I think it's great that there will be another viewing choice and hope for some content heavy shows but regardless of the nature of the shows, more food talk just can't be a bad thing. I never saw a food show I didn't learn something from or enjoy in some way. :)

Food Network is doing this because they have had so much success with their current mix of shows. Count on their going with that same winning formula on the new network.

Just my opinion but, I don't care for the contrived "chef" competitions, cake decorating shows, and grinning personalities. And I surly do not give a fat flying flip what Brian Boitano would make.

These ones are all Canadian shows that I absolutely love (well except Food Jammers). But alas, you will probably be getting OUR repeats for a change. French Food at Home is wonderful!

Here's a link to an interesting article on The Cooking Channel that appeared in the Dining section of this past Wednesday's New York Times:

Babetoo - first check to see if you already get The FineLiving Network (FLN, Channel 232 on our Direct TV system), which is also owned by Food Network. If you do, then you may also get The Cooking Channel, since I believe I read that Food Network is replacing the FineLiving channel with The Cooking Channel.
