So hold your excitement, and let’s know the top 10 cooking shows to stream right now. To add the cherry on the top you can recreate any of their dishes you love.
The top position of the list is grabbed by the popular reality show titled Top Chef. The reason for being at the top is because of the rating that is received from all the audience around the world. The rating is jugged on the basis of 10 points, and the show received a rating which is somewhere on the line of 7, to be more specific, the rating is 7.6. The show has its first episode aired in the year 2016, which makes the show last for more than half a decade. Altogether the show consists of a total of 16 seasons, with a total of 266 episodes.
The main purpose of the show is to select one of the best chefs in the United States Of America. Talking about the episodes of the show, in every episode, we can see that going to be top chefs will be competing with each other, which is a type of face-off of the different kitchen and culinary challenges. Gradually with time, in each of the episode, one or the other constants who fails the challenge or gets not so nice review is further removed or eliminated from the show, and the other contestants who are left will proceed further having more challenges between them.
With this, the top contestants of the show will compete with each other in the final episode of the show. In the end, America will have its top chef with some awesome prizes for the winner. Being such a great show, the producer and director of Top Chef made several spin-offs shows, namely Top Chefs Masters and Top Chef Junior.
The Final Table
The second is the popular show which is also a popular origin of the renowned streaming platform named Netflix. The name of the show is The Final Table. The Netflix original show does not limit its participants to particular places but takes contestants from around the world. Like any other show, in this show as well the rating is jugged on the basis of 10points.
Being loved by so many people around the globe, the show received a rating which is somewhere around seven, and to be more specific, it is 7.7. Unlike any other show, The Final Table aired for only one season. The show has its first episode aired on the 11th of August in 2018. Other than that, the show is presented by a notable person who is also an award-winning writer and editor named Andrew Knowlton.
Moreover, since the show has only one season, it contains 10episodes in total. In the episodes, we can see there are a total of 24 contestants who are paired in a group of two, which further makes them a total of 12 pairs playing together and competing with each other to make their way to the Final Table.
Other than that in the show, we can see that each episode is based on making different types of dishes from different countries around the world. The cherry on the top is that in each of the episodes, a famous and notable food critic is invited to taste the dishes of the contestants. Gradually as the show proceeds, the challenges become tougher, with each of the contestants who gets not-so-good reviews or earns fewer points than the other contestants getting removed or eliminated from the show. Shortly some of the top contestants are left who compete with each other in the finals.
In the third, we put another popular cooking show which received a rating which is around 7, and to be more specific it is 7.5. Not only that but the show is hosted by a notable person in the food industry named Ted Allen. So, the title of the show is Chopped. The show has a total of 621 episodes which is covered within a total of 46seasons. Talking about the episodes of the show, in each of the episodes we can see that there are a total of four chefs who compete with each other in a game held over a total of three rounds.
In each of the episodes, the four chefs go through the three rounds that comprise of making a plated appetizer, a dish which will be the entrée, and to top it all at last a dessert. The dishes that they make are further judged by a panel of judges which consists of a total of three judges. As the show proceeds and the finals come, the winner is announced at the end. Not only that but the winner is also given prize money of $10,000. To top it all up there is not one but many twists and turns in the show which makes the show more interesting for the viewers.
Guy’s Grocery Games
In the fourth number, there is another popular show which has a decent rating of 6 and to be more specific 6.6. Though it is said to be a somewhat similar version of the third show that is Chopped. But I believe the show does not have so many twists and turns but is rather a chilled-out show. The show has a total of 256 episodes covered in a total of 24 seasons. The show is hosted by one of the most successful chefs named Guy Feri.
The show goes according to the name that is the whole show is recorded in a real grocery store which is named Falvortown Market. Unlike any other show here the participants are not regular people but some of the top-notch and popular chefs of the United States. The popular chefs compete against each other to make some of the popular top-notch dishes. But the twist here is that the chefs have to use the things that a common person can get in any local grocery store.
