America's Test Kitchen is a great cooking show that is practical and entertaining. While not quite as fun as watching Alton Brown on Good Eats, the test kitchen chefs give you tried and tested tips for cooking and baking American classics and explain the science of food and cooking along the way so that you understand why they're doing what they're doing.
I enjoy that the recipes and instructions are geared towards the average home cook, someone without a lot of fancy gadgets and who doesn't have hours to spend in the kitchen. The segments where they rate kitchen gadgets they've tested and food they've taste-tested are very valuable to someone who's still a novice at cooking.
Overall this is a great show for someone who enjoys food shows or is learning how to cook or how to improve their favorite meals.
