No Reservations (Trav)
Cooks Tour (Food Network...they're not replaying them...oh well)
Into the Fire (FN)
The Hungry Detective (FN)
Ciao America w/ Mario Batali (FN)
Gordon's Kitchen Nightmares (BBC America)
I've only watched 2 episodes so far: Jose Andres and the show on Italy.
I like the show but don't LOVE it, yet.
The Jose Andres episode followed him around his "creative" kitchen and then went off on relavent tangents to feature Harold McGee and then a specialty olive oil shop in Barcelona.
The Italy episode focused on how travelers can dine with natives instead of opting for restaurants.
It is not pretentious at all. How pretentious can a show be when Ruth Reichl is touting PB, Mayo and Olive sandwiches, and caramel corn. The PB sandwich sounds very intriguing... I enjoy that she does not take herself and food too seriously, but has fun with it.
To me, the show is about learning about how others engage with and enjoy food. Not preachy.
Americas Test Kitchen
Lidia's Family Table
And there's some Scandanavian cooking show that I catch every so often that I am beginning to like.
Wishlist for "bourdain"
Wishlist for "ramsay" (I'll TiNO the Hell's Kitchen stuff)
Wishlist for Jacque Pepin
* Good Eats
* Iron Chef America
* Mexico One Plate at a Time
* No Reservations (And wishlist for Bourdain)
I don't have Tivo, instead I have comcast DVR which is basically the same idea, so here we go:
joan cusack's local flavors (taking that off today - hate that show)
how to cook everything with mark bittman
lidia's show (forget the name)
rick bayless - mexico
gourmet's new show on pbs
some holiday cooking show based in singapore on azn tv - it rarely comes on the tv
btw, I have edited this post like 4 times, because I keep remembering shows that I continually watch.
No Reservations-Travel Channel
All PBS cooking shows except Weir Cooking (she drives me nuts)
Modern Marvels- History Channel (food topics)
Gordon Ramseys Kitchen Nightmares and The F Word Show on BBC
(I don't tivo Mario or Sara anymore as they are all re-runs)
Gordon Ramsey's F Word - great show, and the guy is sexy too...
