    Another cooking show.. Guy's Ranch Kitchen

    In the same vein as The Chef Show I posted about here, I'd encourage you all to check out Guy Fieri's "Guy's Ranch Kitchen". While Fieri has a ton of stuff on Food Network that appeals to a lot of different sensibilities, GRK is a wellspring of ideas.

    The format is Guy coming up with a theme, e.g. small plates or picnic food or whatever and then several very good chefs coming up with dishes loosely riffing on that format. The chefs are mostly very very good (Traci des Jardin, Jonathan Waxman, Antonia Lofaso etc) and because there are several different chefs, you get to see varying interpretations of the theme.

    The nice thing is that the recipes are all on the Food Network site, so if you want to try a dish, you can.

    When I was a kid in small town Northern California I remember Guy with his hot dog stand.

      So he's done 5 seasons already? That's a lot of binge-watching to do!

        It is! The way I watch it is to find a theme I'm interested in. Most of them are interesting but some are closer to what I might want to do. And the themes vary - a few are things like holiday meals but the new episode was 'layered food' which saw people make layered pasta dishes, wagyu kimchi scallion pancakes and a layered drink called The Dubliner.

        Some chefs also do things that I want to learn about too (Voltaggio and his simulacrums of 'dirt' for vegetable dishes, Lofaso for most everything).

        The thing to remember is that they're not doing a menu, they're all riffing on a theme so some dishes in a show might wow you, others might be eh. Almost all, though, are things you could do at home - they don't rely on really exotic ingredients or have 53 steps that need 5 days to complete.
