BBC’s ‘Two Fat Ladies’ Was the Perfect Fat-Positive Cooking Show

I generally don’t watch a lot of food television. After thinking about food and eating all day at work, the last thing I want to do is hear more from chefs as they prattle on about their amazing creative abilities and personal struggles on an episode of Chopped.

It doesn’t help that the format has been warped and abused over the past decade, with cooking shows growing ever more absurd in their attempts to attract viewers. From Guy’s Grocery Games to Gordon Ramsay’s Next Level Kitchen, I have no real tolerance for fucking around with the already-dramatic process of cooking by, say, making chefs switch kitchens in the middle of preparing the entree. Which is probably why I have an unrelenting love for the quiet simplicity of Two Fat Ladies, the best cooking show in television history.

Brooklyn Beckham’s New Cooking Show Is More Than Just Sandwiches

Recently, Brooklyn Beckham has got big into cooking. He’s shared a load of videos of him cooking up a storm in his kitchen on Instagram, plus he even went on The Today Show in America to show off his sandwich-making skills (but, actually, the less said about that the better…).

So, a cooking show is, of course, the next logical step for David and Victoria Beckham’s eldest son.

Brooklyn has teamed up with Facebook for Cookin’ With Brooklyn – an eight-part cooking series that’s available to watch now via Facebook Messenger’s streaming service, Watch Together.

The series follows Brooklyn as he meets a number of the world’s top chefs, including Nobu Matsuhisa, who is the man behind celebrity hot spot, Nobu.

“Alex vs. America” puts 15 brave chefs from across the United States take their best shot at beating Guarnaschelli in a head-to-head competition. As a cooking show judge veteran, Guarnaschelli was eager to throw her hat into the ring in competing alongside these chefs.

“This is a brainchild born from the fact that I have watched or been a part of some many great shows. Anyone knows that I’m no stranger to this. I started on ‘Iron Chef,’ which is why I wanted to be on Food Network,” said Guarnaschelli. “I would watch ‘Iron Chef’ and want to be on that show. Of course, along came ‘Chopped,’ then ‘Beat Bobby Flay.’ All of the sudden, I think I’m an accidental competition show cook by default.
