Watched Paula. I absolutely *adore* her. Haven't watched the others, but I haven't really had time. Perhaps I can record them this weekend on my computer.

HI You Guys!!! Pete here in Marathon, Florida! Fnally got my computer back and am back on line!!! Whew, what a job. And of course not finished. Have to load all of my software too.
But, I did see Giada last night. I was also suprised that she was so shy in the early days. I thought the show was pretty good.
I did know she was the Grandaughter of the famous movie producer/director. And her Mom is so beautiful too!
I'm sure glad she stuck with it because she does a fine job now! Very good Italian cooking here! I'm going to get her book also.
I am glad to be back with you all!

Hi Pete! Great to see you back.
I agree...Giada's mother is gorgeous. But then, she's been pretty well taken care of, I'm sure.

For all the westcoasters Chefography is on at 9 pm tonight. I watched it for the first time last night and really enjoyed the biography on Giada. I missed Emeril's, but I will catch it some other time.

It would be nice, since the title of the show is "Chefography", to feature more people who have actually held the title of Chef. But what can we really expect from FoodTV these days?

On a side note, I did watch that show about the Seafood Grilling competition. That was pretty entertaining. I needed a good laugh.

I'll confess - IMHO you can have Giada (as much as I love her) - I have a thing for her mother. And her aunt really cooks, too!

Knowing a little about their backgrounds - I really wish they would do a "Chefography" show on Jacques Pépin and Wolfgang Puck.

As for Emeril - he did work his way up from pot scrubber .... but really needs a live audience to play off of to make his schtick work - like a stand-up comedian (Dennis Miller really sucks without the live audience interaction). Did anyone ever see him on his episodes of "How To Boil Water"? I really felt sorry for him!

Dennis Miller did How to Boil Water???

Just kidding! Yeah, Emeril almost looked like he was in pain in the few early clips they showed of it on Chefography.

And Sydfan, they didn't mention depression once in Emeril's episode!

Did anyone watch Ina last night? It seems everything she touched turned to gold.
