This lighthearted series features amateur cooks using ingredients from leftover meals to create brand new and tasty dishes. Like most cooking shows, there's lots of talk about flavor profiles, food textures, and presentation. But what makes this one interesting is how fully prepared food is re-envisioned and reworked to become entrees that look and taste completely different.

The competition isn't the most suspense-filled, and at times the panelists can get silly, but Best Leftovers Ever! is entertaining. It also offers some helpful advice about how to best store and handle different foods and ingredients. Watching it can help us begin to think a little bit more about how the food we ate yesterday can become today's outstanding meal. It might reduce what we throw into a compost bin, too.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
