Cortana is now your perfect Food Network companion! If you've ever watched Food Network and found yourself thinking, "I'd love to make that," it'll be a snap — just ask Cortana for the recipe.

Simply ask Cortana to "Talk to Food Network" to get started. 

With the new Food Network skill, it's quick and easy to get the recipes from your favorite shows and chefs. Ask for recipes by name, ingredient, course or chef, and you'll receive them in your inbox to open at your convenience. You can also search our TV schedule by show, chef and time/date to find showtimes and episode details.


Here are some things you could ask Cortana for:

  • What's on Food Network now?
  • What show is on next?
  • What will be on tomorrow night?
  • When will Giada be on next?
  • When will Barefoot Contessa be on?
  • Give me the recipes on TV right now.
  • Find some chicken Parmigiana recipes.
  • Can I get some vegan mushroom recipes?
  • What are some French toast recipes for brunch?
  • Do you have that butternut squash lasagna recipe by Giada?
  • How about some grilling recipes for lunch by Bobby?
  • Give me recent recipes from The Pioneer Woman.
  • Give me popular recipes from Alton Brown.
  • You can change the time zone by saying "time zone".

An e-mail address is required during installation to get recipe details and links sent to you, and is NOT used for any other purpose.

if you have comments, questions or suggestions for the skill, reach out to us at our customer service form. We'd love to hear from you.

Happy cooking!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can Cortana read the recipe to me?

A: No. Our recipes are currently formatted for email, not for speaking. We'll be trying some new things out with our recipes in the near future, so stay tuned or reach out to us if you'd like to help test it. 

Q: Can I search for recipes through Cortana?

A: Yes! We added the ability to search for recipes by ingredient, chef, or course in response to your feedback. Try something like "ask Food Network for grilling recipes by Bobby Flay", for example.

Q: Can I set timers, remind myself when a show will be on, or save recipes to my Food Network Recipe Box?

A: Not right now. We are always working on making improvements to the skill and will let you know when the features are available. 

Q: Why do I have to give you my time zone?

A: For us to provide you with the most accurate schedule information, we need to know what time zone you're in. 

Q: What do I do if my TV listings do not match my time zone?

A: Food Network has two schedules in the United States: an East Coast schedule (Eastern time zone) and a West Coast schedule (Pacific time zone). Setting the time zone with the Food Network skill should give you the right schedule, but your cable or satellite provider might be using a different schedule; if you’re having trouble, try setting your time zone to Eastern or Pacific to check both.
