Best Thing I Ever Ate

Ever wondered what celebrity chefs love to eat, aside from their own creations? This show has the lowdown on what some of the world’s most renowned chefs—we’re talking Emeril Lagasse, Wolfgang Puck, Cat Cora, and more—love to eat and the great lengths they go through just to get their guilty pleasures.

Barefoot Contessa

It’s no secret that Ina Garten is a Town&Country favorite. She makes incomparable cheese plates. She creates amazing dishes, perfect for entertaining, and presents them in simple, elegant ways that even a novice can recreate. There’s also no dilly-dallying, she goes straight to the point.

Chopped

Reality TV doesn’t get any more competitive than in Chopped. In each episode, four chefs battle it out in the kitchen and it’s not the $10,000 prize they’re after. They genuinely want to show off their skills by going all out with the mystery ingredients.

The Great British Bake Off

The Great British Bake Off presents a welcome and pleasant break from screaming judges and unnecessary kitchen drama. It somehow is reminiscent of kindergarten, where everyone is friends and each student gets commended for every accomplishment. Characters on the show are genuinely excited to be there and not a single insult is uttered. It’s absolutely refreshing.

Chef’s Table

Chef’s Table is everything you would not expect from a food documentary. It's so beautifully shot that it becomes about more than just the food. Each episode profiles a talented chef, with stories captured in stunning cinematography and a clear and very candid narration. It returned for a third season earlier this year, featuring chefs Nancy Silverton, Ivan Orkin, Virgilio Martinez and more.

Cooked

The miniseries is more than a cooking show. It dives into the very annals of cooking and takes viewers on an enlightening and almost transcendental journey into the meaning of food. The episodes tackle earthly elements as a theme and reach back into the history and tradition that relates that very element to food.

I’ll Have What Phil’s Having

Host of the show, Phil Rosenthal, is living the dream of those who would love to travel the world in search of extraordinary dishes. He doesn't hold back on culinary adventures and is up to try even the most bizarre foods. Hosted by this animated and witty gourmand, the show's food draws viewers in as much as the travels.
