The Galloping Gourmet with Graham Kerr

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

I don't watch cooking shows but as a kid, I did love The Galloping Gourmet! Then he just seemed to disappear.

Zebra Seasoning said...

Currently binging The Great British Bake Off and I'm enjoying it much more than I thought I would. Much shouting and hands over my eyes.

In the past it was Bourdain. Not technically cooking, but close enough.

Mooney said...

I like watching Justin the Cajun cook. RIP coonass!

Bee's Knees said...

Jacques Pepin repeats

Also Ciao Italia with Mary Ann Esposito

Emeril Lagasse back in the 90's(?) He taught my husband that men can cook. Until then my husband refused to set foot in the kitchen. After watching Emeril he decided it was okay to cook. No one would take away his mancard. I owe Emeril for helping break that stigma.

I also used to like watching Bobby Flay grill and Guy Fiere's Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. We actually ate at one of the places where Guy filmed. They had great food.

CityGirl said...

Jed's Friend - I'm going to have to watch because of the name itself !!

Flashy Vic said...

The old Keith Floyd cooking shows here in the UK.

Floyd was the dogs bollocks!

He'd be drunk half the time, sorry, way more than half. Most of the filming was outdoors. He'd argue with the cameramen, producers and lighting crew. If the recipe went wrong he'd just walk off swearing or fire the food into the bin.

Susan said...

Emeril was the best. Food Network did him wrong.

Lidia
Ciao Italia
I watch Barefoot Contessa and Giada. But just because there's not much out there now. It's all stupid competition stuff.

Nigella Lawson and Jamie Oliver shows are the tops for me. I don't even know where I can see them now in the US though unless watching online clips.

I like Laura Calder too. She's a Canadian who rocks out French cuisine.

And Gordon Ramsay making over the restaurants and screaming at everyone is just really great tv for me.

I gave up on Top Chef. I used to watch it avidly but I never would stick through the finals.

Mexico: One Plate at a time with Rick Bayless

Sook said...

Yan can cook!!!

Moose said...

Nailed It. It's the best thing on Netflix.

17Steps said...

Great British Bake Off. So stressful...for no reason at all! It’s just a cake,cookies,bread...but I love the drama. No bleeps for swearing, no wine thrown in faces.

Gator said...

Barefoot Contessa. I used to watch Pioneer Woman, but that show has become insufferable with her "perfect" family, including the daughter who was shipped off to bible camp after her arrest.

Faith said...

Halloween wars!!

hothotheat said...

The Great British Bake Off - mainly because I love Sandy and Noel.

MissPeach said...

I like 'The Kitchen' on Food Network.

Unknown said...

I'm off TV shows. /r/GifRecipes/ and /r/Old_Recipes/ Much better than any TV show

Posh Nosh. :-)

Moose said...

Anyone else ever used to love "Two Fat Ladies"? I loved it. It was so much more than a cooking show, it was just an indulgence. Everything was heavy on butter, cream, alcohol, and the shows always ended with a cocktail and a smoke. And I loved how they cruised Great Britain on a Triumph Thunderbird.

Ann said...

I loved Two Fat Ladies. I was sad to hear when the one died. They were a hoot to watch.

Vita said...

Flashy -- Youve mentioned this Keith fellow before, and he sounds AMAZING! I keep forgetting to search Youtube, but this is a great reminder!

I loved the old PBS cooking lineup when my mom would watch. I used to love Top Chef, but have lost track.

I loved the old Food Network seasonal/themed cake decorating battles...Halloween, Simpsons, Christmas, etc. They were great, even though it didn't matter in the least what anything tasted like. They do a couple of variations on them now, but I don't like them quite as much.

I love the Great British Bake Off and The Kids Baking Challenge (Championship?). Duff Goldman and Valerie Bertinelli do such a great job both mentoring and judging these insanely talented kids.

Alana said...

@Moose Yes.. Two Fat Ladies was a favorite of mine.

DarylsBigFan said...

I do not eat sentient beings. Right now I'm having a small salad. Earlier, I had some fruit and rice. Breakfast was a small bar, soy based. That's it for today. Cooking shows, where some jerk roasts a beautiful cow or pig, who suffered in fear?? No way. No way. Wouldn't watch if you paid me

Hotbox said...

