Food Network Vault

I think I may have discovered the Food Network's online vault: a secret list (and sometimes web pages) of the current shows, past shows, and way past shows. I don't think the web team knows this is still up or publicly available, so get your reminscence on while you can.

















It's kind of like looking at an old yearbook.

All right: cue everyone crying over how much they miss these shows. And... go!

I have been trying to think of a show that use to be on. It had two ladies, and the blonde was kind of crazy. One would cook something, and the other would try and lighten it up and make it healthier. Does anyone remember that one?

Oh how I miss Sara Moulton and Cooking Live! Why on earth did FN ever decide that people would rather see Rachael Ray and Aunt Sandy rather than the delight that is Ms. Moulton?

For the record, I also really loved Cookworks and Melting Pot!

What about Calling All Cooks and Ready...Set...Cook? I loved those shows. Am I the only one?

Eh, I miss Melting Pot, and maybe East meets West a little bit (although the day I heard Ming say he was drinking a wine from "Ore-gone" was the last time I watched). The rest though, not so much. Sarah Moulton was just too much for me.

Like any TV shows, you are bound to miss certain ones and not miss some others. Food Network has had some pretty lame shows over the years, as have most mainstream networks, so gems like DoorKnock Dinners can happen anywhere.

You do bring up an intersting point jake. Wouldn't it be a blast if FN brought some of these oldies back for reruns and create "retro week" ? Or would it be too embarrassing ?

Yes! It was called "Lighten Up!"! It was pretty good actually! LOL!

Oh, how I wish FN would bring back East Meets West or produce any Asian cooking shows.

To the previous commenter--I LOVED Ready...Set...Cook. Thanks for the reminder.

I, too, miss the old shows! I wish they would have a retro week! That's be so cool! Or even have old shows run from like 2am-4am before they go to paid programming. I know they have a couple old ones from 3-4am but they're dumb ones, like "Kitchem Accomplished". I've emailed FN several times on this subject, but they don't seem to care about what the viewers want. *roll eyes* It's too bad, I've been a fan since the network started, and a lot of those old shows, were way better than today's poop!

EMW is on Fine Living Network! I don't get that channel but my parent's do, and if I'm there when it's on, I tune in! I miss Ming!
FLN also shows Molto Mario, Best Of, and Follow That Food! I wish they'd pick up some more oldies but goodies! I'd be having my parents tape stuff all the time for me! LOL!

I really miss Two Fat Ladies. I know one of them died, maybe both by now, but they were a little more than a cooking show.

WTF is wrong with FN programming hacks that think we want to watch Sandra Lee open up a can of clam chowder,or watch Guy Fieri try and act 22 yrs old when these ladies are smoking and drinking and cooking up somegood ole English artery clogging delites.

I miss the Surreal Gourmet, David Rosengarten, Two Fat Ladies, and that show with the two gay guys who ran a dog bakery. Oh, and I miss the Two Hot Tamales a little.

David Rosengarten was the best, I wish they would show epsiodes of Taste again.

Oh, I loved Two Fat Ladies! If I were president of FN, I'd trade all of Bobby Flay's shows for one season of TFL repeats.

I'd like to see past episodes of Mingya's Quest.

Two Fat Ladies and David Rosengarten, yes! We're talking oldies, but goodies.

I use to watch the Naked Chef. Freaking awesome.

I really loved all of the old shows! Right now, there is nothing on there show listings that I like to watch other than Paula, of course. I think that FN should bring back all of the "original" shows.

Does anyone remember the original How to Boil Water? With some comedian named Sean and a female chef? Man, I loved that show.

Ready. Set. Cook. was the show that "introduced" me to the FN and we're still together. I do miss Ming and Sarah and all the others. I looked forward to Cooking Live every night. While I do believe in change and progression and all that I can do without Sandra "seasoning packet" Lee and all of the shows devoted to challenges and travel. Also, they should mix it up. Why is RR on twice when I get home from work? I would Giada in one of those spots.

FN needs to stop with the FN Challenge shows! No one I know likes them! Who cares who makes a pie or ices a cake best!?!? I agree, all the travel shows are getting out of hand. Looks like they're using Giada as a replacemnet for Rachael in the future! LOL!

Oh man I can't believe no one has mentioned The Dessert Show with Debbie Fields of Debbie Fields cookies! I loved that show! She was kinda crazy. I watched it as a kid (been addicted to cooking a long time) and seem to remember her making a huge mess and half the time not even finishing her recipes. I really liked Taste as well. He was the Alton Brown of early FN, but I think I enjoy him more than Alton.

I loved Calling All Cooks as well. That was a great show. So many Yummy recipes!! I wish they would bring that show back.

The "What's Hot, What's Cool" Seems like RayRay's predecessor.

Melting Pot was great. So were all the Jamie Oliver shows. I wish his new one was at a better time...

The original 'How to Boil Water' was with Sean Donellen and Cathy Lowe. Cathy was part of the kitchen staff at the time.

I used to love to watch The Bimbo's Dessert Show with Debbi Fields. "Stir, stir stir!" What a laugh. On one of her shows she was rolling out a pie crust. As she went to lift it, her long red nails went right through the crust. So funny.

What about the French guy (was he French??) on How to Boil Water?? And the girl with the big mouth?

I couldn't stand the announcer lady on Ready, Set, Cook. She was SO on my nerves.

I can't stand all the travel shows on FN, either. That's what Samantha Brown does besf on the Travel Channel.

Also, I would LOVE to see some old Wolfgang, Galloping Gourmet, JULIA CHILD, for crying out loud!! You know, people that actually COOK!!!! Or is that what PBS is for????
