The Best Cooking Shows On Hulu Right Now


Food Network

Last Updated: April 23rd
Food is universal. We all need to eat and — with shopping getting easier and dining out growing more cost prohibitive — most of us need to cook. Ever since Julia Child’s syndicated cooking show premiered on PBS, American attitudes towards our stoves have been steadily evolving. With the Food Network boom in the late 90s, everyone was suddenly trying to make more complex food at home. These days, even casual home cooks know how to ready an emulsion and can whip up a roux in their sleep. That makes food TV the perfect “comfort watch” — easy on the eyes and instructive at the same time.

In 2018, it’s not just about simple “how to” programming. We have documentaries about the very nature of food, looks at the science behind how we cook, explorations of food as part of our living history, and scores of game shows and competitions. You can find both cutting edge shows and historical curiosities, streaming on Hulu, which has an ever-growing library of food shows from around the world. Here are ten of our favorite food shows streaming on Hulu right now.

10) Good Eats

Food Network

Before he was Food Network’s go-to host, Alton Brown revolutionized the cooking show by dragging a little sketch comedy and a lot of science into the mix. By debunking food legends, and more than once cobbling together Rube Goldberg-esque rigs from hardware store components, Brown’s show remains compelling and fun, even if he can’t quite stop his tendency to overengineer everything.

9) Bizarre Foods With Andrew Zimmern

Travel Channel

Another pioneer, well before Anthony Bourdain was acting like nobody went places and ate things, Zimmern was going to places and eating whatever they handed him. The title of the show may have been a little judgy, but Zimmern himself was an open-minded, thoughtful food advocate who encouraged Americans to eat something a little, or extremely, different.

8) Guy’s Grocery Games

Yes, Food Network staple Diners, Drive-Ins, And Dives is also on Hulu, but for our money, this oddball game show, a mix of Supermarket Sweep and cooking competition, is weirdly even more soothing and fun. (Even if we’re completely convinced that pyramid is rigged. How do they get the worst ingredient every time?)

7) Cutthroat Kitchen

Food Network

Alton Brown hosts what amounts to Chopped With Whammy Rounds, as four chefs compete to win $25,000. But the twist is, they can spend their prize money to handicap their opponents, taking away ingredients, adding unnecessary steps, or just annoying them. Basically if there’s ever been a moment where you’ve wished an obnoxious cooking show contestant bad karma, this show is for you.

6) After Hours With Daniel Boulud

Automatic Productions

Chef Daniel Boulud interviews his fellow chefs in what’s often an eye-opening look at both cooking and the sometimes messy business of getting food on plates at major restaurants. Especially for those curious about how the restaurant industry operates, it’s fascinating, and Boulud gets his guests to open up more than you might think.

5) Uncorked

Mojo

Can self-proclaimed “beer guy” Billy Merritt really become a sommelier, or at least learn the nuances of wine? He travels the world to find out, in a show that does quite a bit to break down the snobbery and code of wine-drinking.

4) Pressure Cook

Mojo

A bit of a riff on reality shows like Survivor, chef Ralph Pagano is unceremoniously dumped in a new country each episode with no money, no map, and one mission: Make enough money cooking for the locals to get the heck back home. Pagano is often hilarious, but the show has some good points about both keeping an open mind and the social role of a chef across the world.

3) The Supersizers Go…

BBC

Over two seasons, food writer Giles Coren and comedian Sue Perkins (The Great British Baking Show) tackle various eras of British history via the fashion, the hobbies, and most importantly the often utterly disgusting things the British people voluntarily put in their mouths over various historical era.

Perkins, in particular, is hilarious since she’s usually stuck with the terrible jobs of history, and the show is filled with fascinating tidbits about various foods and diets, not to mention historical eras. Among other things, prepare to be completely disgusted by the French, for reasons that have nothing to do with eating snails.

2) Barefoot Contessa: Back To Basics

Food Network

Is there a truer moment on TV than when Carol (Matt Damon) weeps openly on 30 Rock that he could never have the strength of Jeffrey Garten? Joking aside, Ina Garten is one of the better TV chefs in part because she doesn’t demand you hit ninety specialty stores or have a lot of unitaskers in the kitchen to pull off her recipes. Her show is carefully geared to the home chef that watching an episode inspires both lifestyle envy and makes the food feel attainable at the same time.

1) Top Chef

NBC Universal

If you’re not following Vince Mancini’s recaps of America’s premiere show about cooking and backstabbing, now’s a good time to get caught up on all fourteen seasons. Oh, and they’ve also got a long run of Top Chef: Masters on Hulu to boot. Do it to experience the joy, yet again, of rooting against Ed and Marcel.
