The talk about Restaurant Makeover got me thinking about other food/cooking shows. I'm a huge fan of the original Japanese version of Iron Chef. Any other fans out there?
I have 35 gigs worth of episodes on my computer and I think I've watched them all at least twice - probably more. I'm not so much into the American version though.
Any other cooking shows people enjoy?
I really do enjoy Iron Chef - the American version though simply because the food appeals more to me than say, Sea Urchin ice cream. And because I recognize some of the chefs.
I do like Nigella Feasts and 30 Minute Meals with Rachel Ray - but those are for obvious reasons.
Barefoot Contessa would be good if she didn't start every single recipe with 2 quarts of heavy cream and 4 sticks of butter.
My favourite - aside from Nigella and Rachel Ray is Chef at Home with Michael Smith. Something about his cooking seems so genuine and simplistic.
