Cooking show, I assume that you will be on a tripod. One with wheels would give you flexibility to track in as well as zoom. Being on a tripod, no worries with the weight, right? This was your hangup with the XLI and II, very good choices for your project.
If you are handheld you could get right on top of the food, except for steam, spray, juicy droplets trying to catch a ride on your lens. So I don’t recommend handheld for that reason, although a protection fllter is definitely advisable.
Another thing about handheld, for this kind of subject, you will be doing a high ratio of close-ups. Camera unsteadiness is multiplied in ECU shots (Extreme Close Ups). You don’t want to give your viewers nausea before the very first bite!
