Exactly. Justin was the best, RIP. Never missed his show on Sat morning. Bought 2 of his books and have made many of his recipes.

Yea, they have dumbed the channel way down with that Sandra Lee b.s.. Here are some shows I catch once in a while:


Barefoot Contessa: everything is made with a pound of butter + heavy cream. Try her Chicken Piccata.

Paula Deen: She's the down-home version of the snooty Barefoot. Same amounts of butter + cream in every dish. I don't really watch her much. Try her wild rice salad. Oh, and her two "boys" are annoying.

Alton Brown: He's good with science. The nerd of the crew.

Giada: She'll add mascarpone cheese to any dish and call it Italian.

Bobby Flay: The master of blender sauces.

Jamie Oliver: Great show. You'll have to do some translation from English to English if you know what I mean.

Tyler Florance: This guy cooks up some great stuff. It's hard to listen to him talk though. He speaks in a strange stoner language.

Molto Mario: He's the best. I record his show on the Fine Living network (I think). I don't think he's on Food TV anymore. Ming Tsai's show is there too.

On PBS I record Cook's Illustrated. I have Rick Bayless' cookbooks, but I've never seen his show. I'll have to check it out.

Jacques Ppin is my favorite PBS chef. His recipes are great and he offers a lot of technique and tips that have really built the foundation of my early cooking. Especially when it comes to preparation and plating.

I don't always agree with Juilia Child's ideas with what goes together, and some recipes like cooking lettuce just don't sound that tasty.

Being Boston, I have heard countless stories about Ming and Julia. I ride my bike by Blue Ginger a lot. Never ate there; don't know why it's 9 miles from my house.

Rick Bayless' show is my favorite followed by Cooks Illustrated. If you're into Mexican food, get any of Rick's cookbooks. They're some of the best for that cuisine of cooking. I still get requests for tamales. Mark Bittman's shows are good too. Haven't seen them in a while though. :-(

Hopefully my PBS station will carry the Eric Ripert show. Sounds interesting and he's a excellent chef.

If they replay it, catch "Spain - On the Road Again" with Mark Bittman, Mario Batali, Gwenyth Paltrow and smokin' hot Claudia Bassols. Made me want to go to Spain to sample the food.

I've seen a few now and it is interesting. There seem to be three segments. The first is some location that inspires him (last was an organic farm), Le Bernardin (his restaurant), and finally his home kitchen, where he shares a recipe related to the first segment.

Caught a new one (new to me anyway), but I'm drawing a blank on the name. The episode I saw, Lorraine Bracco was a guest, and they were in Marrakesh (sp?) making traditional Moroccan dishes.

Found it. It's called Gourmet's Adventures With Ruth. Today's ep is in Laos. I don't recognize the guest (missed the first couple of minutes). She's an Aussie. Just now, they made a type of traditional Laotian salad featuring ant eggs. Yum!

This just gets better and better. They went to a silk factory, and had fried silkworm, and silkworm poo tea.

Not yet. I keep forgetting to check the local listings and find out when it's on. It's not part of my usual Saturday block of cooking shows.

BBQ-U is on. Probably started at 11:00AM. IDK though. I got out of the shower and my daughter was watching it, again. She seems to really like the cooking shows. It's on channel 17 in Campbell if that means anything to you Jeff.

Seeing as I'm on the opposite coast, I doubt we have the same schedule.
I checked. One of the local PBS stations has a great website that lets you look up info on every show they broadcast. Unfortunately, they don't show BBQ-U, apparently. The site for the other station sucks. I also haven't had any luck finding it locally on tvguide.com or Zap2It.

You've really got to listen to Giadda when she describes what she's eating . I swear she uses innuendo at least once or twice a show . "Little Soft Pillows of Heaven" and "Gooey , Salty , Creamy Goodness" are just a couple examples .

It's tough to beat Lidia's Italy. She looks like a cajun woman from my dad's side of the family,
nearly bald and man-looking. But that lady cooks like I like to cook. And she likes to drink.

The one I cannot stand is the one where the boyfriend is there to provide low-quality musical
interludes on guitar, and I think they even use a band.
Another one I loved until I had gotten about enough latina cocina is the Puerto Rican, Christina.
She gave me a routine boner from time to time. I really like the cat from Spain. His accent is half
the show for me.

My 7 yo loves cooking shows so of course I got her some Giada DVD's. I would love it if she were to try my cannoli.

Granted, these guys have to repeat alot, but every recipe he does he has to re-tell what indirect
grilling is, show how nice the hinged grills are for placing coals on the fire while cooking, and his
speech pattern gets on my nerves. And "here at BBQ U, we like to ..." has got to be the phrase
that sets me off worst. But he can be topped by the cat that wears the tablecloth shirt.

I've been trying to figure out the difference between America's Test Kitchen and Cook's Country. Cook's Country has a live audience for the taste testing, other than that, the shows seem identical.
