Get The All-New Food Network Kitchen App

Download Food Network Kitchen now to sign up and take advantage of the latest offer and get 40+ live classes a week, hundreds of on-demand cooking classes, in-app grocery ordering and so much more.

In this series, we're showing off some of the coolest recipes, tips and tricks we've learned from chefs in the all-new Food Network Kitchen app.

These days, it’s not uncommon to turn on your lights, set an alarm or change the channel on the television with the helping hand of a smart home device. So, why not bring that smart technology into the kitchen, too? If you have the Food Network Kitchen app and an Amazon device, it's easier than ever to cook smarter.

The app is designed to pair with Amazon smart devices with a screen to make cooking along with Food Network stars like Bobby Flay, Ina Garten and Giada De Laurentiis easier than ever. Use commands like, “Alexa, open Food Network Kitchen” and “Alexa, watch an episode of Barefoot Contessa” to tune-in via your Echo Show or Fire TV. And by asking Alexa to “Play” and “Pause” during on-demand classes, you can follow along at your own pace without having to reach for the remote or touch your device (ideal for those messy moments when your hands are covered in dough).

The Echo Show, Fire TV or Fire Tablet is the perfect companion to the Food Network Kitchen app in more ways than one. When planning your meals for the week, you can have Alexa add missing ingredients to your shopping list and have those groceries delivered to your door with quick, simple voice commands. You can also use your device to set alarms and timers, so you'll never burn a batch of cookies again.

If you’re going into 2020 with a plan to enjoy more meals at home, let the Food Network app make it a resolution that actually sticks. Answers to popular questions surrounding Amazon devices and the Food Network Kitchen app can be found here. Now, it's time for you to get cooking!
