Food Network’s Cyber Reach
Even in the early days of the Food Network, officials knew it would be hard for home cooks to keep up with the chefs on TV. While viewers might be inspired to try something new in the kitchen, noting the recipes and optimal cooking methods posed a challenge.
That led to the 1995 launch of the Food Network website, an online presence that has continued to grow with its broadcast big brother. Today, the site leads the digital cooking division of Scripps Network, spawning several apps and inspiring the sites of sister networks like the Cooking Channel as well as food.com.
