I LOVE bobby flays recipes, but I've noticed on throw down, that he really doesn't win that often...which is sort of sad.

I've noticed that Guy Fieri looks like he's tired of Diners Drive thrus and Dives and wants to pass the reins on to ME.

Giada...though I love her recipes....we get it...you have breasts. And yep, there they are...dipping into your egg wash. :)

It's too in your face. Rachel Ray is beautiful and you don't see her or Sandra Lee showing off their....assets. It's borderline vulgar as far as I am concerned and I am not even that uptight about showing a little skin, but when her boobs are in more shots than the food it's getting pretty ridiculous.

.
I think that is by design. One of the winning criteria is authenticity and he is always putting some spin on the food. He always seems a bit surprised when he wins.

watching RR right now, her voice really is declining, seems an effort just to speak normally, hope it gets better soon for her sake.

sandra lee is my fav. no chef, but fun, quick and inventive food.

actually the only one i won't watch at all is emeral. i think he is a phony.

actually since the news about the election seems to catch my eye, haven't watched very much of food tv lately.

also to many repeats.

You know what I noticed on a lot of the shows..........beautiful design set kitchens.......with gorgeous gleaming pots and pans and cheerful surroundings.....and then a spotless fridge.........perfectly cut up veggies..........and before and after shots........my kitchen last night looked like a disaster area and I was wasted from being on my feet all day making chicken marengo........I even asked my hubby to help me clean up I was so tired

Terrible grammar (do you need to plate UP something? Reduce it DOWN?) Yelling and screaming. I think the hollering is geared to younger men who really wish they were watching a football game. I do like the person hosting the show to be larger than the 2 qt saucepan she's standing behind.

My favorite these days is Ming. Interesting new applications to stuff that is in my pantry, no one yells at me, and some of the others that I like, but do not want to see for a half hour (or more) as guest chefs.

playing in the kitchen and making dinner yesterday I pretended I was making this dinner for someone who'd enjoy the odd flavors. I knew the person I had in mind.
at dinner, my husband asked what was in the meatballs, sauce, carrots and noodles. when I told him all included, he asked how or why I'd choose those ingreds.
I didn't know the answer and he said the name of the chef I was thinking of and that he'd approve. found it funny that we'd both think of the same guy who I'd love to cook for any day.
