Top 5 Best Food Shows
This is my list of the Top 5 Best and Worst Food Shows on television right now. This includes PBS, Network Television, and Cable Television. This list is of programs that are currently producing shows. You will notice that my Best list does not contain "reality" cooking shows like Top Chef, Next Food Network Star, or Restaurant Makeover. Please feel free to chime in with your favorites or post them on your blog, and hit me up wth a trackback. I'd be interested to see what you are in to.
1. Good Eats (FN) - Hands down, the best food show airing right now. Alton Brown's combination of tasty food, chemistry, physics, and comedy really make this a number one program. I watch good eats to learn.
2. Everyday Italian (FN) - As if you didn't see this one coming. Everyone's favorite Italian Beauty cooks up two to three gorgeous dishes each episode without even mussing her blouse.
3. BBQ University (PBS) - Ever wanted to go to school for Barbeque. Well you can. It exists and BBQU is the show for the school. Host Steven Raichlen, a barbeque master, teaches worldy barbeque from the woods of the Allegheny Mountains in West Virgina. Class is outdoors, folks.
4. America's Test Kitchen (PBS) - You might think I'm wishy washy about this show, and that's correct. While the Test Kitchen can get a bit picky, some of the basic instruction through in between their reviews is actually quite helpful.
5. Ham on the Street - This is the new kid on the block, but it had me laughing out loud (I actually LOL'd) when I first saw it. George Duran does interviews and comedy sketches with food thrown in there somehow. It's really entertaining and is up there with my opinion that food television should entertain and not bore.
