I can't believe I didn't see this topic sooner! I love food/cooking shows! I'm not sure if my favorites are on the Food Network or not - I just don't pay attention to what channel I'm on.
I'm with you, Nemeses, I love watching those shows about how different candies are made!
I used to have a major obsession with Iron Chef. Now I catch it when I can. I still can't handle any of the battles where they start with live animals - The Octopus Battle?
I'll admit to a bit of a crush on Bobby Flay. Jamie Oliver is hot too...although, sadly, not actually naked I love watching Nigella Bites (can't remember what network she's on) - that show is just a food orgy. Truth be told, I've got a little crush on Nigella too - she's a hot tomato
Even though Gordon Ramsay does nothing but curse through the whole show, I somehow can't stop watching his shows on BBCAmerica: Beyond Boiling Point, Ramsay's Boiling Point (which is apparently quite low ) and Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. Those shows tend to focus more on the running of a restaurant/kitchen.
Also, I'm still mourning the end of Two Fat Ladies
