#55: The State of Food TV, Post Bourdain

December 13, 2018

The passing of Anthony Bourdain left a huge void in the food television landscape, and it is fair to wonder if it will ever be the same.

In this week's episode of The Katchup, Uproxx's Steve Bramucci and Vince Mancini, also host of the FilmDrunk Frotcast, join us in discussing the good, bad and absolutely terrible in food TV, post Bourdain. Bramucci has dabbled in the travel food route himself, and Mancini has built a cult following through his weekly Top Chef Power Rankings.

Personalities like Bourdain, Gordon Ramsay, and Guy Fieri forever changed the landscape of food television, but is is fair to question if the demand is still there. Even Netflix has gone "all in" on food, with its own shows like Chef's Table, Final Table, and an array of classic food programming. 

With so many food shows being created left and right, we dissect the ones that are actually worth your viewership.
