You never thought you’d see it, but food television has officially become popular. Thank you, Julia Child.
These days there are channels like Food Network and Cooking Channel that are dedicated entirely to the wonderful subject of food, which is a dream come true for some of us. You don’t have to be a “foodie” to enjoy great food television. Here’s a list of some of my favorite shows:
Man vs. Food, Travel Channel — The story of a man’s (Adam Richman) journey across America, taking on some of the country’s most famous food challenges. His tagline: “I’m no competitive eater, just a regular guy with a serious appetite.” Adam does have a serious appetite and watching this actor/comedian/sushi chef take on these food challenges is incredible and entertaining. This guy can eat!
Best Thing I Ever Ate, Food Network — Have you ever wondered where the world’s best chefs go to eat? Me too — partly because I’ve always wondered what they eat after they have cooked all day, but also because I want to eat there too. This show features chefs talking about some of their favorite obsessions and where you can get them.
Tyler’s Ultimate, Food Network — A call to the more traditional cooking shows of old: Tyler’s Ultimate gives a look into renowned chef Tyler Florence’s unique cooking style, as he puts the “ultimate” spin on traditional dishes like hamburgers, spaghetti, pancakes and more. If you’re looking for a new and exciting way to cook the classics, check this out.
Iron Chef America, Food Network — Once originating in Japan, Iron Chef has come to America as challengers go head-to-head with an “Iron Chef” to test their cooking skills in the heat of battle at Kitchen Stadium. Each challenger has an hour to create a five-course meal for a panel of judges using a “secret ingredient.” You can’t help but watch in amazement as chefs put together these delicious meals in such short time.
Whether you’re a food television watcher or not, check out some of these shows and you soon will be. Embrace your inner Julia Child.
