I totally LOVE Tony Bourdain from 'A Cooks Tour'. He kinda looks like a young Elliot Gould, but way way cuter. I could spend any day in the kitchen cookin' with him!
Cant stand the 'Bam Man' :phhht
would rather be cruising!
LOVE unwrapped - it's very interesting to me to find out about stuff like where Candy Corn comes from It's one of those shows I watch every time I see it's on!
I do enjoy Everyday Italian, but I swear it's the soft porn of food shows. Besides her low cut shirts, the BCBB music in the background makes my husband go nuts. Suddenly he doesn't mind that I'm Tivo'ing something new I think she has great ideas though.
I also love watching the Food Network, and I find Tyler Florence a very attractive chef. (I have been trying to come up with something he could come to my house and help me prepare for 911. )
One of my favorite shows is Barefoot Contessa (I also own some of her cookbooks and they are great), Paula Dean, and sometimes Alton Brown.
I really can't stand Rachel Ray but for some reason I can't stop watching $40 a Day, she just embarrasses herself so much I can's stop watching it. I also really wish they would show less of Emeril, can't really stand his show.
I loooove Paula Deen. Love, love, love that woman I tell ya. She and my mother could be separated at birth personality wise. While I value my health far too much to actually make any of her recipes regularly, I never miss a show. She is a hoot and a half and her little idiosyncrasies are hysterical to watch. A typical show goes something like this:
'Okay y'all now take yur spatchler and 5 pounds of butter, mix together, add some here of this cream cheese, 6 cups of suger, place the whole mess in the deep fryer and add a (huge) dollop of whipped cream and (heavy breathing as she goes in for the kill) OUT OF THIS WORLD!
I have got to make a trip down to Savannah just to see this woman in action.
"Amish In The City"
Haha I agree with you about Tyler Florence..I started watching his show a couple years back when I was like 16...I thought very highly of him after I saw how fun his shows are and how great his personality is! He doesn't make anyone feel "stupid" when they ask for his help...we both need to help each other come up with recipes so Mr. Florence can help us!

Sandra Lee from the "Semi-Homemade Cooking" show, looks exactly like Joely Richardson from "Nip/Tuck." For some reason, once I realized that, I got more interested in watching the Semi-Homemade show.
Trouble in my life
I do believe she comes off as a little toooooo PERKY!

I HATE that!!! No chops = no respect.
I tried not to hate Rachel because my sister-in-law likes her and I was trying really hard not to be so irritated by my SIL, but Rachel is an annoying little troll (Hubby's word). I can't imagine anyone spending such a large sum as $40 a day -- anyone could find cool places to eat with that much money. And on the 30-minute program I already know all of her "advice."
I don't like Emeril's new set. When he starts squeaking (can't really find the word for it, but you'll know it if you hear it), it irks me.
Are they still producing that show? I saw a couple episodes and loved them but could not find more. He is so funny, in the Woody Allen vein but more attractive. I just laughed and laughed. Did you read his book? It explained a lot about restaurant workers' attitudes.

I like Paula Deen a lot. But your Martha Stewart comment in this paragraph is what piqued my attention. I've only been watching the Food Network for about a year or so, so not familiar with everyone who's ever had a show there. Did Martha Stewart have her own show on the channel at one time? If so, thank god I was fortunate enough to miss anything she's in. Please tell me she's not going to be on the Food Network now -- I have enough to do to make sure I don't accidentally see her mug on her version of the Apprentice by accident.

The thing with Rachel Ray - besides the perkiness, which is just too much - like a puppy finding out it has a tail, is that for 40$ a day which yes, is a lot (I do 15 in Manhattan and eat darn well - that's eating out for all three meals) she leaves like, a total of $1 dollar tip, or something like that.
i also hate her "uhmmmmmm, that is so good, yum" type deelio that she does. Annoys the hell out of me.
She's good with the kids though, and did like that program where she made lemonade with them - She's a barney w/out the purple suit.
