Food Network Kitchen on Facebook

I guess I follow it, but Im kinda glad I do.
The past week or two Michael Symon has been cooking out of his home kitchen. Over the past few years Ive distanced myself from the reality contest cooking shows, and the highly produced , or should I say over produced , shows. Ive been going back to the roots of just simple people cooking.

But, now with this quarantine thing going on, they have been putting on certain chefs cooking out of their homes. No crappy background music, no product plugging, no commercials, no screaming chefs just basic cooking ( at least thats what Ive notice so far). Just basic cooking ( and semi interactive with people messaging in questions real time).

I really enjoy watching someone cooking out of their own kitchen, using basic products ( for the most part). I really feel Im learning and enjoying this more than what the network and cooking shows have evolved into these days. Maybe Im just old and crotchety, but it feels like a modern version of the good old PBS shows.

As I mentioned in another thread, Jacques Pepin tosses out a recipe mostly every day out of his kitchen too. The other day he made a soup out of leftovers while cleaning out the fridge ( something we can all relate too)

I also enjoy seeing their kitchens, their layouts. They all seem so comfortable in their settings.

***They play it live, but then leave it up to watch at your own convenience too***

I watched a few as well via You Tube, but I sorta, kinda, liken
them to the "Celebraty" videos, not to mention, alot are monetized.
Since we no longer have traditional Television, I have a really broad
range of things to watch, for free too just sayin' ...

Here's a link to a bunch of Michael Symons videos.

https://www.facebook.com/search/str/...G&epa=SEE_MORE

I think I see them daily cause I follow Food Network on Facebook.

And I personally find it down to earth cooking ( at least in Michael Symons' case). Just some guy with knowledge cooking in his kitchen. ( in his slippers with his dog barking and running around until he gives it cheese)

I think The Michael Symon ones go Live each day at 5pm Eastern Time. But are available anytime after that, just not a live feed ( not missing anything by not watching it live). Not sure if there are others doing the same. I just happened to stumble on his videos a few times.