I’ve never understood the appeal of cooking shows. I find them as boringly frustrating as watching golf. Why watch people make things I won’t even get to eat when they’re finished?

DarylsBigFan said...

Are you aware of what harvesting of palm oil is doing to the habitat of the Borneo orangutans? Heartbreaking.
Please limit your purchase of products containing *palmitate or palm kernel oil*.It is added to many packaged foods.
Thank you

Nailed it! My cooking/baking skills are around the level of the contestants.

Rosie riveter said...

Oh my. You sound F U N

Flashy Vic said...

@DarylsBigFan.

"Cooking shows, where some jerk roasts a beautiful cow or pig, who suffered in fear?? No way. No way. Wouldn't watch if you paid me"

Hardly a likely contingency. So you can relax. Take some weight off those Birkenstocks or go and knit your supper.

MountainMama said...

Didn't the Galloping Gourmet want to do or did strip naked for one of his episodes? Am I having a very odd hallucination or does anyone else recall this?

gauloise said...

I hate to say it but the Frugal Gourmet, He really changed me as a kid, he spoke about food and how it related to history and culture. You could read is cookbooks like a really good work of non-fiction

Houdini said...

Pasquale on YouTube Cin Cin!

AbbyRock said...

Cooking shows do not appeal to me, however, I do like the holiday shows where people compete for the best decorated cake, cookie, gingerbread, etc.

cheesegrater15 said...

Bakeoff, obvs.

zerooptions said...

The beverly hillbillies! Granny could cure anything with her mountain cooking!

mud said...

i watch them all from new scandinavian cooking to new orleans cooking with kevin belton's to lidia's kitchen to martha bakes... i'll watch any of them because i like to compare what they say or do to how i was taught to cook and bake. <3

Marybel said...

Two Fat Ladies, God rest their souls

missann said...

Emeril Live

rabbit said...

Julia Child when she made Buche de Noel. Spectacular!

Rosemary Young said...

Good Eats with Alton Brown

+1 for Julia Child

Susan said...

Pasquale does rock. He is the cutest.

Yes to all of you re: Julia Child shows and Two Fat Ladies.

I find cooking shows very comforting and I love to cook and bake so I do try to learn something from them. When my son asks to watch cooking shows with me I just have to say yes. He likes those Bobby Flay competition shows too.

OKay said...

I will watch anything Jamie Oliver. He's cute, he's got that Essex accent and he makes food I would love to eat.

GentleBreeze said...

I've never watched cooking shows except in passing, but I love to read cookbooks. Also recipes online.
Just imagining what the ingredients do, and when they are added. Comparing one recipe against the other and reading the comments have taught me a lot.

Also, what kind of name is Bobby Flay? Flay??

Count Jerkula said...

You won, Brayson.

Count Jerkula said...

Justin Wilson was my pop's favorite.

AbbyRock said...

@Count Jerkula, Justin WIlson and his wife went to my parents' house for a boucherie (pig roast). Justin was really a very quiet man. Nice couple

Count Jerkula said...

Thats cool, Abby. My dad always popped for when he would swill the wine he was cooking with.

Redcaz said...

Masterchef UK - The Professionals , as best cookery show

Two Fat Ladies on the BBC

Sd Auntie said...

galloping Gourmet..thanks for the memories. Gaida and her lemon chicken, pasta and drinks was fascinating. and the Pioneer one has great meals. love to watch and hate to cook.

DarylsBigFan said...

I don't knit. But I will be distributing socks on "Thanksgiving", while you are likely scarfing down a poor innocent turkey.

Fuchsia said...

Good Eats with Alton Brown. I used to watch Chopped a lot, but it’s kinda boring now. Sometimes I like to watch some of the other Food Network chefs for ideas, but they’re so annoying I can only take so much.

molly said...

Great British Bake Off and prior to that Julia Child.Guess deep down, I like authenticity........the Brits are funny and to me, not as fake as ours. Same for Julia Child......i.e. losing her chicken due to too much wine.No harm / no fowl. Also like stupid humor.

arbfuldodger said...

I know that I'm days late ...but ANYTHING NIGELLA I love her. When I was married my wife said I was "allowed" with Nigella :)
