Door Knock Dinners, often called Doorknock Dinners, is a program that aired on Food TV in the late 1990s. The program featured Gordon Elliott taking a guest chef (or himself) into the home of a busy person/household and cooking the family a dinner using only the items they had in their home.

Door Knock Dinners is most notable for giving Paula Deen and Tyler Florence attention, landing Deen a television program, Paula's Home Cooking, that first aired in November 2002. When Iron Chefs Japanese Masaharu Morimoto and Rokusaburo Michiba appeared on the show in uniform ahead of Morimoto's first battle against Bobby Flay in New York and prepared dinner for a family in Rye, the show adapted many Iron Chef mechanics in honor of them, including graphics and announcers as if the challenge were a Kitchen Stadium battle.[1] Footage from the episode was also used in the official Iron Chef broadcast leading up to and including the battle.
