Cooking TV shows where you can actually learn something

michaeljc70 | Sep 1, 201812:48 PM     29

It seems like on all the networks that have cooking shows, just about everything has become reality tv competition shows. I'm not going to lie and say I never watch them, but there are way too many. I prefer traditional cooking shows where they prepare a bunch of dishes and you can actually learn something. Are there any newer shows like this? It seems Food Network and cooking Channel have all reality tv or replay really old shows.

Some of the ones I have enjoyed are Barefoot Contessa, Secrets of a Restaurant Chef, Good Eats, Gordon Ramsey Cookery Course, etc. There are a bunch of others that I thought were okay too (Valerie Bertinelli, Giada, etc) Are there any others I am missing out on?
