Food Shows...

My lovely wife watches every food show there and continually berates some of the contestants..

 

We are both currently enjoying the The Great British Baking Show. It's a simple departure from the overblown American food show challenges.

Are you trying to say you have been Chopped from a Cutthroat Kitchen with a Tripple G because of fallout from the food wars?

I was ready to jump on my Food Truck and start searching for the Worst Cooks among the celebrity, adult and Junior Master Chefs...

It seems to be a Restaurant Impossible...

I love the cooking shows that aren't a competition. Something that's an enjoyable activity shouldn't be competitive.

Doesn't this fall into the category of a competitive sport?? Hmmm?

It's funny you mention that since Dump-n-Stir is what sent the Food Network to popularity and now you can hardly find one - they now have a network full of so-called "reality" shows

:DI like to pretend I'm playing along with chopped - I write out all of the ingredients and then pretend what I would make with them :lol: That's how someone with poor health occupies theirself after studying lol

I love the Great British Bake Off! It made me so happy because all the contestants were SO nice to each other- not like in the American shows where they insult one another and talk so highly of themselves.

I was a little surprised at this year winner, I thought the other two girls had been doing better. It was so close that my wife and I felt any of the top three could have won.

Can I ask how you watch it? We don't have cable, just saw the one season on Netflix but I'd love to see more. If it's a cable channel maybe I'll have to convince someone to let me come over to watch :D

We have basic cable and it was shown on the PBS channel. I think PBS started airing it several weeks after it started airing in Britain.

If it is on PBS, it may be available through the PBS app on the ROKU

Cutthroat Kitchen is comical. I like the follow up show that explains how they select the tortures. All have been vetted to make sure they can still cook with them.

She watched the Australian Masterchef yet? (Only 62 episodes) all on youtube - the latest series is anyway. It features Heston Blumenthal, Maggie Bier, Rick Stein and many other brilliant chefs. I like the Aussie one because they aren't at each others throat and you learn a lot more about the cooking techniques.

No, she watches old episodes of Martha Stewart on youtube but other than the British Baking show I think she only watches domestic shows.

Anything with Gordon Ramsey I will watch!  :)

 

We watched the first couple of seasons of Hell's Kitchen but it got a little too rude for us so we stopped. Several years ago we went to Las Vega and had dinner with the season 2 winner Heather West.

Not from me!  Jehovah created us all with an eye for beauty.  To ignore or deny it is just unrealistic, imo.

 

I thought a few of the female contestants were lovely, as well.  I just don't recall their names...  ^_^

If the final 3 were all girls, I think that must have been the series from 2 years ago (I'm a fan of the show :D ) my husband was very fond of watching Ruby! The girl who won that year made fantastic cakes. She has quit her day job now and does baking things all the time.

I have to make sure I have cake in the house before I watch the show, I always end up craving it whilst watching!

You are right! I thought it was a current show but I did a search for Ruby and she was a contestant in 2013. How funny! We thought it was a 2015 show.
