    I know there's a rather large thread devoted to Rachel Ray and her tipping habits, but I was wondering what are people's favorite shows and hosts on the Food Network? and, why?

    I like Alton Brown and Good Eats.

    I also enjoy Emeril Live

    And, Giada is pretty good. When I first started watching her, she was kind of annoying, but she grew on me. All her low-cut tops and cleavage shots don't hurt either. lol

    Alton rocks!
    Paula Dean is a lot of fun.
    Still enjoy Rachael Ray, even though she is annoying.

    I also enjoy Food Finds, Best Of and Unwrapped. Can you tell I watch A LOT of Food Network?

    Giada De Laurentiis could cook for me anytime, even without a stove.

    Good Eats is about all that I still watch on Food Network. I occasionally will watch Iron Chef, or Molto Mario...

    I like Alton Brown the most, by far...

    I also enjoy Mario Batali, Bobby Flay, Jamie Oliver. Not so hot on Emeril anymore... although I love his recipes.

    I like Rachel Ray a lot. (and she is hot!)
    But being a true foodie in the Italian style, I find Molto Mario to be more of an in depth show.

    I like Alton Brown quite a bit.

    Am I the only one who can't tolerate Emeril for more than a few minutes?

    Paula Deen is probably my favorite, but I also like the new "gourmet on a budget" guy...Dave Lieberman, I think.

    Other than "Good Eats" my favorite cooking show isn't even on the Food Network. It's "Cooking in Brooklyn" on Discovery Home.

    No, you're not.

    And I agree with you about Alton.

    The only two things we watch on Food Network (or really any food shows, period) are Good Eats and Iron Chef America. There's something in common between those two shows. Take a guess at who my favorite host is. :)

    I don't watch for the host, per se. However, I do like Alton Brown and Rachel Ray (hmmmmmm).

    I'm interested in the new show "Sugar Rush". I caught some of it last Sunday. I also really like "Sweet Dreams" with Gail Gand.

    thanks, ... I'll have to check that one out.

    For non-Food Network shows: Although it depends on the episode, I usually like America's Test Kitchen on PBS. I also have watched and liked some of Napa Style on the Fine Living Channel.

    Anyone know of any good Asian cooking shows? I just don't care for Martin Yan's show.

    Alton Brown, Good Eats
    Rachel Ray
    Tyler Florence, Food 911. I can take Tyler only in small doses. He has the habit of doing stuff like running his hand through his hair and then goes back to touching the food. That really really bugs me.

    I guess current would be Good Eats and Alton Brown.

    I also liked a Cook's Tour with Anthony Bourdain but that's now No Reservations on the Travel channel.

    Iron Chef is still good too. haven't seen Jamie Oliver in forever. is he still alive? :)

    Like Alton, although I can do without the overwrought quasi-scientific techniques. And the poorly acted filler vignettes. I think it was better a year (or two?) ago.

    Emeril sucks.

    Haven't seen this Giada person. Rachel is irritating but awfully yummy. If I could just tie those hands down to stop their flailing.... hmm.... there's an idea....
