Cooking Channel is a television specialty channel that airs recurring (episodic) programs about food and cooking, owned by Scripps Networks Interactive. It is a spinoff (in essence) of Food Network, also owned by SNI, but focuses more on instructional shows rather than "reality style" and contest programming that Food Network is now geared towards.

Cooking Channel replaced Fine Living Network (also known as FLN) on May 31, 2010. The original plan was to implement the change in the fall of 2010,[1] but it was later announced that the switch was being moved up to coincide with Memorial Day in the USA.[2] Cooking Channel launched a high-definition feed on June 30, 2010. The channel also has an on demand version.[1]

As of August 2013, approximately 60,718,000 American households (53.17% of households with television) receive the Cooking Channel.[3]

Programming[edit]

Original shows[edit]

Food Network stars Emeril Lagasse, Rachael Ray and Bobby Flay were among the first to air new programs on the channel, including Emeril's Fresh Food Fast, Week In a Day, and Brunch @ Bobby's. Original programming included the Mo Rocca-hosted food education program Food(ography) and the combination reality TV series and cooking show Extra Virgin, featuring slice-of-life footage of actress Debi Mazar, her Italian chef husband Gabriele Cocoros, their two children, and assorted friends and family members.

Repeats[edit]

Shows airing on the Cooking Channel that are first to air in the United States but have previously aired outside the country come predominantly from cooks in Canada and Great Britain, such as Food Network Canada host David Rocco, who hosts the self-titled David Rocco's Dolce Vita and Irish chef Rachel Allen with Rachel Allen: Bake!. The following Cooking Channel programs are either "first to air in the U.S." or reruns that come from the Food Network library: A Cook's Tour, Ace of Cakes, Bill's Food, Bitchin' Kitchen, Caribbean Food Made Easy, Chuck's Day Off, Chinese Food Made Easy, Drink Up, Easy Chinese San Francisco by Ching He Huang, Everyday Exotic, Everyday Italian with Giada De Laurentiis, FoodCrafters, Food Jammers, French Food at Home, Good Eats, Indian Food Made Easy, Iron Chef (original Japanese version), Iron Chef America, Spice Goddess, Two Fat Ladies, and Tyler's Ultimate, in addition to various past programs hosted by Julia Child and Nigella Lawson.
