I've also broke bread with some that I couldn't understand a word they said but the food bridged that gap.
ok i know what yous means being from ne nj but what does yins means?

cooking like language flavors life. Some food to me is to bland and some words to spicey. I guess it is true for looks clothes humour faith and politics. They can fire you up or leave you cold. IMHO The real art is to step outside of yourself to recognize what emotions are playing within you due to the flavors of life and then savour the realization.

I've spend almost 20 years in the south. I find myself saying all 'y'all sometimes. It's like speaking Japanese when you're in Japan. They understand you better. LOL

It's possible to attack ANY TV cooking show and criticize the host. But it's supposed to be about the food and if you don't like the food, you get to switch to another show.

agreed, Andy. I must have really been crabby when I had my original thought. Giada's fine, even tho her "assets" don't register as strongly with me as with some of you guys (now if you want to talk about Jacques' or the Dinner Impossible guy's assets, I'm there!).

In fact, I recently lifted an idea from Giada that I posted over on the appetizers thread.

The World according to Italy. At least in her eyes. It's as if no other country knows how to cook.

And love how she speaks Italian for those special things only belonging to Italy.


I cook what I like because I like what I cook!
