Food Network on Amazon Echo
Alexa is now your ultimate 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 your Amazon Echo for the recipe. Just search the skills section of your Alexa app for “Food Network”, or say, “Alexa, enable Food Network skill” to get started.
With the new Food Network skill, it’s quick and easy to get the recipes from your favorite shows and chefs — or find some seasonal inspiration. 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 ask for the recipes that you see on TV.
Try it out:
“Alexa, ask Food Network……to spin the flavor wheel.”
… for chicken Parmigiana recipes.”
…for vegan mushroom recipes.”
What are some French toast recipes for brunch?”
...for butternut squash lasagna recipe by Giada.”
… for grilling recipes for lunch by Bobby?”
…to give me recent recipes from The Pioneer Woman.”
…to give me popular recipes from Alton Brown.”
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.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why do I have to give you my e-mail address?
A: You only need to give us your e-mail if you’d like to get recipe photos and links e-mailed to you. We promise we won’t use it for anything other than sending you recipes you’ve asked for or infrequent notifications about changes to the Food Network skill.
Q: Can Alexa read the recipe to me?
A: No. Our recipes are currently formatted for email, not for speaking. We’re always working on something new so stay tuned — and reach out to us if you’d like to help test new prototypes.
Q: Can I search for recipes through Alexa?
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.
