Giada is my favorite chef on Food Network. She takes her time and seems very sweet.

I agree, and its even more true when you are unable to travel internationally. Unfortunately, I cant get out of the country much, but visiting the specialty markets, or the different city cultures ( chinatown, little italy, korea town..) their restaurants and shops, I at least feel like im getting a "taste" (pun intended and not intended) of what it might be like if and when I get the chance to explore some of these countries. Sure, its not the same , but still a nice way to get a foreign experience , without going crossing the border. hopefully Ill get the chance one day to visit and try all of these cuisines first hand.

As far as Giada goes, I agree she appears talented, and the few recipes ive tried have been good. But, I just have a hard time watching the show. Its just too over produced for me ( like other shows). I like the basic , get in and cook, minimal editing, no music, no 100 different camera angle shots. Just cook. But, thats me

LOL, she could click back the perk-o-meter about a thousand notches though.

She has the same exact ice cream maker I do!
