The Food Network Kitchen Wants to Help You Host For the Holidays





The new Food Network Kitchen app is making it easier to learn how to create impressive meals for family and friends. So, it only makes sense that the Food Network and the new app are sharing content all month long to help you prep for holiday entertaining.

“Food Network and Cooking Channel have Thanksgiving covered from every angle and this year we have packed the schedule, adding dynamic live and interactive content to really give viewers the experience, access and information they crave,” said Courtney White, President, Food Network and Cooking Channel. “From expert Thanksgiving feast recipes and family entertaining tips to edge-of-your-seat holiday themed competitions, spectacles, and live stunts, our programming and platforms are the ultimate destination leading up to the big day.”

Here’s the lineup of upcoming Thanksgiving content.
