12 Days of Foodie Gifts
Still have people on your holiday gift list—those hard-to-buy-for folks, we're guessing? Well, we'll bet they like to eat. With that in mind, the editors of The Food Channel have put together a list of our favorite foodie gift ideas for the season. We're rolling out a new one each day up until Christmas. From fancy breads to bruschetta, from cookies to cookbooks, you're sure to find something that will appeal to Uncle Joe, Cousin Sue or Co-worker Connie...all nice, nothing too naughty.
You Could Be the Next Online Food Star
Think you have what it takes to be the next Food Channel online star? We're introducing a new show called "Pitch Place." If you've always wanted to produce your own food show, now's the time to give it a shot! You can do a cooking demo, a tour of your food haunts, or even a food-related drama or comedy show.
Here's what you need to do in your "pitch": Create a 2-3 minute video show demonstrating to us what your show concept is. Have fun with it—do your cooking demonstration, or show us your comedy or dramatic skills. We're looking for something entertaining, about food, and different than other things out there. We've even thrown in an extra incentive to try out: the chance to win a Coby Kyros 10" Android Tablet Computer, retail value at $349.99!
So, pull out your camera (be it video camera, Flip, iPhone—any of them can work) and start shooting, because all show concepts must be submitted by January 9.
Here's a link to the story with all the details, including a video featuring our own online star, Christen Nehmer. For the official rules, see our Facebook page, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Big Bite Chicago: Inside the NRA
The National Restaurant Association puts on one of the biggest conventions of any kind at McCormick Place, Chicago, every spring. Food vendors, manufacturers, and restaurateurs of all stripes converge to try out new products, share ideas, and grapple with industry issues.

Be sure to tune into this five-part video series.
