    Two Fat Ladies : Cooking Channel

    They used to come on pbs every saturday.

    I can watch Julia Child as long as it's not one of the later shows. It is just hard to watch her all hunched over.

    Throwdown w/Bobby Flay

    Some of Emeril Lagasse's shows are fun to watch too...

    I agree with sterling about Paula. Rachel Ray falls into that category too. :meh:

    Good eats is my favorite among the current shows.

    All time favorite would be Jeff Smith AKA the Frugal Gourmet. I still use a lot of the recipes and techniques I learned from watching his show. I also have many of his cook books.

    I like Ming Tsai's shows and Sara Moulten when she was on Food Network (both now on Create). America's Test Kitchen is good too.
    I used to love watching Food Network but they've changed over the past 10 or so years. It used to be about cooking; now it's all reality based competition shows.
    Cooking Channel is what Food Network was 10 years ago so I watch that channel more. I also like the Create Channel because it seems like all the former chefs from Food Network are now there.

    Guy Fieri's a nice guy to talk to in person, but his TV personality is abrasive, I can only watch that show on mute.

    Chuck,

    Thats hilarious, my wife usually gets up and leaves the room after a few minutes. She says he's annoying. However, I stay to see what the people are cooking. I like the diversity of the show myself.

    That's a great point, it's the people behind the diners that really makes the show, you see alot of cool personalities and foods.
    I like the episodes where Granny's the head cook, Mom and Pop make the menus, Uncle Leo runs the grill and gli cugini alternate between waiter and busser every other day.
