I love pepper! It's like I have a little food with my pepper sometimes.

I like her show too. Brown food tastes good!
She can be quite a dork though, the growl and funny sayings (I'm a super-speed demon).
I pepper just about everything also, Tellicherry is my favorite.

Add cayenne pepper in my pepper mill? I never thought of doing that but it sounds like a great idea to me. I always use salt and pepper in anything I cook and use mixed peppercorns in my pepper mill, but cayenne pepper can only make it better. Will do that today. It's like Lidia Bastianich. Lidia puts "pepperoncino" (hot red pepper flakes) in everything she makes. I'm okay with that too so the cayenne appeals to me.

I finally saw her show a couple of days ago and thought that she came off kind of crass. She was talking about how you need to roast the crap out of the bell peppers and also said now I have my peppers I roasted the crap out of them. Im no saint at all and would say that at home but I really don't think that would be my choice of word on TV. She just didn't come across with much class in her way of talking. I also saw her taste a glob of the pate from her finger and then shake the rest back into the bowl. Tasting with finger didn't bother me but then shaking what was left back into the bowl is something I would not do even if I was alone and no one saw me.

I'm the same. You have to be considerate of other people. I've noticed people in the supermarket squeezing the self serve donuts who lick their fingers then keep on squeezing donuts and not buy them leaving them for someone else. Gross.

I could not imagine not using black pepper. I also have several pepper mills. Some just black, some green, some all three. I am not really fond of spicy foods, but I do like a little kick. If this woman puts as much salt as you are saying, I have no interest in her show at all. I was going the natural route. Only really butter, etc. That got my wife and me into a lot of trouble. Her cholesterol was 297. I got it down to 165 in a month. I use a lot of Grape Seed and Olive Oil. Very little fried foods, which is not easy in South Louisiana. Since I have cut back on the salt, I find some restaurant foods to be overly salty. I do like to take about 2 tbls of red pepper flakes wrapped in cheese cloth, and boil them for about 10 minutes in olive oil. I let is sit in there for about a day, and then transfer it to a bottle. It has a slight reddish color, and it is great in cooking and on fresh bread. It gives the foods a nice pepper flavor without hitting clumps of pepper. By removing the pepper, it last a little longer in that bottle than when you have fresh herbs in there.

It is something I have used for many things, and could not think of anything else. I just found this forum today, and I love it.

Food Network is all about the entertainment value. Not that Anne Burrell isn't a good chef, but she's on TV because of how she is in front of the camera. Same reason why a hack like Guy Fieri can have so many cooking shows.
