This series lights all the burners, succeeding as a cooking show, a behind-the-scenes look at a Tour de France team, and a workplace drama all at once. Viewers who don't already have an interest in cycling may balk at watching a docuseries about the sport, but though Eat. Race. Win. does run through a lot of cycling terminology and methodology, cycling soon emerges as more like a framework around the show's real challenge: How to keep nine hungry athletes and their attendant crowd fueled both physically and emotionally.

As Grant points out in the first episode, there are two Tours de France: the one everyone knows, and hers. As the Tour de France team cycles over 3,500 kilometers (that's 2,200 miles for Yanks), Grant and her team have to shop and cook on the run, the movable kitchen taking the form of two food trucks that follow the athletes, the shopping in eye-pleasing markets and on beautiful farms around Europe. It's a big job, exactly the kind of thing that's fun to watch from a comfy couch. You can't taste the lamb shoulder or goat cheese bruschetta, but watching Grant and company churn it out, and the hard-working team make it disappear, is delightfully entertaining.
