Justin Wilson, alas, I cannot find his shows on regular tv anymore.

I used to watch cookings shows all the time. All the way back, long before what we have now. As kid I watched "The Galloping Gourmet".

Today, I watch about one show a week with no apparent choice of show or chef.
Some of the second tier PBS stuff seems to get the most interest from me.
Especially location inspired shows.

Barefoot Contessa. My style of cooking is very similar to Ina's. I've used many of her recipes and have always had great success and rave reviews.

Yes, I enjoy Chopped but sometimes the editing is kind of off. Did you know it takes them two weeks to film one show? Food Network Magazine wrote a story about it last year. RR's 30 Minutes or Less took 8 hours to shoot. On both shows lots of setups for close ups takes up extra time. That countdown in the end is added / dubbed in... They aren't really rushing and plating like they want you think they are. Technical stuff aside, I enjoy seeing what they do with the ingredients. It's inspired me to use what I have on hand with very successful results.

I've been watching TV cooking shows since Julia Child started them. I really enjoy Julia, Jacques, Martin Yan and Justin Wilson from back then. I can still see some Jacques shows but the others are pretty much gone.

Of the current crop, I watch ATK and Cook's Country. I just found BBQ with Franklin on Create TV. It's all about Texas BBQ.

I have no interest in cooking competition shows.

Favorite Cooking Show?

I love Cutthroat Kitchen and its spinoff, Camp Cutthroat. Who knew Alton Brown could be so evil? It's more for entertainment than for the recipes. I also like Chopped and Masterchef.

Ina Garten is so calm and sweet. I use a number of her recipes.

I grew up on Julia, Jacques, Justin, Martin, and Graham Kerr. While others were watching soap operas, I ran home from school to watch cooking shows.

I think you must have misunderstood something in that article about Chopped. According to this, it takes 12 hours to film an episode: https://www.yahoo.com/tv/s/yahoo--tv...222307053.html

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.

I like Chopped, Master Chef, Rick Bayless's Mexico One Plate at a Time, Bobby Flay's Barbecue Addiction and Beat Bobby Flay (we DVR the new episodes). I also watch Barefoot Contessa and Pioneer Woman sometimes.

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
