Cooking shows on Saturday have been a part of my weekends for years. I grew up on The Frugal Gourmet and it continues on to other shows on PBS and Food Network now. Without these cooking shows it just isn’t Saturday for me.
So far today we have seen
America’s Test Kitchen on PBS
The Kitchen on Food Network
Trisha’s Southern Kitchen
Jamie’s 15 Minute Meals on CBS
I like the instructional and informational quality of these shows. We also watch Mexico: One Plate At A Time, Pioneer Woman and sometimes Martha Stewart. There are some great tips I have picked up over the years thanks to these shows. Of course we must giver homage to Julia Child who developed the genre of cooking on TV.
This show is facinating, really it talks about how our favorite foods are made. We like when they talk about something being enrobed in chocolate. The episode we are watching is talking about hot dogs, corn dogs and mustard. Now I am hungry for a hot dog. Every show of Unwrapped is fascinating.
Aarti Sequeira Tweeted me back! This is one cool lady who won “Next Food Network Star” a couple of years ago. She has a great story and an awesome culinary point of view. You can find her on Cooking Channel these days.
