Video Links to Our 10 Best Food-Themed TV Shows


#1: Julia Child

Last Friday, we ran a ranking of Our 10 Best Food-Themed Television Shows, and it included, in addition to old chestnuts like Julia Child and the Galloping Gourmet, some more obscure food-show hosts, folks like Justin Wilson, who introduced every recipe with a Cajun traveling salesman joke. Now we present YouTube clips from eight of those 10 shows. We’ve not included Top Chef, because we couldn’t decide which clip to include, and Lidia Bastianich, because her best work is embargoed from the web.

#3: Jacques Pepin

#4: Posh Nosh

Forge ahead for more clips…

#5: Graham Kerr (clips from Tthe Galloping Gourmet interspersed with clips from Fanny Cradock

#6: Justin Wilson
