I had fun watching Master Chef and Barefoot Contessa. I love Nigella's show, simple and easy to cook. I also like Bake with Anna Olsen And Buddy's Bakeshop.

Good Eats will always be a favorite. Alton Brown just breaks everything down, which allows you to change a recipe to suit your tastes.

I also like any show that he does. He's wonderfully weird :lol:
Agreed; how many other cooking shows involve Punch and Judy puppets as the competing concepts of "Tender" versus "Flaky" pastry? Now I want to make a buckle or crumble. :D

I still watch him in reruns.
One of the best ones was using the t-rex skeleton puzzle to show how to cut up a chicken. :animals-chicken: *snicker* :lol2:

I do too; I let a few pile up in the DVR and set aside an evening for marathon watching.

I can't remember which episode has that. Was that one of the ones where he taught the viewer about how to overcome basic cooking problems, like the different temperatures and times needed for cooing different parts of poultry.

One of my faves was the one on sustainable seafood where he played a much older version of himself and was guiding his 'granddaughter' around to a seafood counter and discussing the history of fish consumption. The Sweeney Todd one with Shepard's pie and chicken pot pie is a great Halloween episode.

I actually can't recall exactly what the episode was. :shock:
I want to say it was a chicken specific episode, but I could be wrong.
They're seriously all great. The man is a genius, with food and with humor.

Now I need an Alton fix. :lol:

The bake off! It’s such a feel-good programme and I love all the recipes they make. Everything about it is just so comforting!

Tough but good question I too like the food network star but I think my favorite would be Iron Chef America. I just love watching and learning all the cooking techniques.

Good Eats! I love Alton Brown and his entertaining and scientific method of preparing food!
