Favorite cooking shows

Recommended Posts

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.

    • You will probably need that many to make sure you have one that works ūüėĀ. The last grill I bought was a top of the line charbroil with the side burner yadda yadda. Nearly $600.¬† Lasted barely two years with half the burners no longer working right and finally the grates were a rusted mess and it was replaced by a pellet grill.¬†
    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
    • I have had great luck w/ my 3 yr old Big Horn. I have always said that the controller and hopper looked a lot like the Pit Boss ¬† ¬† ¬† yeah... I'd say you've got options!
    • Actually I got a new 4 burner Char Grill with side burner this spring for up at the camper and a new cheaper 2 burner with side burner a week ago for at home, so alone with the new Char Grill¬†smoker I got last year I have plenty of wienee¬†cookers thanks.¬†¬†ūüėė¬†¬†
    • what type of lenses? glass?
    • About 10 years ago I bought a boat that I had to track down a person that was not who I bought the boat from as they owned it many years before that!!!¬† But I am sure that I got the owners name from the DMV to then track down and had her sign a form, brought back to DMV, and then put into my name.¬† I am guessing things have changed as to how to get the name, but sounds silly to have to write a letter to get information that they¬†could use proper discretion to give it to you or not.¬† Good Luck!
    • Traegers are super over-rated and over-priced for what they are. I would rather buy that big horn up above than a Traeger.¬† ¬† I'm fairly certain that Big Horn is just a Pit Boss. Louisiana smokers makes Pit Boss and a bunch of other stuff that other's put their own name on including PF's Cabela's model. I have a small Pit Boss that I am going to use for camping and I like it just fine. I bought that one from a friend for $50 but I'm sure that's still too much for Leech......
    • ok so story time...the one that got away but saw the fish.¬† I was ice fishing on Red when the eye fishing was still closed and we went out for an early season excursion about a mile out of Westwind.¬† It was Saturday evening when I my bobber shot down and the fight was on.¬† Now we were only in probably 5-7 ft of water if that but I "tired" the fish out where I was able to get it directly under the hole and all we could see was a monster northern head filling up the hole!!¬† No one would put there hand near that thing, let alone blindly through 2.5 ft of ice, so we just watched it for a minute or two float beneath the hole until I tried to turn it up the hole and the line just snapped when he decided he had had enough!!¬† That was painful not to touch but seeing it and knowing it was all of 44"+ was better than wondering. ¬† Now to the not seen...Ice fishing Waukanabo by Leech in the deep hole on the north end and I see a mark on the bottom and I hook into it and could not budge it off the bottom.¬† I sat there for a few¬†minutes with rod bent over trying to lift it with nothing but my line slowly moving away until pop it spit my lure!!!¬† I think the hole is over 40' deep and with 4lb test mono I guess as much as I applied pressure the hook wasn't in!!¬† ¬† What could have been~ so those are two stories that stick out in my mind and of the 2 the¬†second stings more as I have no clue what it could have been and that¬†runs through my mind but the northern as¬†cool¬†as it would have been to touch measure and what not, to see it and to know¬†how massive it was, makes it¬†"easier" to¬†deal with.¬†
