QVC Host David Venable Pens Second Cookbook

That sly puss David Venable, QVC’s kitchen king, has a new cookbook coming out.

David Venable’s second cookbook is called “Back Around the Table: An “In the Kitchen with David” Cookbook.

The new tome, which follows his 2012 best-seller, is scheduled to launch Sunday at noon during QVC’s most popular cooking show “In the Kitchen with David,” which the Southerner hosts twice weekly.

Venable’s fans will be able to order the cookbook during an exclusive three-month pre-sale. The book will be published on Oct. 7.

“I was overwhelmed by the positive support I received for my first cookbook,” Venable said in a canned statement. “Working with Random House once again provides me with the opportunity to bring my latest and greatest comfort food favorites to foodies across the country. My new recipes in ‘Back Around the Table’ aspire to bring families and friends together and keep them coming back to the table for more mouth-watering food and memorable times.”

Venable’s cookbook from Ballantine Books features more than 100 brand-new recipes, as well as 30 fan favorites.

The book is arranged like a collection of “mini” comfort-themed books including chapters, such as “Mix and Mingle,” “Quick and Easy” and “Gather and Share.”

America’s Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond (who the hell is she?), a frequent guest on “In the Kitchen with David,” wrote the cookbook’s foreword.

QVC will feature a special edition of the cookbook, which will contain the bonus chapter “Comfort & Joy” with 10 additional holiday-themed recipes.

“David’s infectious love for food and passion for cooking for his family and friends has made ‘In the Kitchen with David’ one of the most popular and well-regarded programs in the country,” said Karen Fonner, QVC’s vice president of content marketing and programming.

“’Back Around the Table’ perfectly captures David’s enthusiasm and is sure to bring families together as they enjoy their favorite comfort foods.”

Venable joined QVC as a program host in 1993 and has since helped establish and build the multimedia retailer’s gourmet food business.

There are more than 350,000 copies in print of his 2012 cookbook, In the Kitchen with David: QVC’s Resident Foodie Presents Comfort Foods That Take You Home.

Over the years, Venable has welcomed some of the most prominent chefs and food celebrities to “In the Kitchen with David” such as Giada De Laurentiis; Lidia Bastianich; Emeril Lagasse; Rachael Ray; The Chew’s Michael Symon; Carla Hall and Daphne Oz; TLC’s Cake Boss Buddy Valastro and many more.

    Ree Drummond, aka “The Pioneer Woman”, has a hugely popular blog, 3 highly successful cookbooks and her own show on The Food Network. THAT’S who she is.

  2. Abigail Says:

    Ree is the BEST thing on these cooking shows, an actual, normal mother who cooks great food, the others, nah, especially Giada, her food does not look tasty at all, congrats to David, now to get him to stop making those goofy faces when he eats!

    Not impressed with the Pioneer Woman. She makes a lot of sexist statements that men don’t drink sangria, men drink beer, men do this, women do that. I think a lot has to do with her upbringing. And of course David will utilize her now that his former bestie Paula Deen is on the do not discuss list. Hahaha

    There was a blind item that when Todd English was on HSN, he was having an affair with the female host who appeared with him most often. I never watched those segments. The prettiest host who does cooking shows is Callie Northhagen. Anyone have an idea who that host might be?

    • Mary Ann Says:

      Just saw this, estrogen. In the times I watched Todd, Joy Mangano was always on with him no matter who was hosting. Her behavior and body language suggested that she was attracted to him. He didn’t “respond”, but I always wondered from Joy being so close and somewhat flirtatious, if they were having an affair.
      From what we know now, Todd was even friskier in the bedroom than he was in the kitchen. With everyone except his former wife. I think that where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire. And this happened every single time they were on together. I moved in 2011 and no longer get HSN in my area, so I never saw his last shows on there. But I think they were an item, at least for awhile.
      I wish I’d seen your post earlier; hope this helps.

      • Val Says:

        I agree, Mary Ann. I think Todd English may have been having an affair with Mangano. If not, she sure as heck wanted to!!!
        She was all over Todd and her body language was very obvious when they were on together. I don’t know what she saw in him, but she is a shark herself.
        The image of them together is amusing. If it happened, I wonder whose ego was bigger, lol. But it was Joy Mangano, not a host, Estrogen. Unless I missed something …and if so, I’m sure someone on here will let us know.
