    The only ones I watch these days are Pioneer Woman and Trisha Yearwood's show (can't recall the name). I'm sure I'll burn out on both of them eventually and stop watching. *shrug*

    I miss Emeril!

    I learned how to cook from "How to boil water' and 'Good eats' ... these were good shows - especially for the beginners - and I still keep some Good Eats episodes on the DVR and consult them occasionally. I no longer find decent cooking shows on FN (where I can learn stuff) but I still find some reality shows fascinating - Chopped, Next Food Network Star, Challenge, Next Iron Chef, etc. As much as I hate reality TV, when it comes to FN, I seem to enjoy it. But I do miss the time of being able to really learn how to cook.

    I always liked "Taste"(David Rosengarten), "Chef du Jour", and Sara Moulton

    I think Tyler Florence used to have a show called "Food 911" where he would go to people's houses and teach them to cook 3 or 4 dishes

    but that was many, many years ago

    that was probably my favorite "learn to cook" series

    If you liked "How to Boil Water" try America's Test Kitchen they break down some complicated things to very core and make it very accessible.

    I grew up on Justin Wilson, The Frugal Gourmet and of course Julia Child.

    You forgot the part where he was all over those women while he was teaching them to cook for their families.

    I like his recipes, but if he ever acted that way in my home, I would deck him.

    I like the Sandwich King show. I enjoy the humor aspect of it, even if I would rarely cook most of his dishes. He is very likeable, IMO.
