Which FoodNetwork Hosts/Shows Do You Miss?

There have been countless threads already about how the network is just plain terrible, but I wanted to look back at the glory days and remember the shows that I used to actually enjoy-

-The Best Of
As a kid I thought it used to be a tad boring but now that I've grown up I realized how good it actually was... It's like a high-class normal version of Diners Drive ins and dives

-Sweet Dreams
Oh Gale Gand, come back to me. How I dearly loved your show. One day I will sneak into the FoodNetwork headquarters vault and steal all of your tapes. Alas, now you've been replaced by Anne Thornton

-Sara Moulton
Years ago i thought she was a bit uninteresting as well, but you know what? I learned a heck of a lot from her when I was a kid! Her French Apple Tart holds a special place in my heart

-From Martha's Kitchen
Pretentious? Utterly so. It was like watching the life you could only dream of having. However, she was still utterly informative and her guests were always entertaining

-Everyday Italian
I'm talking about her first few seasons where she was a bit on the shy side and taught honest to goodness humble Italian food. It's sad that I miss a show that is still relatively recent.

-How to Boil Water
Before that douche Tyler Florence and that idiotic blonde girl took over. The french chef and the hostess were extremely entertaining and hey- this show taught beginners how to cook in a non-condescending and non-prepackaged way... I'm shaking my finger at you

-Jacque Torres
Simply because he was the only one who catered towards professional amateurs who knew there way around the kitchen

Special Mentions:

-Calorie Commando
Simply because every single one of his recipe makeovers looked like a trainwreck- it was entertaining to see how bad his recipes turned out

-The old Paula Deen
As in the paula before she moved into her new house and now has to have her sons on every episode...

And if you need refreshing: a list of past and present FN programs
