Inside Food Network Kitchens

Related To:

You’ve likely seen the name Food Network Kitchens featured in many our most popular recipes, such as Oven Fried Chicken, Baked Ziti and Creamy Tomato Soup. But have you ever wondered who the chefs are or what exactly goes on inside Food Network Kitchens? Food Network Test Kitchen Manager Claudia Sidoti recently offered some fun facts about the expansive and well-stocked kitchen of Food Network headquarters in New York City to Grub Street.

Split between two separate working kitchens, one for testing and the other for camera-worthy plates, the space features a rustic table large enough to seat a crowd, several stove stations and a whopping 18 refrigerators, including one walk-in and three freezers.

Working with the 32 members of the Kitchens’ culinary team are three purchasers and one researcher, whose job it is to remain abreast of the latest food preparations, ingredient uses and culinary trends in the industry.

Find out how many recipes Food Network Kitchens test and develop each month, along with more details over on Grub Street.
