THE 23 BEST COOKING SHOWS OF ALL TIME, RANKED

Cooking shows have covered a lot of ground over the years. Want to learn how to turn your garden pots into tandoori ovens? There's a show for that. Want to watch sweaty combatants duke it out in a culinary stadium? There are... a lot of shows for that, actually. But for every program that finds success in teaching ordinary folks how to chop onions like a pro (DON'T YOU DARE CRY ON ME!), there are more than a few that don't quite make the cut.

So, to separate the wheat from the chaff, we ranked the best cooking shows of all time. We hope you like Gordon Ramsay, because that guy's everywhere.
