From Scratch: Inside the Food Network by Allen Salkin

In October 1993, a tiny start-up called the Food Network debuted to little notice. Twenty years later, it is in 100 million homes, earns over half a billion dollars a year in profit and features a galaxy of stars whose faces and names are as familiar to us as our own family’s. Based upon extensive inside access, documents and interviews with hundreds of executives, stars, bit players and employees all up and down the ladder, Allen Salkin takes us inside conference rooms, studios, homes, restaurants and after-hour meetings in this irresistible story of the intersection between business, television, pop culture, food and the American audience. All this talk about food will work up an appetite…light brunch will be served!
