This week on food-related TV, we’ve got:
Tonight on No Reservations (10pm on the Travel Channel), Bourdain goes to Brazil. For a critical take on the show—you’re basically just watching a guy eat and it’s boring—read the Post here.
Episode 8 of Top Chef airs Wednesday at 10pm (Bravo). Daniel Boulud is the guest judge this week. Read EW’s wrapup of the previous episode here. Last week NY’s final representative on the show, Sara, got the boot; she gave an interesting post-show interview to Grub Street.
On Hell's Kitchen (tonight at 9pm, Fox), they’ve dragged the finale out for two weeks, and we hate it when shows do that. But this week really is the end. Read EW’s wrapup of last week’s non-episode here. And in Kitchen Nightmares news, a judge tossed the lawsuit filed by the former chef at Dillon’s, which was “fixed” by Ramsay for the upcoming series. Read about in the Post.
Martha Stewart is in repeats again this week (10am, NBC). But if you missed it the first time around, she’s got Chef Michael Lomonaco on Monday, Baker John Barricelli on Tuesday, and Baker Matt Lewis on Friday.
And PBS has five consecutive food shows running next Sunday, from 4-6:30pm. First up is Chef’s Story, featuring Alan Sailhac, then Food Trip with Todd English at 4:30pm, featuring a trip to Boston. America’s Test Kitchen follows with an episode on 30-Minute Skillet Casseroles, followed by Lidia Bastianich making braciole (cinnamon rolls) on Lidia’s Italy, then by Daisy Cooks! With Daisy Martinez.
