FOOD NETWORK'S Super Chef Battle: An Iron Chef America Event To Get Special Encore Airing on LOCAL STATIONS on January 10th from 8-10pm ET

Unprecedented Culinary Competition To Be Showcased On New York's WPIX and Hartford's WTXX

HGTV Programming Also May Get Encore Presentation

NEW YORK � January 5, 2010 � Food Network and HGTV are teaming up with two local TV stations, WPIX-TV in New York and WTXX-TV in Hartford, Conn., to bring Cablevision subscribers the chance to view two encore presentations from the popular lifestyle networks' blockbuster New Year's weekend programs.

Viewers in the New York Tri-State area will be able to see the unprecedented culinary competition Super Chef Battle: An Iron Chef America Event in a special, one-time airing on Sunday, January 10th from 8-10pm ET on WPIX-TV (New York's Channel 11) and on WTXX-TV (Hartford's Channel 20). The special episode, which premiered on Food Network on January 3rd, stars Mario Batali, Bobby Flay and Emeril Lagasse and White House Executive Chef Cristeta Comerford in an unprecedented culinary competition.

HGTV also is working with the WPIX and WTXX to showcase original, new programming that premiered on that network over New Year's weekend, with those details still to be determined.

"We have the greatest fans in the world," said Brooke Johnson, president of Food Network. "Nobody likes the situation, with Cablevision customers being the only viewers in the country who can't watch our networks as we introduce a number of new special and series in January. These encore presentations are just a small way to say �thank you' for their support and understanding while we do everything we can to get our networks back on Cablevision."

In Super Chef Battle, Iron Chef America commentator Alton Brown explains that the Chairman has sent the three Food Network chefs to Washington, D.C. for a very special battle and introduces Chef Cristeta Comerford, who will also take part in the competition. The group is then greeted by Michelle Obama, who explains that the chefs will be allowed to use anything found in The White House Kitchen Garden to help them create their meals. After receiving their challenge, the chefs are split into two teams: Flay and Comerford versus Batali and Lagasse. The chefs immediately head to the garden where they are tasked with harvesting their ingredients. Then it's off to Kitchen Stadium where the battle begins. Each team must produce five dishes that showcase the ingredients they selected from the garden and that represent the ultimate American meal. The judges include: chef and best-selling cookbook author Nigella Lawson; Olympic gold medalist Natalie Coughlin; and actress, author and designer Jane Seymour. Ted Allen (Chopped) assists as a guest floor reporter. Iron Chef America is produced by Triage Entertainment.

Installed in the spring of 2009 under the Obama Administration, The White House Kitchen Garden measures approximately 1100 square feet and is located on the west side of the South Lawn. The four-season herb, fruit and vegetable garden features 75 varieties of seeds planted in slightly raised beds using succession planting methods. Cultivated by White House staff and volunteers, produce from the garden and honey from the adjacent beehives are available to the White House Chefs for preparing meals for the First Family and for official functions, and all extra food is donated to Miriam's Kitchen, a soup kitchen near the White House.
