I was always intrigued by international cooking styles. The first time I went to an open kitchen restaurant I was almost too amazed to eat. I say almost because I certainly ate plenty. International cooking is my favorite. It should come as no surprise that I am a huge fan of many food stars that have their own cooking shows. It's much more than just something to watch, it's a glance into the world and cooking styles of a real chef.

There is no need to go out to a fancy restaurant nor pay for culinary classes. I simply turn on my TV, which I got by looking for cable tv promotions, and watch my favorite food shows. I learn everything from how to utilize exotic spices to new techniques to dice garlic. The most unusual ingredients and cooking methods make delicious food.

I'd never learn any of it without cooking shows. Reading recipes and cook books are just downright boring. I am a visual learner and frankly, I have to see it to believe it. I generally say that anything sounds good on paper but does it taste good when you prepare it? There is no guess-work when I watch cooking shows, the results are right there. The best part is there is no need to wait three hours to see how that roast turns out, it's already prepared and ready on the cooking show.
