TV’s food and cooking shows are continually battling to capture the attention of discerning viewer palates. Competing in a crowded market, producers are finding crazier challenges, wackier contestants, and more exotic locales. This fall is no different. From dining with President Barack Obama to getting in shape at a U.S. Army training boot camp to pint-sized chefs breaking down birds, say what you will about food TV — but it’s never boring.
