Who Creates the Recipes on the Food Network Channel?


The Food Network shows compile recipes from celebrity chefs as well as recipes created by the show's own kitchen. Celebrity chefs who contribute to the channel include Rachael Ray, Emeril Lagasse and Ina Garten.

The Food Network website lists recipes by known chefs and by the Food Network Kitchen. It also posts recipes from cookbooks and magazines. Recipes cannot be copyrighted under US law, therefore it is difficult to trace their original authorship.

The Food Network produces a number of cooking shows, including Chopped, Cutthroat Kitchen and The Pioneer Woman.

The Food Network is behind the success of such successful celebrity chefs as Rachael Ray. Ray hosted three Food Network shows and launched a magazine and several cookbooks.
