Food shows you miss......

I miss the early Bobby Flay when he would cook with that guy from the south.The Two Fat Ladies,Keith Floyd cooks, Graham Kerr,Justin,the original Iron Chef. There should be another cooking channel devoted to these classics. Any you remember and miss ?

  1. difficult to answer w/o being snarky.

    I DID like 2 Fat Ladies, but was that really a cooking show?

    "oh yesss, Daddy always had his pigeons flown up from 'Cay-ro' wouldn't touch the local birds, hmm, no"

    nah I'd like to turn it back to 1970's PBS shows.

            reruns Sunday mornings on CC

            You can continue to support the show (or AB) by buying his books and attending his speaking engagements.

              It's on Friday nights too. And a few other times throughout the week.

        2. I had my fill on the Two F Ladies and ICJ reruns during the first years of Cooking Channel.

          While I mainly remember Frugal Gourmet and Jan Can Cook from the 1980s, I don't have any real desire to see them again. In reruns the quirks of the chef hosts get old quickly.

          How many of us reread old familiar cookbooks and cooking magazines just for old times sake? I don't.

                    ancient and outdated methods are fascinating. would I use them? well that's a different question.

              1. Jacques Torres dessert show

                The show with the white guy in glasses and black woman whee they traveled to people's homes and tried their best dishes

                1. Well, it's a food-related show.... I liked the short-lived one season of "Kitchen Confidential" loosely based on Anthony Bourdain's book and starring Bradley Cooper.
