Yes, a lot of those Iron Chef episodes are reruns

Almost everything on Food network has always seemed very.... I don't know, contrived, to me. Most of my favorite cooking shows (aside from the original Iron Chef - forget this ICA junk) are on PBS. Lydia's Italy/Family Table, and anything with Jacques Pepin in particular.

I Second that.

Lydia, Jacques, Jacques and Julia reruns, Maryanne Esposito . I personally prefer these kinds of cooking shows. Ive had the pleasure of seeing live demonstrations of Maryanne and Jacques recently, and met Lydia at a book signing last year. Jacques is full of so much culinary knowledge and displays it in such a matter of fact way, which i enjoy, instead of being lectured too or having the same old facts repeated over and over again.

I'd like to add Cook's Country to the list. I always learn from that show on PBS.

I couldn't agree more about Jacques Pepin on PBS........actually his "fast cooking, my way" is the best cooking show on TV, in my opinion.
I've been watching him for years, LONG before the Food Network........just love his easy style, not to mention that French accent......I well remember when we were both younger.
Yeppers, Jacques is my "go to" guy for a nice and easy half hour show of cooking.. with a nice glass of wine. I record all his shows in case I miss one.
He's still not hard to look at either.
