I agree. This is comedy. enjoy or change the channel. (still, I think more real cooking goes on here than on some other shows on Food and Cooking TV)

I am not a big fan. I used to like her as a sous chef. On her own show and others, I just think she over does it.

I was doing some research. Lidia Bistianich also helped her career. She's not stupid, I just think it's overbearing.

Bitchin' Kitchen....

As far as comedy and business... she has no business being on tv. It's awful.

I can watch almost any kitchen show but there is something about the way she is always right up in the camera pointing and flipping her hair that drives me batty. It's almost as if I feel she is invading my personal space through the TV screen.

Et tu, Merlot?

<3 Nadia.

Lol, I really wanted to like her! just for you

An edit on former post, I think she jerks her head sortive back and forth instead of flipping her hair, you know just in case you get the urge to let it bother you too. heheh

One and done with me. Sorry I find her neither funny nor entertaining.I don't care much for Paula Deen but I'd rather watch a Deen marathon than endure another minute of Nadia. So yes, I move the channel select. Man, what passes as comedy or entertainment these days.

Some of her recipes are really good. She hooked me on the menu to dump someone by. The salad plated in the Chinese take-out box? Priceless. The recipes I've made have turned out pretty yummy. Love her kitsch. I love her crew too....especially Panos!

I guess that this is one of those threads which won't die.

I saw about 5 minutes of Bitchin' Kitchen just this week for the first time (we have Canadian satellite here and it's on their version of Food Network). I may not have made it through 5 minutes, actually. I have no idea what she was cooking because I couldn't get past the act. 'Nuff said.

I love Anne Burrell. Yes she is weird, and at first it put me off, but I think that she is genuine, and that's what I like, a celebrity who is still a person.

How to cook like Paula Deen: You start with a pound of butter, than add to that most any recipe you want. (I realize that she has worked to clean up the buttery side of her cooking, but still that's where she comes from). I think that some of her dishes would be great, but just reading the recipe can bring on heart failure. I made one once for my chocoholic mother, a double chocolate gooey butter cake (or something close to that). Mom loved it (at age 85 it probably wasn't going to do any damage that hadn't already been done), but I wouldn't make it again. I love my family too much to cook that way most of the time.
