Can Anyone Post Recipes on the Food Network Website for Free?

The recipes that populate the Food Network website, found at, are written by the celebrity chefs that appear on Food Network shows and paid editorial staff. There is no option for the general public to upload or submit recipes via the website.

Occasionally, there are opportunities to submit recipes to the individual shows on the Food Network by entering contests or responding to casting calls. Many of these opportunities are only open to professional chefs, but some shows, such as Ultimate Recipe Showdown, focus on the home cook. Updates about casting calls and contests can be found at the Food Network website.
