Cooking Shows You Can Watch On Netflix
Netflix is becoming more and more popular these days as shows like Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, and Queer Eye explode across the internet. More than 100 million people have memberships to the streaming service, and there are countless movies and tv shows available for them to watch. In more recent years, Netflix has expanded even further to produce baking and cooking shows - watch out, Food Network! Here are a few fun cooking competition shows to check out on Netflix.
One of Netflix’s more recent ventures, Nailed It! is a reality show where home bakers attempt to recreate edible masterpieces for a chance to win a $10,000 prize. Here’s the catch: all of them are terrible. The end result is usually a hot mess, which makes it all the more entertaining for the audience as the contestants struggle their way through the episodes and make light of their sub-par decorating skills. The series is ridiculous and funny, especially with the odd challenges the contestants must complete, like painting portraits on cookies and building edible busts of Donald Trump.
Famous Australian chef, Adriano Zumbo, is the host of this Netflix series in which contestants compete for a $100,000 prize. He is known as a dessert wizard for his creative and inventive work in the kitchen. The show gives off distinct Willy Wonka vibes, from the colorful walls and floors to the imaginative challenges. Ice cream igloos, golden tickets, and fairy tale desserts are all featured in the first season. If you’re looking for a playful, but competitive reality show to binge, this one's for you.
The whole family can get in on the fun with this cooking competition. The competitors in this show are families that are passionate about food, that present their most delicious dishes to the judges in the hopes that they will be considered Britain’s best home cooks. Two families are pitted against each other each week to determine who will make it to the semifinals. In the finals, the top three families must prepare a full feast for the judges. It’s both heartwarming and entertaining to watch these families come together to cook.
This Netflix series is the first-ever competitive cannabis cooking show. In each episode, two chefs prepare marijuana-infused dishes for a panel of celebrity judges. This show is perfect for binge-watching, with short, 15-minute episodes that are chock full of entertainment. It’s definitely new and unusual, but it might be worth a shot.
Next time you’re looking for something to binge, and it feels like you’ve watched every other show on Netflix, give one of these a try. If you’re a Food Network fan, you’ll be sure to enjoy them.
