Hey foodies - is this the new YouTube of the culinary world? Chef Spike Mendelsohn launches Food2

Chef Spike Mendelsohn of Good Stuff Eatery is joined by Kelsey Nixon, voted “Fan Favorite” on season four of “The Next Food Network Star” in a young, hip, new webseries for the Food Network. The duo’s culinary talents are put to the test as Chef Spike and Kelsey offer two takes on classic dishes – Kelsey’s “by the book” approach and Spike’s “off the hook” spin. The Food2 website is HERE.

All in all more than a thousand online videos are waiting to be sampled and savored at Food2, along with recipes, tips and more.

Food2 has already built a following by giving out small bites of content online - blog posts, Facebook page, Flickr photos and “tweets” have been available since early March. Now a full-fledged Food2 website is live featuring:

  • Video – Food2 has more than a thousand short food and drink videos including web originals with new, fresh faces as well as shorts from the trusted talent and kitchens of Food Network.
  • Challenges – Users compete head to head in virtual Food2 Challenges to find the prettiest, the tastiest, the cheapest, the weirdest and the ugliest food around.
  • Recipes – From quick and easy to palate expanding, no matter what type of needed, the authority of Scripps Networks and the Food2 community will steer you in the right direction.
  • Tips – Whether gourmand or food-newbie, community-provided Food2 tips make navigating the kitchen a snap.
  • Blog – Just like a party where everyone winds up in the kitchen talking food, the best food bloggers and most current food culture content all gather here at the Food2 Blog.
