I wish they would bring back vintage cooking shows!

I for one would love to watch the old Galloping Gourmet shows, and vintage Julia Child. I wish they would bring back some of these classics, similar to how "Nick at Night" brings back vintage sit coms!

Does anyone else feel this way? What retro/vintage cooking show would you like to see back on television?

Funny you should mention Julia Child ... our local PBS carries her old shows every Saturday afternoon ... check your local PBS listings ... hope this helps!

:o)

There was a show on BBC that I loved, on location cooking (in the English countryside) with some guy. Also loved Two Fat ladies. Would LOVE to see the old Galloping Gourmet stuff. We also get some of the old Julia Child shows on PBS.

Our local PBS station carries the old Jacque Pepin/Julia Child show. Today they made croque monsieur and croque madame (probably made a mess of the spelling of all this).

Food network should take note. I think that would be a great idea.

ChefKathleen, perhaps we should send The Food Network a link to this post!

And Jacques and Julia were great together, though she seemed a bit annoyed with him sometimes :) I've have to look harder, but I can't seem to find any vintage Julia on our cable PBS channels.

Msmofet, I've forgotten about Yan Can Cook, that was a great show!

I've never seen Two Fat Ladies, I'm going to search youtube to see if anything turns up.

I loved the Fat Ladies, one of them passed away. Also loved Martin Yan and Julia as well as Galloping Gourmet. Yes, I would love to see some of the old shows again.

We have Netflix so I thought I would check over there: Bingo! I remembered that I got John Cleese's "Wine for the Confused" there once-upon-a-wineglass. I found 4 pages (77 entries) of all kinds of cooking shows...from Julia to America's Test Kitchen to people I've never heard of (we dropped cable about 20 years ago when our then-young kids got busy with sports and scouts...just never went back to it). Netflix just might be an option for you, too!
