Tiga,

This is a question out of pure curiosity. Alton Brown is a chef but why do you think it would be better if he were a master chef?

I was just thinking.. I miss all the old cooking shows. The first one that comes to mine was Julia Child, of course. I also loved the Galloping Gourmet. In the 70's, people cooked without worrying about "is this good or is this bad?" People for generations ate things with butter, cream, etc... and they are living into the very high years.

I'd just like to see a cooking show that just goes back to basics... good wholesome cooking.. cooking things the way they were meant to be cooked.. not substituting this for that..

I've thought some more about my original idea in an earlier post. here's the lineup for the first season:

Season Opener:
Mom comes on and makes shrimp creole, with bread pudding for dessert.
Episode 2:
Julia rises miraculously from the dead and makes coq au vin.
Episode 3:
Wolfgang Puck makes an Austrian pastry.
Episode 4:
Jacques Pepin makes whatever he wants.
Episode 5:
Alton Brown makes pot roast.
Episode 6:
Tony Bourdain makes frites.
Episode 7:
Paula Deen makes biscuits.
Episode 8:
Justin Wilson also rises miraculously from the dead and makes crayfish etouffee.
Episode 9:
Ina Garten makes party appetizers.
Episode 10:
Jacques Torres makes whatever he wants.
Episode 11:
Tyler Florence sits on my lap.
Episode 12:
Sara Moulton makes a casserole.
Episode 13 (Season finale):
Emeril makes roux and we eat roux sandwiches.

I agree.......but no chitterlins please. Best style of cooking on the planet.

i loved that show too luvs. the one with dark hair passed away way too young imho (i think from lung cancer, note to all of you smokers out there) so the show ended. they used to wrap everything in bacon, yummmmmmmm.

Oops, add a bonus episode to my season lineup:
Jennifer and ??-the big blonde) and I decide it's too hot to cook and pop out for a drink.

I don't know what I'd call mine, but it would be centered around kids. They are so much fun in the kitchen!

Two Fat Ladies was my favorite cooking show, not only informative but funny. They would still be on if the dark haired one had not died. The same company produced The Naked (I have to use unclad here, the admin edited it) Chef . I like Jaime Oliver but not as much as the ladies. I still use a few of their recipes, especially their hedgehog meatloaf. The name just makes me laugh, no hedgehog in it though.

I think it would be a great idea to rerun the Julia Child cooking shows. I believe she had several different shows over the years, but the only one I can remember is The French Chef. Sara Moulton was her sous chef for a while a number of years ago, and I like her a lot, but there will never be another Julia. Anyone remember the other shows? How about the drunk cook, Graham Kerr?? Wasn't he named the Galloping Gourmet??

sigh, it seems a bunch of us liked 'two fat ladies.' they should put it on again. they had it on for awhile after the one passed away, but then they put this marathon on and then it was just gone. what a great show...
