I don't have cable. :emoji_astonished:
I need to put up the digital antenna so my wife can watch most of her TV re-runs for free and dump the cable.
If you have internet, there is so many subscription services.
If you don't have internet, be patient. Somewhere in the trilliions they want to spend it includes internet to the far reaches of the middle of nowhere.
 
I really miss the days when Cooking Shows were one Chef or maybe a guest Chef, Demonstrated preparing 2 to 3 Recipes with details of the technique and ingredients. PBS kind of stuff. You can watch a lot of those kind of shows on YouTube but its not the same.
Now...you can't tell the difference between Food Network and Game Show Network! Everything is now a Competition with Cooking being a minor portion and you don't Learn anything...JJ

I really miss them also. I learned to cook from Justin Wilson and The Frugal Gourmet among others.
 
Lately, I find myself getting annoyed with most cooking shows these days. It started with TV chefs throwing around beef tenderloin like it was the price of burger, not telling folks this stuff is like $40 a pound. Can't tell you how many customers I get wanting to try a new recipe the saw. They ask for a 3 lb tenderloin roast and I tell them before I cut it, it will be about $120.....Suddenly they are making a new plan.
Now the trend also includes meats and ingredients the average home cook/chef does not have readily available nor reasonable access to. Sure you can order it on-line but that don't help with dinner tonight and I'm not so sure I want to order meat on-line.
 
I'll watch DDD once in a while, but I still wonder how many of those cooking competition shows are fake - like most reality shows.

I agree. Like said I really miss the old style shows. This Brothers I think will be informative. They like to share.

I like Justin Wilson too. YouTube has some of the vintage cooking shows and Amazon has Great Chefs of New Orleans, which I thoroughly enjoy not so much for the actual recipes they are making but for the technique. Some of the chef's accents are so strong they use subtitles.
