From my friend, Dr. Zibbs, over at That Blue Yak’s website http://thatblueyak.blogspot.com/ wrote an article about some of his favorite cooking shows. Here’s what he has to say. Thought I’d share…
I love to cook and I love to watch cooking shows. Here are a
few random thoughts on cooking shows.
Bobby Flay – makes awesome food and is a great instructor.
I love the Throw down. I really miss Grillin’ and Chillin’ which was one of the first Food TV shows.
The Neely’s – annoy the hell out of me. “Oh yeah baby, put some more sugar on that. Just like you – sweatie”. Shut up!
Emeril makes some great food but his Schtick makes me sick. The only thing worse than, “BAM” is the reaction that the seals in the audience give him when he mentions he’s going to add more garlic. Puuulease. And he better watch it because he’s getting tubby.
Rachel Ray? – I can’t take her anymore.
Alton Brown – I’m almost done with him but his basics of cooking and the science behind cooking keeps me watching. But major nerd.
Guy Fieri – I can’t get enough of the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives Show. He’s got a few new good shows now.
Giada De Laurentis – Pretty likeable. Shows are OK. Is it just me or does she have one of the largest head you’ve ever seen. Pretty sexy though.
Tyler Florence – Excellent. He makes some great stuff.
Aida Mollenkamp – Have no idea when her show is on but she’s a feast for the eyes.
Man Vs Food – This is of my new favorite shows. He goes to various places and tries to breat the record for food intake. Kevin Arnold lookalike?
The Barefoot Contessa – I can’t watch without thinking about her feet. Therefor, I don’t watch.
Gordon Ramsay – He can be a real A-hole but if you can’t stand the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen.
There you go.
The Final Dish: I’d say I agree with most of them but since most of them are my friends, I can’t disclose which ones are or aren’t accurate. What do you think?
