    Cooking show recommendations

    what cooking shows are recommended ?

    the travel and cooking ones are interesting , but what about some straightforward basic cooking shows without too many fancy ingredients or kitchenware.

    Gordon Ramsay's home cooking is ok, you can find it available to download from thepiratebay.

    Jamie Oliver's latest series is ok too

    I do like Top Chef - but mostly because Padma Lakshmi is really easy on the eye.

    Master Chef UK and Australia (incl the 'Junior' version) both are good because it proves that judges do not need to be wankers as they are in Master Chef US.

    Can't stand her accent - but otherwise I do enjoy Annabel Langhein's 'Free Range Cook' - good, rustic cooking.

    The early Masterchef Aust seasons were good, maybe the first 3, then it slowly stopped being about the cooking and too much of the show was devoted to the 3 bozos and whoever the celebrity guest was. They even had the Dalai Llama on, wtf he has to do with cooking I don't know.
    They also, I believe upped the quality of the contestants to levels beyond the average amateur chef.

    Almost forgot - because sadly, he's no longer with us:

    Keith Floyd - what a character (and a pretty good cook) he was.

    ^ Agree, that guy is really amazing although most of his stuff is probably not really suitable for amateur cooking skills.

    the guy was a legend. always a few sheets to the wind, getting himself into all sorts a scrapes and a talented cook rather than chef. well worth checking out, especially his s e asian adventures.

    Nigel Slater's 'Simple Suppers' comes to mind.

    The guy is a bit creepy but his ideas and recipes are quite good and simple to follow.

    He spent six months in a restaurant in Patong a few years back - when he got back to England he collapsed.

    Class bloke, splashed some win in the cooking and drink the rest of the bottle while he was stirring it.

    Alton Brown- Good Eats. Great show to learn from. He often describes in great detail how the dish originated.

    There are endless numbers of cooking shows and videos on youtube. You probaby couldn't watch them all. Many good Thai cooking videos as well.

    I really enjoy watching Anthony Bourdain. Mixture of travel and food.

    Mario Batali comes to mind.....if you can still can find his programs on TV [any where]. Has the passion and skill - mixed with the simple layman territory.

    Aside.....do any of you folks remember the old BBC produced "cooking" program, Two Fat Ladies? Approx. mid to late '90s. Classic.
