Yes, the network has changed. It has changed to draw a larger group of viewers that care about food. They have to make money to stay on the air.
I'll agree with most
of that. I think the network has changed to draw a larger market that doesn't
necessarily care about food, hence the cook-offs and reality type/who's gonna be the next star shows.
I'm a fan of any show that doesn't pull out four fresh herbs and a bunch of smoked meat ingredients I can't spell
Most of the 30 Minute Meals use "everyday" ingredients, half of Emeril's shows, earlier Bobby Flay......
If I hear one more person say, "Zest of a lemon"
Shoot, if I kept a lemon in the fridge until I came across a recipe asking for that, it would look like a spongy lime
