Guest Star: Which Cooking Show Would You Like to Be On?

We wouldn’t last five minutes on a show like Top Chef, but that doesn’t mean we don’t harbor the fantasy. And who among us hasn’t daydreamed about being asked to “pop in” to one of Ina Garten’s special gatherings? Oh, the witty things we would say! Where would you love to put in a guest appearance?

If I had to pick just one, my top choice would be as a guest judge on Iron Chef. Definitely not competing - no way I could take the heat of Kitchen Stadium. But sitting up at that judges’ table and giving with Alton Brown about my opinion of diver scallops? I’d be there in a heartbeat.

An extremely close second would be joining Anthony Bourdain for one of his meals on No Reservations. In my head, I would be able to match him offal for offal while maintaining a steady stream of entertaining conversation. And hey, this is my fantasy, right?

What about you? Which show would you like to be on?
