    "I have always been a fan of cooking TV shows. I really wanted to find out which was the best one so I started binge watching them all. Out of all of the shows I have to say that Iron Chef America has to be the best!"

    "MasterChef Junior isn't a "serious" cooking show. That is to say, you won't learn a lot about cooking watching it - you'll pick up a few fast-facts here or there, sure, but it's honestly not worth following for that. So it's really only worth watching if you like reality TV, and MasterChef Junior is edited like most reality TV. That is to say, it's fiction. So I didn't really think it's worth watching."

    "Hell's Kitchen is awesome. Gordon Ramsay is family friendly in this TV series, usually he's a little more vulgar. I enjoy watching the competition and how well these aspiring chefs can make complex dishes. Often, he has guest celebrities in the dining room!"

    "I watch this show whenever I find it available to stream. I enjoy the master classes that are offered in this version. I also enjoy how much team work appears to be going on compared to the American version. The people are friendlier and the dishes that are made are so inspiring. This is a show I binge and indulge with on the weekends. "

    "If I said barefoot Contessa is THE BEST cooking TV show, many high-class foodies would spin their Bobby Flays. I love this show though. You don't need everything so fancy and have expensive, hard-to-find ingredients. Ms. Garten uses the tired and true methods, recipes and cooking ways. It's perfect for us normal folk!"
