Praise for From Scratch: Inside the Food Network
“Dishy, behind-the-scenes . . . it’s salacious enough to keep you swinging from one good old-fashioned bootstrap story to the next.”--New York Times Book Review
“Allen Salkin shows how the sausage really gets made at the Food Network in From Scratch, a behind-the-scenes history liberally spiced with gossip and unsavory tidbits.”—Entertainment Weekly
“In From Scratch: Inside the Food Network, Allen Salkin guides readers through the history of the network, from its start in the 1990s to today. Along the way, Salkin serves up plenty of stories that will surprise and entertain. . . For Food Network addicts hungry to know more about the network, Salkin’s book will hit the spot.”—Associated Press
“A detailed look at the network from start-up phase to the present, with a generous lump of juicy stories about the network’s most polarizing figures—Guy Fieri, Bobby Flay, Anthony Bourdain and, of course, Paula Deen y’all—heaped on top.”—The Atlantic Wire
“For a full account of the network and its evolution, it’s worth reading Allen Salkin’s excellent, informative new tome.”—The Wall Street Journal

“You don’t have to be a foodie to enjoy Allen Salkin’s new book — “From Scratch” (Putnam) — about the creation of The Food Network 20 years ago, and its turbulent but highly successful history since then. Salkin researched and writes the story so well that it has the energy of a great show business novel . . . It’s a TV business story, it’s a tale of the rise of the food and restaurant cultures over the past two decades, and it’s a look at a wide array of fascinating personalities who flourished (and fell) after the creation of a cable channel devoted to food . . . The result is a rare non-fiction book with the narrative pace of the juiciest fiction.”—Connecticut Post

“Salkin’s recipe is one part steamy exposé, one part deep-fried human interest and one part television history. This fusion cuisine should satiate food fans while providing television buffs an unprecedented look at the evolution of a network.”—Kirkus Reviews

From Scratch is a saucy tell-all, by turns shocking, funny and informative. Fans of the network or those who just love seeing how the show-biz sausage is made, this one's for you.”—BookPage

“A new tell-all history of the Food Network that details the egos, and feuds of the people that made a fledgling upstart a cable TV empire.”—The Daily Beast

“The definitive account of the 20-year-old network and its stars.”—New York Daily News
“With a light wit and balanced perspective, Salkin presents the definitive history of the network from inception to the present day.  Food Network devotees will delight at the inside knowledge of internal scandals, the intriguing biographies of their favorite star chefs, and an exclusive look at the ever-shifting lineup of executives and parent companies . . . Salkin moves deftly between periods in the channel’s development, garnishing the narrative with frequent quotes from influential personalities to add depth.  [A] nuanced and rich tale of an empire that no one expected to survive.”—Publishers Weekly

Serving Up An Empire 12. Oktober 2013
Von Joel Graber - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Interesting and well-written corporate history of the Food Network, not about food per se, nor about America's fairly recent enthusiasm for all things culinary, but about TV/money. Salkin might as well have explored, let's say, the history of CNN. There's no indication that the changing cast of characters running FN since the 90s have ever cared much about what they ate or where. They've cared about making TV. The network obviously depends on personalities, and the leading lights are present in this book, but gossip or sensationalism isn't the author's objective. There are plenty of other sources for that sort of material. For someone who watches food TV regularly, and interested in both sides of the camera, a rewarding survey from 1993 to now.

The Rise and (Near) Fall of TVFN 9. Oktober 2013
Von Irena Chalmers - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I attended the press party at The Rainbow Room for the launch of the Food Network. It took less than half a minute to realize there would be no place for me (or any of my friends) on this new venture. I thought I pretty much knew what had happened to it. I now know I knew nothing. I was totally engrossed in this rigorously researched, brilliantly written book.It is fascinating to learn about winners -- giddy with glimpses of future fame and fortune -- and losers, who vanish like grieving Cheshire cats. This is as fine a portrait as I've ever read about corporate culture that is both awesome and appalling. I most enthusiastically recommend this extraordinarily erudite work.

Loved It 12. September 2014
Von Rita J. Iwanski - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I loved the book but I have to tell readers that I've been watching Food Network from the very beginning so I knew lots of the names and old programs, etc. It might be a little confusing for the newer Food Network viewer. I did find it very interesting and somewhat vindicating because I did see the big change in programming over the years and felt cheated when they focused less on cooking and more on food related shows like travel and now - the dreaded CONTEST shows. You learn that the bottom line of everything in corporations is money. But all that aside, it was a very nice stroll down Food Network memory lane and if FN wants to make more money they should start showing some of the old programs they cancelled where you actually learned something.

A Good Book….But Not What You Think 28. November 2013
Von Frank L. Urbano - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
If you are looking for a salacious expose on all of the Food Network stars and shows, this isn't it. If you are looking for a detailed review of the beginnings of the Food Network from a truly 'behind the scenes' viewpoint, including information about those people who were responsible for creating and nurturing this network, then this is your book. Many of the names in the book will be very unfamiliar to you, and, in the fact, the first 100 or so pages may not catch your interest….so keep reading.

The book does mention many of the current and former chefs on the network, but only a few are covered in enough detail to be considered well described. These include Emeril LaGasse, Bobby Flay, Rachael Ray, Robert Irvine, and Mario Batali. But even the information about these stars doesn't tell the whole story, and as you read this, you might yearn for some more dirt..some more expose like materials…some more juicy information. Unfortunately, that is not the author's intent in this book.

The title and book jacket is somewhat misleading, since when you buy this, you believe you are going to learn the backstories about all the stars, which you don't. In fact, many of the stars just get a brief mention, and others aren't mentioned at all. The coverage of some of TVFN's most popular shows isn't very thorough either.

So with all these shortcomings, why do I give this book the rating that I do? Because it is well written and it really fits the mold of a good piece of unbiased journalism without a lot of sensationalism. It is detailed, thorough, and provides information that only a consummate reporter and researcher could have obtained. It does not focus on the personalities and opinions of the food network stars; rather, it focuses on the skeleton structure and backbone of how they got where they are. And for that reason, it is a very interesting read.

If I had one request, I would have asked the author to expand his research and focus on the chefs a bit more, so that as a reader you felt like you got to know them better than you do after reading this book. And if he couldn't do that because of the type of book this is, I hope someone else writes that book someday!

Amazing book! 20. Oktober 2013
Von Karen Feuer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
What an amazing book! I used to love the Food Network but now barely recognize it. This book took me behind the scenes and showed me a world I never imagined. Now I see how it all happened.

Highly recommended!
