Favorite cooking shows

15 posts in this topic

Anyone got any favorites? Or even watch them at all?

America's Test Kitchen & Barbecue University w/Steve Raichlen on PBS are good. Also like to watch re-runs of the original Iron Chef Japan on FLN & Iron Chef America among other shows on Food Network.

Probably watch "Good Eats" the most, but "Diners, Drive ins, and Dives" is good. Anytime they do BBQ competitions, I try to catch those. Although not really cooking shows, I like "Man vs Food" and Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Foods.

The first Rachel Ray show I watched was titled "first date food" or something like that. She made her boyfriend chili dogs. I thought that was pretty awesome, plus she is easy on the eyes, somewhat grin

Hmmmm, I like Racheal Ray and Everyday Italian (not just for the cooking though :-)) Diners, Drive ins and dives is good. I used to watch a lot of Good Eats but haven't in a while.

Good Eats ofcourse Dinner Impossible And Diners, Drive Ins and Dives.

Rachale Ray's novelty wore off and now she just talks to much but she still is adorable.

Oh yea 1 more America's Test Kitchen on PBS ranks up there with Good Eats.

I watch quite a bit of Food TV, I really enjoy cooking and have a bunch of restaurant experience...

Iron Chef America is one of my favorites. I would love to have competed against some of the yahoo's I worked with in kitchens, lol

Good Eats is full of information. Alton can be a bit anoying at times but I like the show. Lots of stuff on there about the chemestry and why of cooking

Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives is a great show. It actually gave me alot of ideas for specials to try at the last place I worked.

Some of the "reality" shows are entertaining also. Top Chef and Next Food Network Star are good. I really like Chopped - thats the one where they give 4 chefs random surprise ingredients for meal courses then eliminate one chef after each course.

Bobby Flay's shows especially the early grilling shows were great. They got me makeing my own marinades and sauces. Lots there about balancing flavors...

Alton Brown Rocks!!! He makes a lot of stuff Id be willing to eat without spices Ive never heard of..

Everytime rachel Ray says YUM-O, I want to pull out my hair

I wonder how long Gordon Ramsey would be able to put up with her.

You guys can say all you want about Giada and Sandra Lee, but while they are nice, they aren't nearly as nice as Aida on Food Network's Ask Aida. If you haven't seen her, check out their HSOforum. I think you'll agree.

    • Whatever happened to reinhardt1?  He caught a lot of heat down here because he was so enthralled with Michelle Bachmann, but when he left Sillytown, he moved to the cooking thread, and he was very knowledgeable about cutting and preparing meat, since he was a butcher by trade.  I never spent much time in the cooking forum, but I would read reinhardt's posts occasionally.   I didn't mind Lmitout, but I've been frequenting these forums since the wild & wooly days - back when Jackpine Rob & the crew was on here.  Lmitout was pretty tame in comparison to some of those guys...   One who comes to mind went by the handle "Mariner Magnum"...                
    • Fun time at the river
    • There you go again, calling names.   "senile elders"  "brainwashed baby boomers"   "need the blue pill"     Are you serious dude?   And you wonder why folks don't take your alternative chiropractic talk seriously? 
    • some are still here, just not as busy posting.
    • The administration I referred to was not the Obama administration.  Don't edit me when quoting.  It was the HSO administration. 
    • Like I said I pop in from time to time , not like before. I do remember you rundrave stepping in and commenting on all the babble when the cooking thread crashed, you think that was the only babbling going on here? Hey, your a mod and we're just trying to cool things down, I get that.  In my opinion it came down to the cooking thread was dominating the rest and some didn't like it.  But if you want an answer on politics ,you don't have to look hard..
    • Rage, ok, thats funny. More so making light of rebels transparency regarding not being able to handle differing opinions and allowing his homeboys to throw out as much smack talk as me, only i come a little harder and sensative people struggle with their emotions.  Hence deleting a post with no rules breaking.     This whole post was a story, made up to start something. Nice troll work OP, i knew it a long time ago but played along cause it was fun but now its just a bunch of senile elders or brainwasher baby boomers that cant exchange without feeling like they were talked down to. So soft and zero passion for anything worthwhile, thats why you all need the blue pill.    
    •   Well shistter,  I had to WiKi the curry wurst so it looks like a real deal!   Currywurst (German pronunciation: [ˈkœʁiˌvʊʁst][1]) is a fast food dish of German origin consisting of steamed, then fried pork sausage (German: Bratwurst) typically cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup, a sauce based on spiced ketchup or tomato paste, itself topped with curry powder, or a ready-made ketchup seasoned with curry and other spices. The dish is often served with French fries.
