Which cooking shows do you like and why?

In our June story “Channeling a Healthy Diet,” we learned that cooking shows are among the hottest properties on television—but not every popular chef is a proponent of healthy eating.

Now it’s your turn. What are your favorite cooking shows and why? Do you think the recipes they present are healthy? We want to know!


  1. Hello, I watch Barefoot Contessa - Ina Garten, because she is real, she makes real food that I would actually want to eat, some TV chef's make items with too many ingredients or to much prep involved, or they just plain don't sound good, I review recipes by reviewing the ingredients and comparing the combined tastes in my head, to determine if they sound good or not, I also love the relationship she has with her husband Jeffery, they are the cutest couple.

  2. Hi, I loooooove Ellie Krieger's show (Healthy Appetite), because her food is healthy, delicious and easy to make. We need more shows like hers, more chefs cooking healthy meals and helping America to get healthier while eating delicious foods!

  3. I love anything with Gordon Ramsey, but for recipe ideas, I like shows on my basic cable channel, "Create." It sometimes makes it easier to replicate a recipe when you can see it being prepared instead of just reading the instructions.
