Mixing reality shows and food seems like the perfect combination for just about anyone. I always get amazed what some people are able to make under a huge amount of pressure. The cooking shows are so entertaining as well, because it’s always regular people competing. Just make sure not to watch them on an empty stomach!
Gordon Ramsay has a difficult task here, when he is given 18 people to train so they can become professional chefs. In each round, they are split in two different teams, trying to stay in the game, while dealing with tough challenges they need to face. Even though it is teamwork for the challenges, at the end of the day, it’s every man for himself.
Another Gordon Ramsay tv show, but this time it is him travelling around the USA, trying to help restaurants whose business is not doing very well. You might think this is an easy task, but you’d be surprised how stubborn people could be. Also, the conditions in which these restaurants work sometimes make me wonder, how are they even open still.
This show is just a classic and that’s the reason I had to put it in this list. MasterChef is the first cooking show I’ve watched and the reason I even watched the rest! Even though it is yet another show with Gordon Ramsay, he’s only one of the three judges here. Watching amateur cooks as they progress and develop more and more is really satisfying to me. It makes us believe everyone could become a great chef, only if they wanted to.
To give you a little break from chef Ramsay, I’ve decided to add this show to the list as well. In every episode there is 3 contestants and they try to recreate the given task to the best of their abilities. It is really amusing watching home bakers trying their best and some of them not coming even close to what they should’ve made.
