Not the George Foreman grill ads. But, What have you tried/learned and liked and would like to pass along, from all of the hours of cooking shows you have watched?

I've learned a lot from Good Eats. Not so much the recipes, but the science and history.

Iron Chef really expanded my palette for exotic foods. Good Eats really taught me a lot ABOUT food, along with some pointers for sprucing up my own recipes, but I don't watch most of the "cooking shows" where the goal is to actually learn to cook something. I don't do that much cooking.

I agree on the Good Eats. I use his waffle recipe all the time.

I also learn alot from Unwrapped...nothing about how to cook, but about the origins of stuff and how its made. Good show.

Good Eats.
His earthenware planter cookware is cool.
His smokers rock.
Love the science, I have always been a tech head, no matter what the subject matter, I want to know what is behind it.

I now take the pasta out of the box before I put it in water.





I also boil the water now, too.

you should check out the rotisserie he made for making gyros meat.

I love good eats because he explains the science, and why you should do things the way the recipe is written, as well as frequently providing options for alternative hardware that will work in a pinch, or if you are on a seriously restrictive budget.

I gotta make me that salmon smoker, and the clay BBQ pit. I did pick up a hot plate and a cast iron skillet already.

Alton Brown is a nerd's nerd. Love Good Eats, even if most of the humor is kind of stilted -- but it just adds to the charm.

- Never order the sqeasel, iguana, or rotten shark.

- Drinking and smoking takes away much of the pain.

Both AB's. Bummer no new No Reservations eps until next year.

I used to be a FoodTV junkie. The only thing I still find palatable, so to speak, is Good Eats. I'll also check out Mr. B's upcoming show.

I'd watch Jamie Oliver if he was still on. Now, it's Iron Chef overload, makeover/reality-type shows, and terminal cuteness. Plus, the ever-present Emeril, whose acts gets old after about five minutes.

The Road show Alton is doing is a 4? episode summer short. There is quite a surprise in episode 3 or 4.
