With the popularity of cooking shows today, you can find them on any channel at anytime. Finding a top 5 was no easy task.
One of the first cooking competion shows to hit the airways. After 9 seasons it is still able to captivate it's audience with a variety of celebrity judges, locations and a array of different and unusual challenges. Judges Tom Colicchio and varing well known chefs and celebrity foodies compare the dishes in order to find the best. Contestants create dishes with a array of ingredients and asked to prepare it under difficult and unusual circumstances in the hopes of not being asked by Padma Lakshmi to " back their knives and go" to ultimately win cash and prizes.
A team effort competition with competitors from all different fields of the culinary world, hoping to get to individual competition, to compete for a executive head chef position at a successful star rated restaurant. Gordon Ramsey's colorful and at times demeaning treatment of the contestants keeps viewers tuning in.
Gordon Ramsey captivates the audience again with not the experienced restaurant cook or chef, but with the home cook .100 Contestants prepare a dish of their choosing in hopes of securing one of the 16 aprons for regular competition in which the finally goal is 100,000.00 and assorted prizes. Ramsey as well as Graham Elliot and Joe Bastianich taste and critique contestants dishes in order to select the 3 worse dishes, of which ultimately one contestant will be asked to leave their apron.
A clever twist on your typical competition show. Four contestants compete in a appetizer, entrée and dessert round with one chef or cook being "chopped" after each round. The twist comes in with the "mystery basket" of each round containing 4 or more ingredients that must be used someway in their creation. 3 Food Network stars serve as judges who compare not only the dishes but the skill and composure of each contestant, who ultimately decides who will receive the 10,000.00 prize.
A food show with a talk show twist is a great addition to day time television. Hosts Micheal Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly, Daphne Oz and Mario Batali keep viewers entertained with not only demonstrating recipes they offer money saving tips and involve the home viewer as well as the live audience. Health, home, fashion and shopping segments tossed in to inform the viewers with a splash of humor, keep us tuning in 5 days a week.
