I have been watching cooking shows all my life.
I love them.
They're on every TV in every room, all day long.
The thing that I often times notice that I can't quite understand, but annoys me no end is... :x
Using too small of a bowl to mix (whatever) in.
If they're making a tossed salad, the bowl is too small.
If stuffing is being assembled, the bowl is too small.
If they're combining ingredients for a meatloaf, the bowl is too small.
If they're doing cookie dough, the bowl is too small.
If they're making pasta sauce, the bowl is too small.
If it's mealballs, and all the ingredients go in, the bowl is too small.
What's with the small bowls? Do they not know in advance that 'that' bowl is going to overflow and there isn't going to be room for proper mixing?
My answer is, they (TV chef types or their stations) can't afford large bowls and one size fits all.
Oh gosh, feels good to have finally gotten that off my chest. It's been eating me up for hundreds of years now. :roll:
