Just a reminder - this is how it started over at Food TV then it got more and more out of hand. Most of you will probably remember that when Food TV went down I did not allow the bashing over here that went on there. Please keep in mind that this is a human being we are talking about with feelings and there is no need to put her down in any way. None of us have any control over our features - if we did we would all look like Christy Brinkley and George Clooney (you know what I mean )

Thanks.

I want to echo Kitchenelf's comments. We have the friendliest foodie forum anywhere! Lets keep it that way and not bash the folks at FTV or anyone else.

Maybe not Christy Brinkly but I'd love to look like Angelina Jolie.

This is not bashing, but has anyone else noticed lots of unusually prolonged shots of Giada washing her hands, the cooking surfaces, etc? Given her family background, maybe it's intentional. As in, an artistic statement: cooking cleanses the soul. Or not.

Seriously, each chef has idiosycracies and many of the shows can be exasperating to watch but the shows and the comprehensive website, they are giving away the contents of literally tens of thousands of dollars of cookbooks for free. Now I doubt this is an act of pure altruism, but it is still very much appreciated.

By contrast, if you go to the site of Daisy Martinez as one example, she gives out only a few recipes, wanting people to buy her book:

Just my unsolicited, unqualified and unnecessary opinion but I think Giada is MUCH more attractive than Angelina Jolie. Just me though!

Her show is the best directed and edited show on the Food Network. Just look at the clean cuts and edits.
And of course she is a pure talent. In that she gives you all of the details of the ingrediants and why they are there.
The best show on the Food Network!
Close second is Food 911 and all of Bobby Flays BBQ shows.
Emeril sucks! He is such a ham and he doesn't cook so you can do it at home anyway. It's just a show. And is lousy.

The circus atmosphere is real annoying, but I've made a few of his Cajun/Creole recipes and they're all great. Before Emeril, the closest I ever came to that cuisine was Popeye's fried chicken and Zatarain's. OTOH, his forays into Italian cooking must make Batali cringe.
