BBC Food was the name of the BBC's international commercial television channel focusing solely on food until it was replaced in the television markets it was broadcast by BBC Lifestyle. The channel was owned and operated by BBC Worldwide, the BBC's commercial arm.

The channel launched in June 2002 and was available in southern Africa and parts of Scandinavia. While much of the programming was from the BBC, having been shown on other outlets elsewhere, other content from other providers was included in the scheduling.

Well known chefs who have appeared on the channel with their respective programmes have included:

A similar service operates within the UK and Ireland called Good Food, a joint venture between BBC Worldwide and Virgin Media Television.

BBC Food was phased out in Africa in September 2008, and in Scandinavia in December 2008. The channel was replaced by the new BBC Lifestyle. The BBC Food website was also closed.