American Barbecue Showdown
The show that we have thought to place in the fifth position has an overall rating of 7.2 out of 10. The title of the show is American Barbecue Showdown. Not only that but the show is actually an original series aired on the popular streaming website named Netflix. With this, the show has a total of 8 episodes that is covered in one season. Unlike any other show, this does not takes place in a four-walled studio or the grocery store.
Rather than the show is organized in a huge outhouse. Other than that as the name says in this show contestants make dishes where the main component of the dish will be grilled either it can be charred meats or vegetables or anything that they like. Though the show is said to be somewhere similar to another popular show based on baking named The Great British Baking Show. But I would say that the show is not as intense as any other show.
Iron Chef America
Followed by the previous show there is another popular show which has an overall rating of 7.1 out of 10. The name of the show is Iron Chef America. I believe though the show is somewhat similar to the Guys Grocery Games. But in this show, the contestants that participate are not so many popular chefs rather the contestants are the ones who have less popularity. Other than that the show is said to a successful adaptation of a popular Japanese series which was of the same name but in this show, more focus is given to the less popular chefs of America. Apart from that, the show is hosted by one of the most popular chefs named Alton Brown.
The seventh position of the list is acquired by the show which has a rating of 7.4 out of 10. The name of the show is Nailed it. The show has a total of 46 episodes which is covered within 5 seasons. Not only that but the show is also said to be something that one will love no matter how much dislike one have for it in the first episodes. Talking about the episodes, in each of the episodes we can see that the contestants are the ones who are by profession or by interests baker at the amateur level. In the show, the contestants are given the challenge to re-do cakes or pastries that are not so easy but rather complicated. But since it is not so easy to create such marvelous cakes, and most of the time, they mess up the recipe which further makes the cake-making process a huge disaster. But out of all the disasters, the best cakes are selected. Apart from that, the winner of each of the episodes is given a huge cash prize which is a total of $10,000.
Followed by the previous show the next show is another popular cooking show that won the heart of many people named Hell’s Kitchen. The show has a total rating of 7.1 out of 10. Apart from that, the show is aired in a total of 312 episodes which is covered in a total of 20 seasons. The show, as well as the host, is true to its name is the show has hosted by the chef who is known for his rage named chef Gordon Ramsey.
Talking about the episodes of the show, in the episodes, we can see the feature chefs are divided into a total of two teams who are competing with each other to acquire the final prize in the competition. The show is made in a way where it is not only just a cooking show but rather gives a feeling and pressure of actually being a chef in a renowned and successful restaurant. Not only that but the price is the same as the feel of the show. The person who will in each of the seasons gets the chance to be ahead chef in a restaurant.
The Great British baking show
In the ninth position, there is another popular show which won the heart of many people around the world. Other than that the show also acquired a rating of 8.6. I believe the show is not as much intense as the other shows on the list, rather it is on the side more relaxed than one would like to watch on a relaxed day. Not only that but the show does not have any prize money in particular which further adds to the relaxing factor of the show. So you must be thinking if the show does not have any prize money then what’s the show is about.
So the show is kind of similar to the other baking show on the list that is Nailed It. Though it is not exactly similar since in the other show the amateur baker is chosen from the United States. In the show, a few groups are made in which the non-professional bakers of the United Kingdom are divided into a few groups. Then the groups compete with each other in different challenges during the week. Gradually with time, the final comes and the show has its winner. In most of the challenges, something or the other twist is involved such as some technical challenges and much more
Cooked with Cannabis
At the end of the list, there is another popular show titled Cooked With Cannabis. Unlike any other show, this show does not have many nice ratings but still, it has a rating of 6.7. Apart from that, the show has a total of 6 episodes which is covered in one season. Though the show is quite simple the main twist comes in the making of dishes. In each of the dishes, a new challenge appears where one has to use some form of THC and CBD. In the show, all the group has one motive to compete with each other and impress the panel of judges. Other than that the groups also need to make their position in each of the episodes to make their way to the finals.
