Are you addicted to the Food Network? You won’t want to miss Allen Salkin’s look Inside the Food Network. In
October 1993, a tiny start-up called the Food Network debuted to little notice. Twenty years later, the channel
airs in over 100 million homes, earns over half a billion dollars a year, and features an abundance of talent with
major star power. Allen Salkin’s book takes us beyond the conference rooms, studios, and restaurants to give us
exclusive interviews and the inside scoop on the Food Network, given by everyone from the stars themselves to
the executives and crew members.
From Scratch illuminates the people we thought we knew- and the one we never knew about- in this irresistible
story of the intersection between business, television, pop culture, food, and the American audience.
Allen Salkin has been a journalist for such publications as New York Magazine, The Village Voice, and Details. As a
reporter for The New York Times, he wrote hundreds of features about food, culture, and media.
