Tina Fey and Fellow 30 Rock Writers Take Over Food Network Kitchens

Related To:

Come the holiday season, most employees look forward to a company holiday party complete with casual, mingle-friendly eats — and maybe a cocktail or two — in the office break room or perhaps even at a local restaurant. But when you're a writer for 30 Rock, the everyday seasonal shindig just won't cut it.

This past December, to celebrate the holidays and the approaching end of 30 Rock's seventh and final season, Tina Fey and her fellow writers hosted their holiday bash at the ultimate destination kitchen — Food Network Kitchens — and what they ate was no ordinary cheese-and-crackers platter. More than two dozen 30 Rock writers and team members gathered in the expansive space to enjoy an evening of friends, plenty of laughs and a party-ready menu complete with dishes like cayenne-spiked butternut squash soup and linguini with a truffled cream sauce made by one of their own, John Riggi. We were on hand as they made their way into the kitchen, and we chatted with them about their thoughts on the end of 30 Rock, the food scene in the writers' room and more.
