As someone who loves watching cooking shows, this has always been one of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to cooking on television. I mean, why waste the guests' time bringing them on your show to do a cooking segment, when all you're allow them is two minutes to throw ingredients into a bowl so that they can, 'through the magic of television" TA-DA! pull the "finished" product out of an oven? Not to mention these segments are usually filled with the show's host over talking and interrupting the cook / chef as s/he tries to explain the process of preparing a recipe. Absolutely grates me to to the core.
