    Had it with the Food Channel...

    I have tried to be patient with the Food Channel but have given up.

    WHY?

    Why do you have to touch your hair while cooking?
    Why do you have on long sleeves-that look like they get into the food?
    When your go to the pantry, why do you put stuff into your armpit, when you can't carry anything else?
    Why do you insist that anything burned is CARMELIZED?
    I watch for the recipes, not the alcoholic drinks.
    Why the faces when you taste your cooking?

    Oh, the one "guy" that really irritates me is the dude with the bleached blonde hair -Fieri- and his Diners program.

    I was watching the tail end of the program and he did something that I found to be so totally friggin gross and rude. HE goes to different tables in the place he is looking at, he talks to the patrons, then picks up a fork/spoon and takes food off of their plates.

    Another thing that gets me going is the double dipping that a host does from the platter of food they have prepared.

    ugh.

    Oh, I don't take it seriously....I just cannot stand it when I am trying to be entertained and notice that she brushes her left hand thru her hair and start to wonder what kind of crusty crap is stuck in her wedding ring...the same ring she plunges into the meat loaf.

    Also, Why do they prune veggies and throw away huge chunks?
    Why do they half arse scrape a mixing bowl, leaving huge amounts of food in it?
    Why call out measurements if you are going to eyeball it?

    --------

    I do like RR, she has the best comedy show on....it's a joke.

    Her made up words, baby talk, trying to land jet aircraft with her hand movements and creepy laughter make her one of the worst.

    I adore Rachel Ray. She has such great ideas and I have learned alot watching her show.

    Just this weekend I was looking for a package of dvds of her show to give my husband for his birthday.

    I was in Jamba Juice the other day....watching the young woman making my smoothie take off her hat and redo (and it took a few attempts) her ponytail.

    Now THAT grosses me out!

    Because they're the Food Network and they can afford to toss out the dregs that any normal person would not. I like it when they tell me what the measurement would be, even if they can estimate it visually. I can't eyeball it, so I need to know how much to measure.

    Rachael Ray is too hyper for me. And I cannot get into Guy Fieri at all. But I like "Unwrapped". And I like the shows where they take one item of food (a hot dog, a pizza, a sandwich) and tell you how it is different between one region of the country and another.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    The one that gets me is Giada de Laurentis. If she shows her Tommy Molars one more time, I'll gag! My son would think I'm being sacrilegious; he feels that anyone that is that hot and can cook is a gift from the gods. I've tried several of her recipes and they are quite good. It's the phony smile about EVERYTHING and the throwing back of her head and laughing when doing something as simple as making a toast that irritates me. That said, I love the Food Channel.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    at our local chinese restaurant -
    one of my friends was there with her family she watched one of the cooks go to the bathroom - not shut the door - give it a little shake and walked out to the kitchen and started cooking again. I had forgotten about it - ordered from there - then she told me all about it and how they had found cockroaches there as well, and it made me so sick - I couldn't eat AND called in the next day!
    I betcha those people that Guy's eating off their plates are well rewarded for allowing him to do that.

    Richard, it sounds like you're addicted to the Food Network just like I am. I've fallen in love with all of them and watched them over and over and over and then.......tore them apart, limb from limb

    Emeril(and others)preach about washing your hands and cooking area when working with chicken, yet, have you noticed how many people use chicken straight from a package without washing it? Are all those meats and veggies they use clean or will the high cooking temps make them safe enough to eat? Is it just me or isn't it proper to wash certain meats?

    Guy Fieri seems to eat enough to kill an elephant and he won't be around much longer with the fat he consumes in just one show I have to say that I do like him though. Giada is a cutie but she can lose the "talking with the hands". Also: she overemphasizes words to the point of practically spitting right into the camera.
    Can we get some new episodes of Iron Chef(probably my favorite)? Maybe some new Throwdowns with Bobby Flay too?

    Those chefographies were so cool. I was really interested to hear their stories.

    Paula Deen at Paula's Party feeds everyone in the audience from the same food/dish, etc. Enough of that already!!
    Did anyone catch the show yesterday where she was doing the brunch for her girlfriends? She made a hamburger with a fried egg and bacon on top, using two glazed donuts as the bun. It was over the top, even for her. Unbelievable!!

    Gotta love it!

    This is a great thread and my favorite topic.

    Emeril fans.....

    I had heard that Lagasse would be leaving TVFN in the near future. The rumor came to me from my nephew. I didnt pay too much attention to it until last week.

    Martha Stewart has purchased the rights to all of his shows, books -I guess the whole Emeril Empire - with the exception of the restaurants he opened.

    Stewart runs the Fine Living Network and may be looking to bulk up her lineup.

    ----------

    The programming on TVFN has baffled me lately.

    The contests always have some commercial tie in....The cake competitions that are held in Disneyland then you have to sit thru the ads about Magic Kingdom's anniversary and the chance to win a night in Walt Disney's bedroom..

    Even the goofy "this Iron Chef timer is brought to you by......" gets me irritated.

    ----------

    The people that feed Fieri get a free dinner and any communicable diseases he may have.

    I also heard that Emeril was bought out by Martha Stewart. I'm not sure what's going on. I have a very good friend that grew up with him in Massachusetts. I need to ask her if she knows the skinny on it

    Does anybody know if Giada is still pregnant? I haven't heard anything.

    Can anybody tell I have a career in watching tv these days?

    There is an article about Giada on the Today Show website. I just saw it yesterday. Go to www.msnbc.com and click on "Today Show". If I remember correctly, her baby is due in April.

    I like the Challenges on Food TV. I am tired of seeing Giada de Laurentis' boobs! The teeth and the fake smile get to me too. Rachael Ray used to dress conservative but she is also now showing half of her boobs. I used to really like Sara Moulton and was sorry they took her off. I guess FoodTV is trying to attract the male audience with their porno show.

    Welcome to the thread....

    You remind me of where this thread has been since it started!


    D&D,

    Crab Meat
    Banana
    Shredded Wheat
    Avocado
    Candied ginger



    Shredded wheat and sliced bananas.

    Avocado, crab meat with a little mayo, chopped veggies and a squirt of hot sauce on toasted rye bread?

    The ginger to fight off the heartburn afterwards?



    I really got hysterical when I thought about how they put together the ingredients for each challenge.

    I can see the 'writer' hanging on the the doors of the cabinet where all the food is stocked. He's obviously 'compromised' with a wicked sense of the MUNCHIES and swaying side to side trying to figure out the steak, Froot Loops, chocolate sauce and string bean connection....


    Oh, the judge, Alex, why is she on there?
    Everything seems to offend her kitchen sensibility-I'd love to watch her cooking-She a real treat, ain't she?

    LOL LOL LOL Good job Richard!! Not all mixed together but ok.
    In the beginning of the show, they give explanations as to what they should do. They can use as little or as much of each ingredient. Why do they always use alot in each dish. Well, almost always.

    Alex G. is probably my least favorite person on the FN. I can't stand her!! She's so full of herself. I hate that show she has too. She gives the word "smug" a new meaning.

    What I despise the most about Giada is when she has guests. I know I keep repeating myself but.......she thinks she's the only person that knows how to cook. She acts even more goofy when someone is there. She's very very arrogant otherwise too. I've seen her on other shows and she keeps that big nose in the air.

    Enough of the cleavage and porn music too.
