I’ve been dealing with some back/nerve pain lately – pregnancy, you are full of wonderful surprises – but the upside of that has been all the TV I’ve been able to watch. Mike and I have an ongoing list of television series that we need to start (to give you an idea of how far behind we are: we still haven’t finished Breaking Bad…) and I also have one of my very own, 50% of it involves terrible reality television and the rest is all food-related. I wanted to share a few of my recent food tube obsessions and I invite you to share yours!
The Great British Bake-Off. I know, I know, this is old news but I finally got around to watching episode 2 weeks ago and now I’m 3 seasons in. If you enjoy reality cooking shows and close up shots of baked goods (WHO DOESN’T?!) then this show is a MUST. I think I’ve gained 10 pounds since I started binge watching this show but it is so worth it.
Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook. I’ve followed Rachel’s work and own one of her cookbooks but her television programs are new to me. She brings the same charm and enthusiasm in person as she does in books. What can I say, I love a girl who loves to eat.
Mind of a Chef. This is a Netflix discovery and Mike is as into it as I am. Producer Anthony Bourdain teamed up with some of his chef friends to create this quirky but highly addictive show. I feel like I learn so much in every episode. Warning: Season 1 will make you crave Japanese so badly that you may lose sleep.
