In the modern era, reality TV shows have resonated strongly with viewers, who can’t seem to get enough of this supposedly unscripted format. Food shows have especially gained traction, and we all consider ourselves to be budding chefs, as we indulge our passion for food by watching gourmet chefs whip up appetizing and delicious dishes.
In fact, you can’t turn on a channel without some sort of new cooking show bursting out from the TV oven. But how do we separate the good eggs from the bad eggs?
Here’s a selection of the top 5 Cooking shows:
If you ever looked up the “boss from hell” on Google, Gordon Ramsey’s face would probably up. As much as Ramsey is a world-renowned chef, he is also a task master of note, as he puts his aspiring chefs through their paces, placing them under tremendous pressure and demanding perfection from them. He tries to be fair in his approach, giving great rewards to those who excel in the kitchen, but conversely imposing humiliating punishments on those deemed to have failed. Ramsey is infamous for his expletive-filled, harsh outbursts, which also makes for great television.
Come Dine with Me
This show has been one of the most popular cooking shows on UK television since its debut in 2004. Rather than focusing on professional chefs, the show zones in on 4 or 5 amateur chefs who compete against one another for a cash prize of £1,000 pounds. Adding to the fun is comedian Dave Lamb, who narrates the show with the appropriate amount of wit and sarcasm.
Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution
Jamie Oliver is undoubtedly one of the most famous chefs in the world, and his charisma is one of the main ingredients that makes this show such a success. In the programme, he highlights the advantages of cooking for ourselves rather than eating fast-food, and encourages people to change their lifestyle as part of his commitment to fighting obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
30 Minutes Meals with Rachael Ray
Looking for an easy yet delicious recipe? Bubbly Rachael Ray has proved to be a hit with viewers, offering them easy recipes that can be cooked in less than 30 minutes, yet are still healthy and tasty.
Master Chef is the most popular cooking show in the world, and it’s not hard to see why. Viewers vicariously live the experience of the aspiring chefs, as they compete to realise their dream of becoming a professional chef. With world-renowned chefs such as Gordon Ramsey and Graham Elliot serving as judges and mentors, it’s a winning combination for TV viewers.
