The Frugal Gourmet. Don't know if this should be in the childhood thread or not. I use to enjoy this show. It was either on before or after This Old House. I better start watching more of these so I'm ready when Priscilla shows up. Hopefully a full course meal will keep the wife from killing me. Matt

Your probably too young to remember this show. The Galloping Gourmet.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graham_Kerr

High School girlfriend lived one block from school. We'd go there for lunch. Her mother watched that show every day. Pretty funny guy.

Now, I like to watch Cook's Country Kitchen on PBS. They don't just throw a bunch of stuff in a pot, like many of the cooking shows. I like how they explain the science of what's happening as ingredients cook together. Plus I like that they do ingredient comparison tests and the kitchen equipment tests.

I remember watching the Galloping Gourmet when I was a kid, heck, I remember watching Julia Child's show!

Anyone remember Pierre Franey's show?
