Responding to the need for simple explanations of daily kitchen terms, The Food Channel is producing and distributing a new program called Kitchen Lingo.

The show is systematically taking routine kitchen terms, along with some that are more sophisticated, and offering a 40-second demonstration with a first person point of view.

Food Channel Chef Cari Martens and producer Lance Mellenbruch are behind the concept.

“We know that we throw around terms that not every beginning cook knows and figured it was time we broke it down and made an easy video series that would give everyone a tutorial—no matter how accomplished a cook they may be,” Chef Martens says.

The series airs online as well as on several distribution partners of The Food Channel, meaning it will be available to users of Roku as well as available on the soon-to-be-released Food Channel app.

Kitchen Lingo is one of several new shows that has launched on, including Marten’s signature show 90 Seconds in the Kitchen. Other shows include Chat ‘n Dish, Rush Hour Recipes, and Veggie Chest.

The Food Channel has focused in recent years on positioning itself in the quickly moving world of video and digital production, with the goal of moving beyond a recipe and blog site and into a more video-centric experience.

 “We have spent time learning the new landscape and adapting our business strategy in order to be ready for the next wave of entertainment,” says Bob Noble, Food Channel CEO.
