    I enjoyed that show too!

    In a completely different vein, but somewhat similar, I used to love the "Two Fat Ladies" from England...I don't remember if they were on the Food Network ever...perhaps it was BBC America or PBS ... but they rode motorcycles and had great fun on their show. I remember one of them passed away about ten years ago.

    Re: Food Network Shows... Past and Present

    So many favorite shows! I will list a few:

    Ready...Set...Cook!
    Cooking Live with Sara Moulton
    Good Eats
    Semi-Homemade (please don't flame me!)
    East Meets West
    Door Knock Dinners
    Food 911
    30 Minute Meals

    Emeril is ok in very small doses. I cannot stand to watch Everyday Italian. The jump cuts they use on that show are annoying.

    You are not alone, that is one of the shows that we love to watch as a family.

    Re: Food Network Shows... Past and Present

    I love "Ace of Cakes"
    Unwrapped is fun
    Paula Deen is funny, but i feel my arteries hardening, just watching her show
    I used to like Iron Chef America ( i see Cat Kora at the gym every once in a while) but I can't stand Alton Brown
    Is this haunted signature

    stretching?

    Ace of Cakes is good, but could be SO much better.

    They don't show you enough of the technical stuff for you to learn more about baking, they NEVER show you the business/fiscal side, so you don't learn about running a small business like that.

    Don't get me wrong, the show is cool, and I love Jeff, he is the best person on that show, but it is kind of weak that they never discuss what the cakes cost, etc. etc. Also, I would rather have a cake that tastes good, then looks amazing. That fondant stuff is GROSS.

    I too enjoyed Door Knock Dinners, Two Fat Ladies and Semi Homemade but the all time favorite is Sara Moulton.

    She actually trained with Julia Child many years ago and her Cooking Live was the most enjoyable program they've ever produced. It was "live" and in real time which meant she was racing against the clock on many of the shows which were done twice a day. How she kept up with that schedule I don't know.

    A favorite episode was when she had Fergie as a guest and was doing Weight Watcher dishes, mistook cayenne for the paprika and liberatlly sprinkled parmesan crisps with it. The reaction and look on The Duchess of Pork's face was priceless but she was a good sport about the faux pas.

    Re: Food Network Shows... Past and Present

    I totally loved Two Fat Ladies. The sequences with them on their motorcycle and side car killed me! And they were so hysterical in the kitchen. One of them passed away a couple of years ago, I believe. Gosh, that show was great.

    I also loved Feasting on Asphalt with Alton this past year. Lots of fun and really showed America.

    LOVE Good Eats.....gotta love a Southern boy. Alton is SOOO funny. My daughter acually loved watching the show when she was two years old. I have a picture of her laying on the floor watching it on tv.

    Paula's is another show I love....I love the faces she makes when she eats something good. And her recipes for desserts are THE best!!! My husband wants her to adopt him. He refers to her as his grandmaw!!!

    I ate at the Border Grill once, a long time ago - I remember really liking the food, but it was a little too noisy for my liking.

    Oh, and I think Alton Brown is kinda hot in a geeky way.

    Yeah, I really am a
    Thanks, Superstacie! That is them. I think they do a radio show now on KFI which I think transmits to Bakersfield.

    And Alton Brown is kinda hot? Thank goodness you didn't say the Naked Chef!

    Giada is the best! Her recipes are good, I have all of her books.

    I liked the little owl cakes they made on one episode. Really cute.

    It's supposed to be more of an entertainment show than a documentary, so in that sense I think they show you enough of the business side, some episodes moreso than others.

    And I have often wondered how good their cakes taste...I agree with you there...it often looks like they could be laying bricks as much as baking a cake...

    Again Mary Alice is my favorite person on the show (the office manager) but Duff is fun and so is Geof...

    I see on their website that their cakes start at $500...and they are currently booked through July...

    I like most of the shows, but some of them are way over-produced. The one with Marc Summers where he is in a diner, just doesn't make sense. They made a whole fake set of a diner, but for what reason, I don't know.

    Overall, great channel, it's fun to see different foods being prepared.

    I think the best food show, was not on the Food Network, it was on Bravo, and that was Top Chef.
    Agree with EVERYTHING there. Ina Garten is annoying as hell, and Unwrapped is terrible. I cannot stand the way he pronounces his...words. Every sentence is so dramatic.
    Alton has the personality, and yes, Giada is hot. But have you ever noticed how everything in the freaking world makes her ?
    Oh, and I'm glad Emerill is losing. He is by far the most overated person on that channel. He's got the same old shtick and for some reason everyone loves him! It's like Hulk Hogan circa 1993...it's just tired, same lines, same dishes, same catchphrases.

    Re: Food Network Shows... Past and Present

    Has anyone noticed that even Rachel Ray has her own little catch phrases now? I still love her recipes, but I have have to hear her say "Yummo!" much more, I am going to stick with looking her recipes up online.
