Only took the promo to know it isn't for me. However, if I had a choice between watching her and a cooking show with Joe Bastianich, she would be my choice hands down. Her obnoxious and arrogant behavior is schtick. With Bastianich, its real.

I'm a bit late for this thread but I've just been watching one of the shows. The programmes are on Food Network UK over here. Technical how-to-do-it shows they aren't but I think they are great fun. Not to be taken seriously.

Mind you - candied bacon!!!

Is Paula Dean's accent real? Even to a "foreigner" it sounds put on. We get a show on television where her son makes low fat versions of her dishes and his accent isn't anywhere near hers

Another friend sent me "brass knuckles" meat tenderizer. Nadia would be jealous.
Move over, Kathleen, so I can join you in the corner. I love "Bitchin' Kitchen" because it's such good fun (and, people, I consider myself a "serious cook").
