What’s in Your Ultimate Chopped Basket?

by in Shows, January 21st, 2013

Chopped BasketThree rounds, three different baskets and 12 out-of-this-world ingredients. Whether it’s Chopped Champions, All-Stars or regular-season episodes, that’s a lot of combinations to come up with.

So we’re asking this question: What would be included in your ultimate Chopped basket? Not something you’d want to receive, but something you’d give to a fellow competitor. Would there be two proteins? All sweets? Would you include one or two ingredients they’ve probably never heard of? It can be argued that the simplest ingredients like eggs, chicken, pasta and rice are sometimes the hardest.

Tell us what you’d choose in the comments below.

Food Network LogoLater this year, Food Network will celebrate its 20th anniversary, and since 1997 the brand has had the same iconic logo. Until now. Yesterday, Food Network launched a brand-new logo. For the tried-and-true die-hard fans of the network, don’t fret. As you can see in the image to the left, only small changes have been made to the familiar plate-shaped logo. You’ll soon see the logo integrated into FoodNetwork.com and Food Network Magazine, too.

“Looking to excite our audience, the refresh strategy was to reinvigorate our loyal fan base as we celebrate entering our 20th year,” says Susie Fogelson, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Brand Strategy for Food Network and Cooking Channel. “Food Network has grown and we wanted to freshen up our look and energy to better reflect our evolution into a broader, multiplatform entertainment brand.”

by in Community, December 22nd, 2012


The holiday season may be jolly for many of us, but let’s not forget that in the United States, 16 million kids are at risk of going hungry, especially at this time of year. If you’re still looking for that perfect gift, give one that will really make a difference. Share the spirit of the season by donating to No Kid Hungry to help hungry children in America.

Five reasons to donate this holiday season:

1. There are 16 million kids in the United States who will face hunger this year, but they don’t have to. As a nation, we have plenty of food and we also have programs in place that are designed to feed kids. No Kid Hungry is making sure these kids are getting connected with these programs. Childhood hunger is a solvable problem.

2. The No Kid Hungry campaign is making sure more kids start the school day with a healthy breakfast so that they’re ready to learn.
