My favorite cooking show just has to be "Good Eats" with Alton Brown. His recipes are fairly easy...and if they are not, he explains it with step by step instructions. He has a bit of humor on his show and a great deal of knowledge on cooking technique is dispensed. Just ask him what a shallot is and your answer would be, "Well structurally it's like, well, imagine if an onion and head of garlic got together and got married and had a kid." That's how he has explained what a shallot was.
