What is your favorite Food TV show?

My current must watch is Chopped, of course I never miss No Reservations. I still have throwdown & good eats on series record.

      Remember when Tylers Ultimate used to be a travel show? He would focus on a dish and go to where ever in the world made it best. He would learn that version, then come home and do his own version. That was a great show.

        I have been a long time fan of Tyler, but I have to say that the last few shows that I have watched I have had to turn off. He has started to heavily breath into the microphone, like he is out of breath during the whole show. I am not sure if it is because he has moved to SFO and stopped walking in NYC, or what, but cooking his food loses his appeal, if I think I'll gain 20 pounds and not be able to complete a sentence without two deep breaths.

          Tyler wears a tight corset underneath his shirt and it effects his breathing. If you watch closely you can see the top of the corset occasionally.

    2. Diners, Drive In's and Dives, Chopped and Hells Kitchen.

      1. My DVR records: No Reservations, Secrets of a Restaurant Chef, Tyler's Ultimate and Barefoot Contessa (I often end up deleting her show after watching about half an episode, it's gotten so dumbed down now), Top Chef, Next Food Network Star and Next Iron Chef.

          add good eats & bizare foods and you its the same as mine :)

        2. Barefoot Contessa and Secrets of a Restaurant Chef

          1. has a food show, Diary of a Foodie, that Gourmet was making. It's excellent. Though I doubt there will be any more, there are 10 episodes for free on Hulu, now.
