While you are waiting for your big Food Network break, try out Aaron McCargo Jr‘s Chicken Parmesan, Lisa Garza’s White Bean Cassoulet or Kelsey Nixon‘s Macadamia Crusted Tilapia with White Chocolate Beurre Blanc (hard to say, easy to make…easier to eat). Good luck!
I’m not saying my colleagues are jealous that I get more mail than the USPS from this blog. But, they are taking notice. I’ve started receiving anonymous “stop hogging the blog!” interoffice memos. At Food Network — whether in our offices, kitchens or studios — there is always something going on, and apparently other folks want in on the act.
The good news is that their passion is in sync with your requests for more behind-the-scenes posts, more often. I could ignore my love of programming to join the ranks of bloggers like Perez Hilton (or Jacob from Food Network Addict), but I like my day job too much. Hence, it only makes sense to share the wealth.
My blog is joining forces with the The FN Dish. We’re expanding that web series to include a bigger, more frequent behind-the-scenes blog. You’ll still be able to watch Bruce Seidel‘s weekly web show and get great access to my other colleagues as well. Think more Food Network scoop from more contributors. I’ll still post as well which reminds me — have you tried the Neapolitan Pork recipe yet? Did it work out?
