Product Details

Praise

“A detailed look at the network from start-up phase to the present…juicy stories about the network’s most polarizing figures—Guy Fieri, Bobby Flay, Anthony Bourdain, and, of course, Paula Deen y’all.”—The Atlantic Wire

“Dishy…Hard to resist.”—The New York Times Book Review

“One part steamy exposé, one part deep-fried human interest, and one part television history.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Details the egos and feuds of the people that made a fledgling upstart a cable TV empire.”—The Daily Beast

“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

“Salkin brings a pop journalist’s eye to the development of the network that would provide the ultimate exploitation of food and cooking…There’s plenty of good gossip to be had—the rise and fall of Emeril Lagasse is practically Shakespearean…Salkin seems to have interviewed almost everyone connected with the channel, and he’s good on behind-the-scenes business machinations.”—Los Angeles Times
