    TV cooking shows

    Any of you fans of cooking shows? What would your favourite cooking shows be?

    Mine are Oliver's Twist, The Iron Chef, Food 911, ... ... okkkk I admit, I watch too many cooking shows!

    When I was in college, my cable carried local Japanese language station, and they would broadcast "The Iron Chef." I would watch it all the time, even though I did not understand Japanese. I was glad to see it come on Food TV Network. Sometimes I think it is equivalent to the food they show on Fear Factor! Ha ha ha...

    Anyway, lemme know what your fave cooking shows are!

    Marc

    I've got to go with Iron Chef, Marc, as that one makes me laugh all the time. *gong*

    I watch Emeril but he has annoying habits. I also like Food 911 sometimes--interesting to see the different homes/people/styles of cooking. I think the Two Fat Ladies are hilarious. Sometimes Julia Childs can be interesting or funny (even though she doesn't intend it.) I enjoy Dinner and a Movie on cold, winter Friday nights. Iron Chef sucks.

    Emeril was so overplayed on the food network, I can't even stand the sound of his voice now.

    I'm tired of Emeril. Even if I didn't have to hear him shout BAM! I think just reading that is annoying enough! I do like cajun food though, but not Emeril. Wish Food TV got rid of him already.

    I remember Galloping Gourmet... seemed like he was drunk all the time! Heh heh... When I was growing up, I used to watch Ciao Italia and Frugal Gourmet too.

    Tough pics!!!!

    I had to go with Good Eats over Iron Chef only cause I can make what Alton is cooking. I mean where am I going to get horse main fat? (saw that on iron chef twice). My other fav's are Food 911, and 2 fat ladies. I have to agree with everyone that Emiril is getting old now. Too much airplay. I also like food unwrapped too. As for Frugal Gourmet- Jeff Smith is the one that really got me into cooking food. I used to watch him when I worked overseas on AFRTS.

    I think Iron Chef is the best show. Chefs normally don't share their secret recipes with people but in this show at least I get to see how creative they are in terms of cooking.
    I also like Nigella Bite/Forever Summer and Oliver Twist/Naked Chef. For some reason, I find Emeril Live and Martha's Kitchen very boring. They motivate me to change channels everytime when I see them.

    Ohhhh, Nigella Lawson is one of my favourites too! I just love how sloppy she can be and she would just say heck with it. It's always a riot to see her eating midnight snacks at the end of programmes! LOL

    I do watch Martha's Kitchen, but not for the right reason. I love to make fun of the way she is... how she treats her guest cooks and so on!

    That's funny, kuifje! I don't really like the way Martha interacts with her guests either. The worst, though, is Sara Molton. She doesn't listen to a word her guests say. She just hurries them along with "uh huh, uh huh, yeah, OK, uh huh". It bugs the crap outta me. I can't watch her.
