Between the answers on this thread, and the other recently posted thread concerning "au jus" recipes, I'm very much beginning to doubt the credibility of a number of the posters here.
Best cooking show currently on tv for professional cooks? - Page 2
They are t.v shows, most of them , if not all , intended for entertainment purposes and ratings, I think we can all assume that to be true. If we imbibe anything from them, all the better.
Don't fuss over the "au jus" thread, everyone is allowed to give an opinion or viewpoint.

Life is short, don't lose sleep over it.

HA! I want to work in a kitchen with as much space as them.

We lost the remote to the TV about 8 years ago when we threw out the couch. So I guess you could say I haven't watched many--if any--cooking shows. I do catch the odd one every now and then. Not impressed.
Saw a good one, "Ace of cakes" or something like that, saw a few good techniques and ideas, talented people.
But-tum-ahhh, well...the show didn't mention how many man-hours went into the cake, and what it sold for. I think this is why I get the "hairy eyeball" when a customer gives me a 20 yr old photo of M & D's wedding and want's me to execute it in coloured chocoalte on a 3 tier cake and expects the whole thing to cost $99.00.
I wonder if any of the shows, "reality" or not, ever explain what salaries are like, or the fact that ther are no qualifications to base salaries on in the kitchen.
Maybe I could get a double "d" size bra and get my back waxed and go on air and explain it.........
I watch "unique eats" on the cooking channel pretty religiously. Its a lot like "the best thing I ever ate" that used to be on the food network but better. Gives you a look at signature dishes from great restaurants all across the country. No real instruction and definitely no drama, its all about the dishes. I learn something or recieve some form of inspiration from every episode.
