    "Kitchen Confidential," based on Anthony Bourdain's memoir about food, drugs and working in the kitchens of top restaurants. It is a single camera comedy.

    Jack Bourdain, played by Bradley Cooper, had it all but that all changed after one wild night. Four years later, he only has a great girlfriend and an average job working in her restaurant as an aide in Pizza Chain Kitchen. But, when Pino Lugeria contacts him to become Head Chef of his famous restaurant, Nolita, Jack knows this is an offer he cannot refuse. To further back up the offer, his girlfriend tells him he cannot afford to pass up an opportunity like this.

    He then recruits his old friends, Seth Richman (Nicholas Brandon) the pastry chef, Teddy Wong (John Cho), the seafood Chef and Steven (Owain Yeoman) who is his sous-chef. Not everything is perfect, given that the previous wait staff, particularly Mimi (Bonnie Somerville), believe he will run the restaurant into the ground. But Pino, and everyone, will be witnessing if he is capable of steering clear of his old ways.moreless

    Bravo (ended 2013)
    Top Chef Masters is the first of the Top Chef spin-offs. The series is produced by the Emmy Award-winning Magical Elves with Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz who serve as executive producers.

    Season Four: The show relocates to Las Vegas, and the challenges will no doubt reflect the glitzy new atmosphere. Twelve chefs, some repeaters from seasons one and two, compete for cash prizes that will be donated to their selected charities. Each round has $15,000 up for grabs from Quickfire and Elimination challenges. The chefs compete singly or in teams for a spot in the final and a shot at the $100,000 grand prize with its Top Chef Master title. Season Three: Season three hits the grill with a sizzle and some major changes. The competition has been retooled so that it is closer to the mother ship in format, has a smaller group of chefs and the resident critics have been pared down to two. What has not changed are the chefs at the top of their games, unique challenges, and a star-studded guest critic list. 12 master chefs compete in Quickfire and Elimination challenges as each one vies for the title of Top Chef Master and $100,000 for his or her charity. This season's challenges will use some of the Top Chef favorites, only with master twists to match these chefs' superior skills. Curtis Stone joins as host, and food critic and author Ruth Reichl begins her tour as judge with James Oseland, who returns from seasons one and two. A Magical Elves production.

    Season Two: Season two has arrived, and not content to sit on their laurels, Magical Elves has cooked up new Challenges, Quickfires and intense pressures for the chefs, as well as allowed some familiar faces back into the kitchen. This time around there are only 22 chefs, and the heats will play out over four weeks, instead of six. The two chefs with the highest star scores from each heat will move to the six-week champions round from which the Top Chef Master will be named. Kelly Choi continues her duties as host. Gail Simmons joins the judges' panel full time; her skills burnishing an already stellar group comprising food critic Jay Rayner, culinary expert James Oseland and restaurant critic Gael Greene.

    Season One: Twenty-four master chefs at the pinnacle of their professions play for $100,000 awarded to the winner's favorite charity, and the title of Top Chef Master. Let the judges be judged. The first of Magical Elves' Top Chef franchise shows hits the airwaves this summer, and while it may seem very similar to the original, the differences will test these executive chefs in very different ways. During the first six weeks of competition, groups of four will vie in heats with the winner moving forward to the four week champions round. Each night has two parts, an amped twist on a previous Top Chef Quickfire challenge that measures basic skill sets, and then an elimination that tests ingenuity and creativity as the chefs attempt to please both the diners and judges in order to progress to the finals. Kelly Choi hosts this competition tailor-made for foodies with a panel of respected judges, and guest stars that range from the real thing to personalities from Bravo's other reality series including Top Chef judges and contestants.moreless

    Channel 4
    This UK series is all about food. Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay shows his softer side at his London restaurant, The F Word, from which the show has taken its name. In case you have been wandering the F stands for Food of course. Each season has its own theme.

    Season one is centred on Ramsay preparing a three-course meal at the F Word restaurant for 60 invited diners. He has adapted some of his restaurant recipes so that everything that he cooks on the show can be cooked by anyone. The Times' restaurant critic Giles Coren acts as a field correspondent. Food writer Rachel Cooke also provides several reports on healthy eating. Two (or three) commis "battle" each other in every episode to earn a position at one of Ramsay's restaurants. 12 commis chefs appeared in the series out of a thousand applicants. Furthermore this season has turkeys as the featured animal that Gordon raised in his back yard, for food, so that his children gained a better understanding of where their food came from.This season also features Gordon's "Get Women Back in the Kitchen" campaign, for the promotion of which he visited several English households to help women who wanted to improve their culinary skills. A pudding (dessert) challenge, usually between Ramsay and a celebrity guest is also featured, the winner of which had the honour of serving his or her pudding to the guests at the F-Word restaurant.

