When did FoodTV begin?

Continuing a discussion begun here:

When do you feel that Food TV began?

Food network?
Some seminal show?
PBS Saturdays?
A particular chef?

I don't mean "what was the first televised cooking segment/ program/ series"— I mean, when did the American (maybe North American) cultural consciousness develop the concept that there was Food TV?

What's the REVERSE of Jump The Shark? That genesis moment- when the meme took hold. That's what I mean.
