TV Cooking, Food, & Restaurant shows Here are some of the better cooking/food shows on broadcast TV. Expect schedule changes, so check the TV guides. Do a search for keywords like "cooking", "food", and "restaurants" from ClickTV above for a complete list of these shows. Several shows are also on at other times and days, and a search will find them. All shows are a one-half hour unless noted. The ++ marks my favorites.

FLASH - 10/8/00 - Several new cooking shows on PBS for the new fall season. Do a search for 'cooking" at ClickTV or whatever for the complete list. Several new hosts, and Burt Wolf returns.

Flash 4/7/99 - A new cooking series starts this Saturday on KCET channel 28 from 11 to 11:30 a.m., and it is called "Weir Cooking in the Wine Country." See today's Daily Breeze newspaper for the story on how they made the series.

Flash 3/13/99 - Watch out for these. "Tommy Tang's Modern Thai Cuisine" is on some weekdays on Ch 50 at 2:30 p.m. Some days, "At Home on the Range" could start at 11:20 p.m. Nick Stellino is on Tuesday 3/16/99 at 10 p.m. on Ch 50. Could be a fund drive.

Flash 3/10/99 - In todays L.A. Times food section, KCET channel 28 had an ad for their Sunday programs. On 3/14/99 they will have Nick Stellino's Dinner Party at 4:30 p.m. and Huell Howser's Moveable Feast at 6 p.m. This may be a fund drive but sounds like it will be worth watching or taping.

Flash: To find an index of all the cooking shows on PBS since April 1997, go to There may be other ways, but I clicked WHAT'S ON TV? (not SEARCH!), skip KEYWORDS, select Subject: HOW-TO/COOKING, pick a month, and search. It's a playland for PBS cooking fans.
