Question What's Your Favorite Cooking Show?

What is your favorite cooking show?

There are a large variety of them out there. The Food Network tops the list, I think, followed by PBS and a few scattered about on other regular & cable channels.

Emeril Live is one of mine, followed by 30-Minute Meals, Semi Homemade Cooking, Sara's Secrets, Paula's Home Cooking, Iron Chef and Iron Chef America.

I also like Emeril Lagasse, Julia Child, Burt Wolf, Ming Tsai, Mario Batali, Sam Choy, Bobby Flay, and others. I think Tsai & Choy are my favorites with their great authentic Asian & Hawwian cuisine!

Paula Dean is the Queen of Southern cooking, IMO!

Mine is definitely Good Eats with Alton Brown. I love to learn the science of foods.

How abou t a follow up of your favorite non-cooking show. Mine would be Nip-Tuck followed very closely by Boston Legal.

I really enjoy a show called "Recipe TV". It is a syndicated show where for a 1/2 hour, different chefs cook entrees. Good stuff!!!

i love all of the shows on pbs. i cannot stand some of them on foodtv anymore (i won't bother to list the negatives), but i will still watch alton, giada, and iron chef (japanese, not american). i mean, i'll watch the other ones occasionally, but with the sound turned down.

here's a copy of a list that i posted once of the shows on pbs, and their associated websites. i'm not sure if all of the links still work.

I forgot about him & Giada Delarentis, but I like them also. I figured I'd get several responses on this one.Thanks, guys!

Nowadays I watch all the stuff on GamberoRosso (Italian Cooking network), but from the shows that can be recognised outside Italy, my favourites were the Naked Chef by Jamie Oliver and Ready Steady Cook. Also when I was a kid I loved Galloping Gourmet!!

I love East Meets West, but Ming has left the Food Network. He now does Simlpy Ming on PBS. Haven't seen it yet.
