The Best Food Network Shows Of All Time

Food Network took the concept of cooking shows and kicked it up a notch. This television station doesn’t just feature shows about how to make a great pot roast (although shows like that exist on the network if that’s what you’re into). Tune into Food Network if you want to see four chefs battle it out in the kitchen with some insane mystery ingredients, or if you want to see how food gets from the factory to your table.

This channel is insanely addictive— so sit back, relax, and take a bite-sized sample of the best shows of Food Network past, present, and future.

Ina Garten is the Barefoot Contessa. I swear this show was giving me some serious ASMR vibes before I even knew that ASMR existed. Ina’s voice is super relaxing, her home is immaculate, and her food looks absolutely delightful.

Ina’s no mess, no fuss approach to cooking makes Barefoot Contessa the perfect show to watch after a long, hard day at work. Ina specializes in French cuisine, but she often cooks food from other regions as well.
