Now Casting for a New Food Network ShowThere’s one in seemingly every family: That guy or gal who’s known unofficially as the “chef” and is constantly called upon to bake relatives’ birthday cakes, cater impromptu gatherings, host holiday suppers and bring the featured recipe to a potluck. They’re passionate about spending time in the kitchen, look forward to experimenting with new recipes, flavors and ingredients, and they’re unapologetic Food Network fanatics. If this sounds like you, then Food Network wants to hear from you.

The network is currently casting for a brand-new upcoming series that will show off the cooking chops of amateur chefs from around the country. But to be successful on the new show, it won’t be enough to simply follow a recipe.

Make an Orangeade Stand This Weekend

by in Community, September 20th, 2013

OrangeadeSeptember is Hunger Awareness Month. You might have noticed that the Food Network and Cooking Channel logos have Gone Orange to support childhood hunger awareness and No Kid Hungry. How can you Go Orange? You’ll find several different options at FoodNetwork.com/Hungry, but we have an idea for you if you want to take it a step further.

Inspired by the color orange and the September weather, Food Network Kitchens thought it would be a great idea to set up orange-lemonade stands — before it gets too chilly — to benefit No Kid Hungry. Orangeade stands, if you will. It’s a great opportunity to spread awareness, teach the little ones about childhood hunger and support the cause as a family. The great thing about No Kid Hungry is that every cent goes a long way. As you’ll see on their website, “every dollar you donate can connect a child in need with up to 10 meals.” In other words, if your orangeade stand raises $5, that could potentially turn into 50 meals.

What will you need? First things first: an orangeade recipe.
