What're the best cooking shows? I'm looking for one where taste/texture/nutrient combinations are explained and such, something to tickle my aspergers caresses my intellect whilst finding interesting tips for established meals or new meal ideas.

A second thing, there's a clip I saw of a male celebrity chef cooking in Indonesia or somewhere tropical on an outdoor grill thing against a backdrop of the sea/mountains, I can't for the life of me remember what it was or what he was cooking if it rings any bells.
Expand all images.

Did you not read the weekend thread? At least 1/3 of the posters on .gs haven't had any in months, you can't expect an answer with such a distracting image.

Is the guy you're talking about Rick Stein by any chance?

I don't know about cooking shows that go into that kind of detail, but I really enjoyed No Reservations and anything hosted by Keith Floyd.

Heston Blumenthal's "In Search of Perfection" is worth a look. He reverse-engineers every aspect of a popular recipe, trying to work out the best possible way of doing everything. The recipes he develops aren't remotely practical for a domestic cook, but the programme gives a tremendous insight into his thinking process.

He cooks relatively simple recipes, but with obsessive attention to detail.

A lot of what he does is accessible to the home cook, but you need to put thought into it yourself to work out where you need to compromise.

For example, the best way you can cook steak at home is with a high heat, and turning it every 30 seconds or so. The traditional way that most chefs is to just turn it once, and the only reason that top chefs do that is because it's what people have always done.
There are a lot of little things like that you can pick up from him which really work.

I'll check out Heston's stuff. I've never really watching cooking shows before except Kitchen Nightmares which is just good fun and not really about cooking.

I do appreciate that blog though, thanks m80.
