Dishing About Cooking Shows

Posted: Thursday, June 21, 2018 by: Pablo Vinuesa Berchetti | Category: Education

Instructor: Mary Bilyeu
Thursday, June 21 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Cost: $17 members; $27 non-members

Cooking shows used to teach us kitchen techniques, as they did when Julia Child prepared omelets and Duck á l’Orange on The French Chef. Now, these episodes can be anything from instructional opportunities to frenzied games, fascinating travelogues or pure escapist entertainment. The shows can be fun, frustrating and even food for thought.

Join Mary Bilyeu, The Blade’s Food Editor for a discussion of her favorite fare: PBS’ The Great British Baking Show, the Food Network’s Chopped, Netflix’s Ugly Delicious, and BuzzFeed’s Worth It. Watch clips and then chat about what we like, what we don’t like, and how hungry we’re getting as we assess the shows. (There’s a reason this class was scheduled before lunch.)

Don’t delay: Register now, or else you’ll be chopped!

Mary Bilyeu, who is completely obsessed with scrummy bakes (and avoiding soggy bottoms!), has been Food Editor at The Blade since 2014. She writes recipe features, columns, and updates about food news; showcases frugal finds in Cheap Eats videos; and introduces some of the Toledo area’s most interesting food professionals – from chefs and bakers to farmers and kombucha brewers – in The Full Course interview episodes.
