I have a TV in the kitchen, so I often have the Food Network on when I'm in there during the day, preparing for dinner or processing garden veggies. Usually I'm only half paying attention, but I pick up ideas sometimes

I swear I'm not addicted to food TV

Maybe I'm just in denial...

I forgot to mention Food Truck Road Trip. DH likes it, and I like Tyler Florence, so we DVR that, too.

Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives with Guy Fieri! Several restaurants in my area have been on the show. I have it on sometimes when I'm making dinner, but that's one that I often don't really catch what they're doing. It's more for background noise.

I was curious because I didn't think most chefs would be willing to spend that much time away from their restaurants for a TV show, so I did a search.
No, I recall DH and I saying that seemed like an incredibly long time to film.The magazine never recalled the story, so who knows?

However, you are probably more accurate about the hours it takes. I do know it takes more than a day with the filming of closeups, the deliberation, etc. They showed the judges playing games on their phones during those times where they weren't on camera in the magazine article.

The deliberations are at least an hour and they edit them to a minute. A local chef was speaking at an event about her experience on Chopped years ago, but she never mentioned how long it took to film, just that it 'isn't anything how the final show looks, takes a long time and it was exhausting", in her words.

In any case, it's chopped together before it goes to print.

I think I figured out the source of the confusion about filming an episode of Chopped. According to the link below, they tape about 80 hours of footage for each show, but that doesn't mean it takes two weeks.

The chefs are there for a 12- to 14-hour day. During that time, they might film Ted Allen saying his opening lines several times. They have nine cameras recording the chefs and judges from different angles for 20 to 30 minutes of cooking time for each segment. After each contestant is chopped, producers interview them for the comments that are eventually shown while they're cooking. Then there are the location recordings of each chef's introduction at their restaurant, home, wherever they work.

So all that would add up to 80 hours or more of footage per episode, but it would only take a couple of days to accumulate that. I imagine the judges are playing on their phones while the crew cleans up the set between segments

A friend of my daughter's was on BBQ Pitmasters 2 years ago and he said the hours they spent filming was grueling for a one hour show. Lots and lots of retakes, false bleeping to make you think they're so upset and just swearing away , Mike doesn't swear but was bleeped constantly during the final airing. The on camera interviews take forever too, for just a few seconds of what they end up keeping. I think he said it took about a week for a one hour show.

Back to the question - my fave cooking shows are ATK, Cook's Country, and Ina. Also just about anything with Alton, but I particularly like the old Good Eats episodes. I wish they'd film new ones.

Favorite Cooking Show?

We loved the old Good Eats series too, Cheryl. It was the lagnappe after CBS Sunday Morning. Sadly they replaced it with Pioneer Woman marathons and repeats of The Kitchen.

Yeah, it seems Pioneer Woman is always on. I usually watch her shows, but they go overboard on the reruns. Same with Guy's DD&D, sometimes I'll check FN and old ones are on one right after another for hours! I like both of them OK, but not constantly.

My cousin Diana and her husband Paul had a cooking show on cable back in the 80's called "The New Way Gourmet". It was fun, kind of ahead of it's time for the era. I watched every one, mainly because they were family and there were so few cooking shows on at the time. They held cooking classes in their home and went on to write and publish several cookbooks. I've made several of their recipes and haven't been disappointed. Just a bit of trivia. LOL
