Well, since I'm not in the minds of Food TV I can't say that I can watch her and see ONLY what Food TV wants her to be.
Can't we give her a break here? She is new to being in front of a camera...I couldn't do it, nor could most of us, right out of the gate.
Even if you prefer to watch Jacques Pepin and Julia reruns, if you decide to cook any of their food you will still need to buy a few things/spices
Every time I watch a cooking program my main focus is to learn something new. Those programs I don't care for I simply don't watch.
