Dining education for foodies

Before Food Network, there was PBS. And before Gordon Ramsay, there was the guy who allegedly inspired The Swedish Chef. One thing’s for sure: when TV, food and chefs collide, magic happens.

Food on TV has created a slew of celeb chefs, and spanned (and spawned) multiple subgenres of television entertainment, from fast food to foraged food, global food, cooking competitions, food politics, food science and more. Take a peek at the personalities behind the scenes—as well as the shows that have stolen our hearts and satisfied our stomachs since food first hit the airwaves.
