WTF nobody mentioned Americas Test Kitchen or Cooks Country?  Doesn't anybody watch PBS? :huh:


By far my favorites, along with Project Smoke with Reichlin(sp) . I do miss Chris Kimball this season on ATC.

I liked Secrets of a Resturant Chef with Anne Burrell when it was on as well.

Kimball is cool in a really nerdy way...Anne is awesome, then she went to that stupid Worst Cooks or whatever show with RR. :sick:

Top Chef is my favorite by far.  I do enjoy DD&D even though I hate Guy Fieri.  Its weird.

I had America's Test Kitchen a few posts ahead of you!

My wife sees DDD and moans "oh, the fat guy with food on his face again". So I change the channel. She hates the food shows because they make her hungry. Strangely, it doesn't have that effect on me.

Chopped, Top Chef, and Man v Food were the best, with a nod to the Iron Chef shows as well.

Aye....my comprehension isn't what it used to be! :doh:

My wife hates Guy Fieri...not sure why...I like that show too,...but it always makes me hungry!!  The only one that has that effect on me.  I also subscribe to Cook Country mag...it's great!  Tons of recipes...got the latest one the other day on the cover "the ultimate bacon burger"!   WOO HOO!!!

i have the web  subscription to all the websites...use it a ton.

 

Fall all the Man V Food fans, that dude has lost like 100lbs...think he has a new show on somewhere.

 

I never liked that show for some reason

That "The Kitchen" show is good.  Always filled with useful do-at-home stuff and easy fare.  The nerdy old guy has Buffalo ties as well.

 

 

Diners, Drive-Ins, etc... is good too I hate to admit.  Guy Fieri annoys me, and so does the show.... but when the wife is watching it always captivates me for a bit.

I have been a chef the past 30 years and hate celebrity chefs, and 99% of the **** on food network.

As stated, America's Test Kitchen and Cooks County are excellent.

 

This is the greatest cooking show around IMO_

Mike Colameco is a bad dude too.  He runs ironman triathalons and is an excellent boxer as well.  He has more talent in his pinkie then Fieri, rachel ray and bobby flay combined.  !@#$ those posers!

I lose interest in food/cooking shows easily without a competitive element. Chopped is my favorite.

In terms of competition shows, "the next food network star" is pretty good. Not in the same league as top chef. But pretty solid.

I would have to say "A Chef's Life" on PBS that follows Vivian Howard's NC / Southern cooking is one of the easiest to watch. It's down-home and really well-produced.

"Mind of a Chef" on the Netflix is really good for topics and I enjoyed the first chef that was featured on it with the ramen and Japanese influences of his heritage. "Chef's Kitchen" is really artsy and more personality / ambiance driven than about the actual food, but it is visually beautiful.

I don't have pay-TV so I can't rate any of the Food Network shows and such, but when I have seen ones like that where it's competition and judges and whatnot, I just don't like that.

The ATK and Cook's Country ones are really helpful for the aspiring home cook to learn some new techniques. And while I don't hate Chris Kimball as the host, I don't really miss him either.
