I was in 10th grade when we got cable, which you could watch from your computer.
It was when, out of hundreds of channels, I found the Kitchen TV channel that my journey into the world of food and cooking began.
I watched every show indiscriminately, without pausing or changing the channel. Some programs I liked more, some less, but my favorite were those with Jamie Oliver.
I started to cook at home a lot and fantasized that one day I would travel a lot and try completely different dishes around the world.
It's been over 10 years and I'm still in love with Jamie's style and simplicity of presentation. He gives emotion, ease, and lots of great recipes for everyone for every day.
In general, cooking shows are a special kind of dope. When you watch these shows, you drool, watch the professionals, learn from them, get inspired, feel like a real chef and go to the kitchen.
