When I first saw Spongebob I thought he was cheese!! Now I know better, I wouldn't want him in my lasagna... (like they did in the film "Just like heaven" )

I have to agree with so many of you that some of the TV chefs are just plain phony and annoying.
Giada's recipes are fantastic, never had a bad one but that everlasting open mouthed smile of hers drives me nuts. A friend of mine met her and asked how she could stay so thin eating that great food. She replied that she never eats a whole meal, she justs tastes it. Well to **** with that!!! I'm eatin'.
Rachel Ray and her incessant nervous giggling is another pain in my side. Not everything is funny and NOBODY is that happy all the time.
Emeril? Well I agree that the earlier show (Essence of Emeril) was calmer and more to the point, but he did look uncomfortable and those half-sentences where he would start to tell you what the was doing or what the next step is and then stop, used to make me crazy. The band is so out of place on his Live show I wonder why he needs to fill time with them. I record his show on DVR ifI see something I want to make and fast forward the band stuff.
And Paula Deen. Geez that god-awful southern accent is just too exaggerated to be true and grinds on my nerves. I never met a southerner that talked like that. Are all of her recipes loaded with heavy cream and butter? It's wonder she's still alive. Four sticks of butter for a recipe that serves 6 people is just waaaaay too much butter.
That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it!!

I agree that Giada's beautiful, vagriller, but have you seen her mother? She's drop-dead gorgeous.
Drama Queen, some people really do talk that way...you should have heard my aunt from Kentucky. I do agree that Paula gets awfully heavy on the butter, though.

I agree that Giada is drop dead gorgeous (man, what I'd give to have a body like hers!). I know Rachel has got a laugh, but I would listen to hers over Paula Deen's any ole day. As much as I love watching Paula's show, her laugh just grates on my nerves.

Then you don't want to hear me talk. Since I'm from NC and I've met quiet a few southerners who do talk just like that. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion though. Me I just watch the shows I enjoy and forget about the rest. I was taught if you can't say something good then don't say anything at all. That's just me though. I do enjoy most of the food network shows. To each his own.

Just a gentle reminder here, to everyone... let's not attack the personality etc. of the chefs, the way they talk or giggle, hot/not, are highly subjective issues and everyone has their likes and dislikes... here, let's stick to the discussion about the quality of the cooking shows... thanks!!

I've been to Georgia, and some folks in the south make Paula Deen sound like a yankee! Some people in south Georgia consider everyone north of and including Atlanta yankees.
