Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can the Google Assistant 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 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 and will let you know when new 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 Food Network 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.

Q: The Google Assistant says it's sending recipes to my e-mail, but I'm not getting them. Help!

A: Did you check your spam filter? You might need to add to your "Safe Senders List." If you're still not getting the e-mails, let us know.
