I used to love "Calling All Cooks", the show where the host didn't cook, but traveled to the homes of regular folks and had them cook their signature recipes. I've always believed that the best dishes are the tried and true ones made by home cooks that have been passed down from generation to generation.

I haven't been watching Food Network much lately except to root for JAG on the The Next Network Star.

I was recently reminded of Jack Hourigan, the co-host of How to Boil Water and, I think, one of the most appealing personalities, not chefs or even cooks, on the channel. I don't recall the name mentioned on DC so, since it might not be very well known, I looked for a picture. In so doing I found this article Jack wrote. For some reason it touched me.

Good Eats. I know Alton can be over the top sometimes, but it makes a potentially dry subject (food science) quite entertaining and informative. I don't usually use any recipes from his show, but I pick up some information that helps me understand why I was taught certain things in the kitchen.
