How to Boil Water

How to Boil Water

"How to Boil Water" is an American television program. One of the first shows on the Food Network, it began broadcasting in 1993 and was first hosted by Emeril Lagasse. The focus of the show is simple cooking, as the show's title suggests, and is directed at those who have little cooking skill or experience.

In the beginning of the history of Food Network, "How To Boil Water" was the trademark show of the network. As Emeril's personal popularity grew, he eventually moved on to his own show, "Essence of Emeril". "How to Boil Water" continued with the tandem of comedian Sean Donnellan and chef Cathy Lowe. With this duo, the show followed the formula of a chef teaching somebody with no experience.

After Donnellan and Lowe, Frederic van Coppernolle along with comedian Lynne Koplitz, then later Jack Hourigan, were the show's hosts. The show's format followed the formula similar to when Emeril hosted. Today, they are back to the chef-and-student model with chef Tyler Florence and Jack continuing as co-host.
