Cooking is one of those things we all wish we did more of — and with times being so uncertain, many are learning about the fine art of culinary design in their own homes. What better way than to learn about cooking from the masters themselves? There are so many different cooking shows out there: ones that actually teach you how to cook, and ones that take the format of a game or reality show to present cooking. Or maybe you don't want to cook anything at all but instead learn about the history behind your favorite foods. Either way, however you want to experience cooking there's a show for you! The 15 shows assembled here are all available to stream and will leave your mouth watering. You might not become a master chef by the end but you'll be full.

“Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations”

In 2000, chef Anthony Bourdain published his book “Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly.” The book was a success and turned Bourdain into one of the most prominent celebrity chefs out there. After hosting the short-lived Food Network series “A Cook's Tour” in 2002, he returned to television in 2005 with the series “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” on the Travel Channel. The nine-season series saw Bourdain and crew traveling all over the world, sampling the local cuisine and learning about what goes into cooking throughout various countries.

“No Reservations” garnered attention for the bizarre things Bourdain would eat, as well as the political things he'd capture. In 2006, his camera crew captured the conflict between Israel and Lebanon, with Bourdain having to find a way to get his team out of the country. The show would garner Emmy nominations in 2007 and won twice, in 2009 and 2011, for Best Cinematography. You can stream all nine seasons of the show via SlingTV or six seasons for free via Pluto TV.

“Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern”

Similar to “No Reservations,” “Bizarre Foods” saw host Andrew Zimmern travel to exotic locations to try the local cuisine that Westerners would consider dangerous or disgusting. The series would air for 23 seasons between the Travel Channel and TLC, with Zimmern doing the one season spin-off, “Bizarre Worlds.” Some of the more “bizarre” foods Zimmern ate without hesitation include poached calf's brains, lamb kidneys, and medicinal dirt. SlingTV has 12 of the series' 23 seasons available to stream.

“Chopped”

Seeing several spin-offs and themed shows, Food Network's “Chopped” is one of their marquee titles. Started in 2009, the show is a competition series where a group of culinary artists go through three rounds, making elaborate masterpieces that must contain select key ingredients they do not know in advance. These mystery ingredients can be something simple like walnuts to the truly bizarre, like Rocky Mountain oysters. A panel of judges analyze the dish and the implementation of the ingredients with the winner securing $10,000. The mystery angle is what keeps audiences coming back and “Chopped” has done episodes devoted to sweets, sandwiches, and anything else you can think of eating. You can stream all 45 seasons of the show via the Food Network app or 14 seasons on Hulu.

“The Food That Built America”

“The Food That Built America” is equal parts foodie adventure and history lesson. The History Channel series examines the variety of food moguls that gave us the treats we love the most, whether that's cereal magnate Milton Kellogg or chocolatier Milton Hershey. Episodes have also examined the rise of the Heinz condiment corporation and the creation of McDonalds. So if you've ever wanted to know how the foods you love initially had simpler beginnings — before corporate interests took hold — this should satisfy you. The entire first season is available to stream on Sling.

“The French Chef”

The chef, author, and teacher presented French cooking on her series “The French Chef” to the masses during a time when the cuisine was considered snobby and expensive. Running from 1963-1973, “The French Chef” also became an early television success as much of it was filmed live-to-videotape with Julia Child's flubs, considered “teachable moments,” being captured for audiences to see — this made her relatable to many a burgeoning French chef wanting to cook. The series ran for 10 seasons but you can watch the entirety of Season 1 via Amazon Prime.

“Good Eats”

If you love Bill Nye the Science Guy but wished he talked about cooking more then have we got the guy for you. Alton Brown is the culinary equivalent of those educational kids' shows you loved, albeit with food. “Good Eats” sees Brown teach the science behind cooking, food history, and the best type of food equipment to have on hand; you never know when you might want to make ceviche or something! Using a unique teaching method that almost makes this like a culinary PowerPoint, Brown is humorous, likable, and looks like he'd make you quite the dinner. The show was the third longest-running series on Food Network, running from 1999-2011. The show was revived back in 2019, giving us a whole new spate of Brown bon mots. All 15 seasons of the original series are on Food Network and the first season of “Good Eats: Reloaded” can be found on Hulu.

“Guy's Grocery Games”

There are many options for streaming if you're a Guy Fieri fan, but the one that made this list combines the world of “Chopped” with “Supermarket Sweep.” “Guy's Grocery Games” sees four chefs undergo a series of themed events where they have to race through an actual supermarket to collect their items and cook.

“Ugly Delicious”

Netflix's “Ugly Delicious” draws from the likes of “No Reservations” or “S, Fat, Acid, Heat” in that it sees host David Chang exploring the cultural specificity in a dish. The distinction is that Chang's series sees him travel to different countries to see how a certain food item, like pizza or fried chicken, is reinterpreted by the people who live there. It's a series that challenges our preconceived notions of food. Both seasons of “Ugly Delicious” are on Netflix now.

Our review: While “Ugly Delicious” explores today's ills and challenges preconceptions, the idea of using “ugly delicious”-style foods could point the way forward to creating real meaningful understanding, and through that, change. In the very least, it provides plenty of food for thought. — Hahn Nguyen

“Unwrapped”

One of the earliest shows many a foodie remembers is “Unwrapped,” wherein Marc Summers — of Nickelodeon's “Double Dare” fame — uncovers the origins behind America's favorite foods. Through more than 20 seasons Summers would look at the creation of everything from Tootsie Rolls to swater taffy. Audiences would get a first-hand look at the processes to make our favorite foods and how things are tweaked to make them either extra colorful, chocolatey, or downright delicious. The original series ended in 2011 but it was later revived, dubbed “Unwrapped 2.0” in 2015 and airing on the Cooking Channel where its hosted by “Fresh Prince” actor Alfonso Ribeiro. The original 22 seasons of “Unwrapped” are over at Food Network.
