An Insider's Guide to The Food Network

You've always loved eating, but the time has come to start cooking for yourself. Whether you're a new graduate looking to leave behind your top ramen days or a foodie lacking kitchen skills, entering the cooking world is no small task. That's why the Food Network is around -- a resource for culinary aficionados and amateurs alike. But with so many different chefs to choose from, where do you start? We've created a guide to the help you navigate the Food Network and get going on your culinary adventures.

Paula Deen

The South's most popular chef, Paula Deen is known for her filling, hearty and wholesome Southern cooking. With guidance from grandma at a young age, Paula fought her way to find success doing the thing she loves most -- feeding people. Her famous chicken pot pies, banana pudding and BBQ sandwiches put her on the culinary map in Georgia, and remain recipe favorites for her widespread television audience.

Rachael Ray

This much loved talk show host prides herself on being a cook -- not a chef. Her quick fix meals and budget dinner ideas are very useful to new cooks with money and time restrictions. Although Rachael shies away from boasting about her culinary finesse, she's a teacher in her own right. Watch her chop with abandon and toss together meals that look like they've taken hours to prepare. If you study her way around the kitchen, you'll be a top cook in no time.

Aaron McCargo, Jr.

Aaron McCargo was once a struggling chef who yearned for a place in the culinary spotlight. After beating out thousands of culinary hopefuls and landing his own time slot, Aaron found his calling as a Food Network personality. As the host of Big Daddy's House, Aaron imparts his love of big, bold flavors and family-style cooking to a dedicated audience. With an inviting smile and warm personality, this trained chef makes cooking a relaxing experience that the whole family can share. If you're looking for some home-style chili or buffalo wings, Aaron's your man.

Alton Brown

As the kookiest cook in the kitchen, Alton Brown dissects a recipe like it's a science project. For novice meal makers who need a step-by-step tutorial for crafting a dish, this Food Network host is the best cooking counselor out there. Good Eats blends Alton's training at the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vermont, experience as a cinematographer, and undeniable flair for food. Not only does Good Eats offer a crash course in food prep 101, its historical approach to mealtime is sure to captivate any cook.

Giada De Laurentiis

Putting a fresh spin on Italian cuisine, Giada knows how to make dinner delectable for eaters of any age. Her acclaimed cookbooks and food products make it easy to cook like her, with or without the TV on. Giada grew up surrounded by Italian culture: Born in Rome and the granddaughter of a restaurateur, the culinary school graduate went on to train under Wolfgang Puck. Her Emmy-winning cooking show, Everyday Italian, speaks to an audience that strives to cook better with every attempt. She also explores the food and restaurant selection from around the U.S. on her prime time show, Giada's Weekend Getaways...Because a good trip is never without a good meal.
