on How You Can Help

by in Community, November 4th, 2012

Food Network
Through ongoing discussions with our partners at Share Our Strength, Food Network & Cooking Channel are focused on actions we can take, as well as viable options we can share with our viewers interested in helping to support those on the ground in New York City, New Jersey and the entire storm affected region, who are working around the clock to ensure families access to the food they need.

You can help, through direct donations (product donations, volunteering your time & financial support) to City Harvest, the Food Bank for New York City, and the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. Each of these organizations offices and their staffs have been directly affected by the storm; City Harvest’s Food Rescue Facility in Long Island City was in Evacuation Zone A and closed on Monday and Tuesday, however, they are operational now and delivered more than 100,000 pounds of food on Wednesday. Food Bank for New York City is continuing to distribute food supplies across the city daily from their Bronx-based warehouse, and will remain a critical source of food for thousands of New Yorkers in the coming days and weeks. The Community Food Bank of New Jersey is working directly with county level Offices of Emergency Management and with other emergency food service centers across the state to ensure families have the food and resources they need as they recover from Sandy.

These three organizations, in addition to The Red Cross, are working day in and day out to ensure the area’s families can access the basic necessities during this trying time. As they ramp up their response to feed those impacted by Hurricane Sandy, we applaud and support their work and encourage you to do the same.

One week later, we are optimistic that our Food Network & Cooking Channel offices will reopen sometime in the coming week. It may take days, weeks more, before our whole team as well as the entire area affected by the storm is back up and running, and we look forward to that time.

Hurricane Sandy: A Message From Brooke Johnson

Hurricane Sandy: A Message From Brooke Johnson

by in Community, November 2nd, 2012

Food NetworkTo our Food Network & Cooking Channel audience,

First and foremost, if you have been impacted by Hurricane Sandy, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and sound.

Many of you probably didn’t realize, but our Food Network & Cooking Channel headquarters are located in lower Manhattan. Like most of that area, our office is currently still without power and our entire staff is doing their very best to work remotely (if possible) while the area begins the process of returning to normalcy. Despite the hurricane, our New York team as well as personnel in offices not directly impacted by the storm, have been working tirelessly to keep our programming and digital content updated and available for you.

Food Network & Cooking Channel have made a corporate donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief fund to support restoration and care efforts benefiting people impacted by Hurricane Sandy. I know that our team right here in New York, despite limited or no access to power or internet, has volunteered with many worthwhile organizations to aid recovery efforts and we will continue to do everything we can.

We will keep you updated in the coming days, but in the meantime, we ask for your patience as New York, and the entire East Coast, recover from the devastating impact of Hurricane Sandy.

Warmest regards,

Brooke Johnson
President Food Network & Cooking Channel
