It's Gutfest '89

Ha, I was just reflecting on GE: Reloaded and thought of this thread. I was a Good Eats superfan but didn't really latch onto his subsequent gigs. I like the concept with Reloaded and am looking forward to the new season, but I will say he seems to have gotten a bit fussier this time around, like with the pie episode or the pressure cooker one...just use an Instant Pot, dude. His updated brownie technique is legit, though.

I liked Salt Fat Acid Heat; Samin is very sweet yet you can tell she is serious about cooking. Contrast that with Cooked; I watched the first episode and disliked Michael Pollan intensely throughout. It largely came across as boomer.mp4 to me.

I've also been bouncing around the seasons of Parts Unknown that are available on Netflix. Mostly I just end up bummed out that Bourdain is gone. I really liked the more human-focused approach he took with the series.

Bourdain is probably the only person on the planet to bring Obama to a hole in the wall for an interview. And then proceed to just talk about their kids and eating strategies for the noodles. And yeah I legit started swelling when I saw Obama could use chopsticks.

Nailed It! Is pretty low key like that. The bakers know they’re not the best, and the judges laugh with the contestants rather than at them. It’s not harsh in any way.

Best Ever Food Review Show - surprisingly decent travel/food show with a slightly less cringy host than most other of the genre.

Highway on My Plate / Food Mad - popular Indian travel/food show where a duo explores the roadside dhabas / major cities.

That's why people watch Great British Bakeoff imo. I personally don't find it very engaging.

The Final Table, new on Netflix, is pretty chill. I mean people want to win, but they all respect the other competitors, and because they come in in teams, there's a lot of positive "I love him so much, he's just amazing, his skill at x is incredible." No fights iirc.

I think I mentioned it itt already but the other thing I liked about it is all the chefs know what they’re doing so you don’t have to watch them hand in a dish already knowing it’s trash, which is something that always bums me out with shows like Chopped and Sweet Genius.

Yeah, gonna echo the recommendation for Chef and My Fridge. The competition is pretty much just for bragging rights, there's no elimination BS, and even the trashtalking is more funny and good-natured than anything else - mainly since the usual topic of ridicule is the state of the guests' fridges.

E: The Gordon Ramsay episode of Hot Ones is finally out, and it's a hoot.

Knife Fight is incredible. People are really great to each other - there's sometimes a little teasing and good-natured heckling, but it's never mean-spirited or over the line. It's a shorter format show, with each episode being totally separate from the rest, it's not a season-based thing like Top Chef. The host is great, and the show is hosted in his restaurant after hours. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9jO0zJJAbI

Grrrrrrrrr.

Knife Fight was wonderful. Actually learnt stuff. Plus I wanted all their plates and bowls.

Another great show, where the chefs help each other, is The Great British Menu. Which I think somehow has seasons on both Netflix and Hulu. really recommend it. It's all about pride in their own work and there's nothing but respect amongst them.

Chef and My Fridge is a really fun show. Kim Poong was on another Korean show called "The Genius", and he's probably my favorite of the chefs for his unique take on convenience store food in a couple episodes.

That poo poo really stepped over the line. Plus his Basics With Babish vids are also just straight up ripping off Seriouseats/Food Wishes without any testing or innovation on his part. Also they aren't necessarily "basics". It's just annoying all around. Stick to doing the drat pop culture recipes. I feel like he's trying to build a media empire and it's aggravating.

He’s absolutely trying to build an empire, but I won’t begrudge him chasing that paper. I refuse to watch his “lifestyle” videos and very rarely watch the “basic” videos, but well-produced videos based on solid recipes that show people how easy cooking can be is fine by me.

This is one slow moving thread so I dont know if you'll see this, but I want to say sean said they get them at a neighborhood wing stop. I've never been there so I cant speak to the quality of the wings, but I'd have a hard time believing any wing would be palatable after being individually dressed during prep and whatnot.

Rachel Ray did a pro move by just eating the sauces imo. Room temp gummy wings have to be so disgusting.

It's funny that you mention they come in teams when the only reason Timothy won is because he is friends and former co-workers with Grant who stood at the "final table" campaigning for his buddy to win.
