When we published the best cooking shows on Netflix list, some of you asked for the best food shows and cooking shows on Hulu. I’m here for you, so in no particular order, here are (in my opinion) the 18 best cooking shows on Hulu right now, and I threw in a few foodie movies for good measure –

  • Giada in Italy – The queen of Italian cuisine never disappoints.
  • Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics – Ina Garten is certainly qualified to teach a cooking class, and this is a good one. I love her pie crust.
  • Ayesha’s Home Kitchen – I love the Currys and this is a fun show with some great entertaining and family food ideas.
  • Eat, Sleep, BBQ – You know I love a good lifestyle food show, and Rashad Jones traveling the country looking for barbecue fits the bill.
  • Kampai! For the Love of Saki – Ok, you’ll have to really be interested in the history and making of saki for this one. I love to dig deeply into one ingredient, so I’m in. Also, it’s a movie of sorts, not really a TV show, but whatever.
  • Britain’s Best Home Cook – I don’t usually watch competition shows, but Mary Berry is my queen and where she goes, I follow.
  • Cake Boss – This show seems to be kind of polarizing, but my son loves it and I love watching it with him so I’m here for it.
  • Tasty 101 – A quick and interesting watch for brushing up on basic skills. I especially love the episode on cast iron, if you haven’t switched yet, it will make you a better cook.
  • Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations – I haven’t watched a minute of his work since he died, and I don’t know when I’ll be able to, but I’ve seen each one at least twice and this stands as his best work, in my opinion.
  • The Quest of Alain Ducasse – Again, a movie but whatever. It’s Alain Ducasse.
  • Neat: The Story of Bourbon – Bourbon’s America’s native booze, and I’m a mint julep kind of girl so I found this story captivating. Again, a documentary, not a TV show.
  • Behind the Bar – I was a bartender through college and my secret dream (the one I know from experience would not be nearly as idyllic as it is in my mind) is to open a neighborhood Friends-style coffee bar that turns into Cheers at night. Free food, good drinks, nice people. Anyway, I digress – this is a good show if you, too, are nostalgic for your foodservice days or if you just want to learn what life is like behind the bar. For the same reasons, I also watch a lot of the overly-dramatic Restaurant: Impossible.
  • Food Paradise – One season about the food people seek when they travel about the U.S. Some good recommendations if you frequently do so, I’m adding to my food bucket list with every episode.
  • Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Home Cooking – If you only watch one show this year, make it this one. You heard me rave about it on the Amazon Prime list and this remains the best thing on food TV for me. A thorough lesson in cookery a bit beyond the basics, Ramsay will take you through the steps in the most concise and easy to follow way and your cooking confidence will soar.
  • Jamie’s Quick & Easy Food – I know Jamie Oliver is a polarizing figure in the food world of late, but as I’ve mentioned before, he’s the one who piqued my son’s interest in cooking and remains his favorite, so he’s always on our list. These quick episodes will teach you technique and are a great way to beef up your rotation using easy-to-find ingredients. JO has a way of elevating flavors and these recipes are no exception.
  • The Pioneer Woman – I’ve gotten a lot of decent recipes from her shows and again, she uses ingredients we can all find easily so that’s a plus. I’m interested in her outside pursuits, as well. Like our favorite fam in Waco, she’s singlehandedly turning a small town into a tourist destination and that’s fun to watch.
  • Tasty’s Made by Hand – We talked about this on the Amazon list, too. It’s a beautifully-made, easy, quick series about where things come from.

That’s my summer binge list, hope you enjoy it! When you’re done, check out what we’re watching on Amazon Prime, Netflix, and (my favorite) PBS as well.
