by in Events, News, March 31st, 2013

2013 Food Network Baseball Concession OfferingsBatter up! The 2013 Major League Baseball season opens tonight with the Texas Rangers at the Houston Astros. Long before the seats get filled, though, the concession stands will be busy getting ready for crowds that will consume countless hot dogs, hamburgers, and even macaroni and cheese. If you find yourself in stadiums in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee, Minnesota, San Diego, St. Louis or Texas this season, you’ll want to check out Food Network’s stands.

New home-run offerings include Red Hot Burgers, mac and cheese carts, tacos, quesadilla carts and sandwich stands.

Back this season in Cincinnati and St. Louis are the custom hot dog bars: Satisfy your craving for all-American classic ballpark fare with a quarter-pound hot dog served on a potato roll. And it doesn’t stop there. Top your dog with the basics: barbecue sauce, ketchup, mustard, relish and sauerkraut. Plus, choose from Food Network favorites: bacon chunks, fried onions, corn chips, griddled onions and peppers, shredded cheddar, smoky baked beans and a smoky-sweet jalapeno relish.

Headed to the park this season? Check out Food Network’s menus for the following stadiums.

Carob Molasses — The Next Best Thing You Never Ate

by in News, March 14th, 2013

Carob MolassesWhat’s the next best thing you never ate?

Carob molasses. I know what you are thinking, but it’s not that weird health food chocolate substitute that made trail mixes depressing. Carob molasses is something completely different and worth seeking out. We’ve even put the molasses in baskets on Chopped. You get carob molasses from cooking the fruit of the carob pod with water, then straining and reducing it down to a crazy delicious syrup. It’s a Middle Eastern product, so if you want it, head to your nearest Middle Eastern market or look online.

Going Bananas: Winter Fancy Food Show Picks Top Food Trends

by in News, January 24th, 2013

BananasThis past weekend in San Francisco, Winter Fancy Food Show attendees discovered more than 80,000 products — from cheeses to teas to olive oils and meats, there’s no shortage of food and beverages to captivate industry insiders, food-lovers, restaurateurs and the media.

The show also predicts upcoming trends for the industry. Last year we saw lots of pickling (which made its way into many restaurants), ancient grains (quinoa and chia), coconut in ice cream, pudding and jam, and gluten-free products that people can rely on.

This year’s top food trends have just been picked by a panel of trendspotters, and bananas will now have their time in the spotlight. Still staying in the sweets bucket, the trendspotters loved the banana within Vosges Haut-Chocolat’s Wild Ophelia Peanut Butter & Banana Milk Chocolate Bar, PB Crave’s CoCo Bananas Peanut Butter and GoodPop’s Banana Cinnamon Frozen Pop.

Vacuum-Fried Snacks — The Next Best Thing You Never Ate

by in News, January 15th, 2013

Vacuum-Fried Snacksby Vince Camillo

What’s the next best thing you never ate?

The staff of Food Network Kitchens might know. We see (taste and smell) ingredients and products just before they make themselves known to the national palate. Sometimes one of our on-air chefs brings them into our kitchen, sometimes we find them during restaurant dinners or in grocery stores, at home and away. Each month we’re going to share one with you, along with tips or recipes. And we know that many of you devote a good amount of time to exploring, tasting or simply getting dinner on the table, so let us know what you find that might just be the next best thing we never ate.

If you’ve ever eaten a vacuum-fried banana chip (or any vacuum-fried fruit or vegetable), you may have been staring into the bag of the next big thing. Though the bag you remember was likely empty, because once you eat one of these puffed little disks of pure banana essence, you’ll realize that you can’t stop — the most important indicator of a successful snack.

A New Year, a New Food Network Logo

by in News, January 7th, 2013

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.”

Trailblazing Chefs and Blazing-Hot Flavors — 2013 Predictions From Food Network Kitchens

by in News, December 23rd, 2012

Blazing Hot Flavors - 2013 Food Trend PredictionsFood Network Kitchens have come up with their annual list of the top food trends that will define 2013. Check out some of the trends here.

1. Pop “Culture” — Is fermentation poised to be the new yoga? Beer, miso, yogurt, kombucha and their kin will multiply in 2013. Chefs love fermentation because it’s the ultimate source of complex flavors (it’s what makes grapes into a glass of wine), marketers love selling “live active cultures,” health nuts appreciate probiotics, and DIY-ers are learning that it’s easy to get into.

2. Heat Seekers — With jalapenos and chipotles now as common as meat and potatoes, the search for spicy satisfaction will lead us to seek heat in new places. The mass market is getting on board with Doritos taco shells, Sriracha popcorn and Spicy Pizzeria Cracker Jacks, while chefs are exploring warming Aleppo pepper and numbing Sichuan pepper.

What’s Hot in Desserts: Ice Cream

by in Events, News, October 18th, 2012

ice cream sweet event nycwffWhen you think of desserts, cookies, cakes, cupcakes and brownies usually come to mind first. But at Sandra Lee’s recent Sweet! event at the New York City Wine & Food Festival, the real star of the show was ice cream. Whether it was sandwiched between bites of doughnut, paired with a cupcake or eaten on its own, no two dishes were alike.

Diana Hardeman of MilkMade Ice Cream offered up scrumptious cranberry chocolate chip ice cream. Handcrafted with big hunks of both cranberry and chocolate, this homage to fall wasn’t your average pint.

Taking a more classic approach with an unexpected twist, Le Bernadin’s Chocolate Pink Peppercorn Ice Cream Sandwiches contained just the right kick of spice to bring out the subtle flavor of the chocolate sandwich base.
