Do cooking shows drive anyone else crazy?
Okay, firstly I'll say that I love watching food shows... but there is one thing that irritates me so much - the apparent lack of food safety! Does anyone else not get frustrated when they handle raw meats/egg/etc. and then either do not wash their hands or give them the most brief "rinse" which could not possibly be of any benefit? For a while I was thinking, maybe they just don't bother because no ones eats the food. But sometimes they do eat the food they prepare, and I just don't get it. Are they not concerned about food poisoning when they do that? Or am I just totally missing something? I mean sometimes they'll literally handle raw meat and then touch all their other utensils, salt, pepper, fridge door, anything... it makes no sense to me since they are supposed to be advising novice home cooks how to work in the kitchen.
Anyway, I still enjoy the shows for entertainment, but I cannot get past that point.
