"FoodNetwork.com continues to be the first place Web users turn for food and cooking information due to its trusted recipes from the Food Network Kitchens and other professional chefs, as well as the ability for fans to connect with favorite Food Network hosts like Paula Deen, Bobby Flay, Rachael Ray, and more," said Jody Jones, senior vice president of programming for SN Digital, home of FoodNetwork.com.

"The audience for food-related information online continues to grow, and FoodNetwork.com has responded by creating even more interactive experiences to serve users' needs," added Marie Moxom, vice president and site director of FoodNetwork.com. "Key to our success has been the ability to deliver smart content solutions. Our two latest original online videos series, Conscious Cooking and Easy Meals, Good Deals, address current trends around healthy eating and budget-friendly planning. We also focus heavily on seasonal-based programming throughout the year, from no-cook meals and grilling recipes in summer to holiday cookies in winter."
