    Cooking Channel: "Stay Hungry." ???

    That's their slogan and a pretty poor one at that, imho.

    To me it either means don't eat (starve) OR always waant to eat (gluttony).

    Cooking Channel is a cable TV channel in the USA, maybe elsewhere in the
    world.

    How you interpret their slogan?

    Pretty much as you do, Andy. A poor one. I thought it the dumbest of any.

    I don't watch that show but the first thing that comes to mind is gluttony.
    To me it says eat more! Not a really great thing to promote, IMHO. How
    about "Cook More!" for slogan, instead?

    Probably not in the way they intended it to be. I think they were
    going for "stay interested in cooking" but it doesn't fully translate
    into that for me. It's kinda cutesy. I don't hate it, but I don't love
    it either.

    Jill,

    A 1,000x improvement using your slogan!

    You do realize you'll never get a job as a Kreative now?

    Best,

    Andy

    Cooking Channel is a how-to and information channel, like DIY, on the
    subject of cooking. It is the channel for those hungry for information
    about food, recipes and techniques. Stay hungry...(for knowledge).
    Because the phrase "hungry for knowledge" is widely understood, the
    marketers probably decided "stay hungry" was a fun play off of it.

    It is not a channel about gluttony, Food Network is a better fit for that;
    gluttony is about satiety and would be better represented by a slogan of
    "never hungry" or "always full". The majority of Food Network's shows seem
    to be about eating massive amounts of foods to satisfy emotional and
    physical cravings with fat and sugar in copious amounts.

    If you have to explain it, it is not working.