    From the second series onwards the restaurant sits 50 paying guests served by a different brigade. The brigades featured in season two are amateur brigades. If guests found any of their food unsatisfactory, they could choose not to pay for that item. Janet Street-Porter became the series' field correspondent instead of Giles Coren who only appeared as a guest star. Pigs are the seasons featured animals raised once again By Gordon and his family in his back yard. The recipe challenge in this season includes any kind of food instead of pudding only. This series empha on the importance of Sunday lunch. Due to a schedule change bad language is not beeped out from this season onward.

    Food Network (ended 2010)
    With extraordinary skill and delicious results, Chef Robert Irvine delivers remarkable menus for either small groups or big crowds every week in spite of tremendous obstacles. In each mission, Chef Irvine is faced with culinary challenges that are unique to Dinner: Impossible in which he must overcome time restrictions, weather, personnel shortages, and interesting hurdles characteristic to the show, and creates a real risk that he may not complete his challenge.

    Broadcast History:

    Seasons 1-4 Master Chef Robert Irvine is presented with an unusual culinary challenge each week. Will he be able to come up with an authentic 18th century meal? Will he be able to create a rich culinary experience for 150 passengers on a luxury train? Watch one of the most respected and talented chefs in the world works with his two sous chefs, George and George, as he overcomes obstacles and delivers a culinary masterpiece.

    Broadcast Time: 10 p.m. Wednesdays E/P (Seasons 1-3 half-hour, Season 4 one hour)

    Season 5 Iron Chef and Restaurateur Michael Symon (Lola and Lolita in Cleveland, Ohio) takes on brand new challenges in season five, along with his sous chefs, Tim and Greg. Watch as this Culinary Institute of America graduate is challenged with missions most chefs would run from screaming, and enjoy the new rebel attitude as Michael and his Harley ride into each impossible dinner challenge.

    Broadcast Time: 10 p.m. Wednesdays E/P (half-hour)

    Seasons 6-8 Chef Robert Irvine returns to the show and is met with harder challenges and even more difficult venues for his trouble. These seasons included trips to the X Games, a roulette wheel that determined the number of diners, cooking for television casts and football teams, a fundraiser, and many more. Through it all, Irvine tried to maintain his cool and give everyone the culinary event of their lives.

    Broadcast Time: 10 p.m. Wednesdays E/P (one hour)

    Program Notes Robert Irvine was released after resumé discrepancies were exposed by Florida's St. Petersburg Times on February 17, 2008. He had taped three of the 13 one-hour episodes that had been ordered, which were burned off during the summer of 2008. The Food Network hired a new host, Michael Symon, and ordered 10 half-hour episodes that aired near the end of the summer 2008, although early press claimed these episodes would be one hour in length.

    Dinner: Impossible with Chef Symon at the helm took a slightly different tone, which illustrated the differences between a restaurateur caterer and an event chef. Fewer dishes were produced in each episode, and Michael's laid-back attitude was poles apart from Robert's highly charged delivery. On November 20, 2008, 15 days after Symon's fifth episode, The Food Network quietly released a written statement that Robert Irvine would return the following March with six one-hour episodes, although the date was pushed to April 2009. In a Cleveland.com interview on November 21, 2008, Simon indicated he knew when he accepted the job that it was almost certain that it would be for one season, but his contract prevented him from discussing it until after the announcement.moreless

    This series presented by Food Network follows Alton Brown of Good Eats fame as he and his crew travel the open roads of America in search of great food. Season one started on the shores of South Carolina, and followed the crew on their way to Los Angeles, steering clear of interstates when possible, Alton visits culinary landmarks along the way, some known, and some unknown, all while enlightening us with history of cuisine and culture along the way. Set to return this fall, Alton and company will travel the length of the Mighty Mississippi for season 2.

    Nothing plucks the heart strings of the American spirit like an open road. Oh, I'm not talking about those rivers of concrete which lure us with stable speeds and zero surprises. I'm talking about the highways and byways that really stitch this crazy quilt of a country together. Why, on routes like this, anything can happen. Consider cuisine: interstates give you culinary conformity, but out here, flavors change with the contour of the land, and words like hospitality take on old meanings. Why, I bet down around that curve there is a cafe, diner, tea room, or truck stop where the waitresses still call ya hun, and the cooks actually cook! How do I know? I don't, but I've got a map, and a motorcycle, and a month to find out. I'm Alton Brown, and this is Feasting on Asphalt - Alton Brownmoreless
