A treat for the gourmet and gourmand alike. This is the middle Easts first and only food and cooking channel and perhaps the answer to BBC’s Food channel. 24 hour cooking shows in English and even a few Arabic shows the channel provides wholesome entertainment sans the sex and violence.

Incidentally, the channels original backers, a Kuwait based investment company has pulled out and new investors are being sought. I doubt if they will have a problem finding investors because the quality of programming is extremely good and there shouldn’t be any dearth of advertising as the food industry would find a dedicated channel to plug their products and a viewer ship that would have a major say in the spending of the household budget. l hope they find an investor quick or vice versa, as it would be a shame, if the channel were taken off the air .

Chefs featured on the channel include Nigella Lawson, Jamie Oliver & Giada. Not to forget Rachel Ray, though l still keep wondering what her claim to fame is.
