Food Network heads down the shore this summer for the new series "Tough Cookies", following sisters Susan Adair and Linda Blank and their loving, squabbling, multi-generational family as they run Crazy Susan's Cookie Company in Ocean City, NJ. Crazy Susan's isn't your average bakery - Susan is a mad genius, cooking up crazy new concoctions every day, and their cookies are as popular as the beach in this town. They have their hands full with lines out the door and phones that never stop ringing - all while baking and managing their employees, who are mostly family members.
Croydon-born cook and food writer Rachel Khoo demonstrates her imaginative flair for the cuisine of Paris. From her tiny Parisian kitchen, Rachel proves that simple cooking can produce sensational results. Rachel's passion for food took her to the French capital some years ago, where she trained at Le Cordon Bleu. She went on to open her own restaurant - the smallest in the city, with just two covers - in her Belleville flat, and it went down a storm with the notoriously tough French critics. Over six episodes, Rachel demonstrates her contemporary approach to classic French dishes, from light snacks to familiar favourites. But she also explores the less familiar food landscape of this cosmopolitan capital, taking us to the city's most inspirational food markets and restaurants and revealing fresh and vibrant influences such as North African and Vietnamese. It provides for a fresh, surprising and mouthwatering insight into the food and the city itself.
