Dear Food Network . . .
Orginally published by Edible TV (edibletv.net) on May 28, 2008
Last Thanksgiving, the Food Network answered a lot of prayers (and even more e-mails) for those overwhelmed by the annual autumnal feast. On Dear Food Network: Thanksgiving, stars Bobby Flay, Tyler Florence, Robert Irvine, and Paula Deen answered viewers questions, gave tips to help avoid problems, and ideas for managing time. Some folks actually got their e-mail answered in person by their favorite celebrity chef. That is one cool holiday treat.
Well they are back for another season, the Holiday Season to be exact. Have you burned down a building “frying” a turkey? Ever rendered someone unconscious while opening a champagne bottle? Do you wonder just what a traditional Kwanzaa meal is like? DFN has got you covered. Once again your favorite celebs are ready to help you through your holiday quandaries.
In a May 27th press release, Food Network announced they are “casting for the popular Dear Food Network specials set to air this holiday season. Four all new, one-hour programs will feature Food Network fans as they get the chance to have their cooking questions answered face-to-face by their star of choice. To be considered for Dear Food Network, viewers must upload a unique and entertaining three-minute video to http://www.foodnetwork.com by Monday, July 14th, sharing their story and explaining why they want a chance to have their cooking problems solved by their favorite Food Network star. Entrants must include their age, location and a humorous testimonial by a family member or friend. The best videos and questions will be considered for inclusion on the show. For additional information, please e-mail email@example.com.”
“From turkey day dilemmas to troubles with leftovers, this interactive cooking show will offer valuable suggestions for holiday dinner parties, “wowing” the relatives, and livening up a simple side dish. Last holiday season, Dear Food Network: Thanksgiving featured Paula Deen, Bobby Flay, Tyler Florence, and Guy Fieri who all came to the aid of viewers in need of culinary expertise during the holidays.”
