The worst TV to be seen...Emeril,Rachel Ray et al

These talentless millionaire kitchen slobs must all be democrats or are they simply slimy worms with pepper pots?
Do people actually watch these programs? Once was too much for me!
YUCK!
I was amazed they actually show Emeril wiping his nose with the back of his hand before he kneads dough! Blech!

Emeril is the worst

In reply to: The worst TV to be seen...Emeril,Rachel Ray et al

He has NO stage presence and his show is HORRIBLE to watch. Why does he need a band ??? Is he competing with Letterman?

It looks like I'm lucky.

In reply to: The worst TV to be seen...Emeril,Rachel Ray et al

I've not heard of either of them that I can recall.

My culinary skills are limited to "depression food", with a little Oriental, South-of-the-Border, and Italian thrown in.

Thown in pretty well describes my style. Happy

I've not seen Rachel Ray's ...

In reply to: It looks like I'm lucky.

... new "Martha Stewart" like daytime talk show, but I've seen her on Food Network. She does one show where she goes to various places and gets 3 meals for $40/day. We've actually gone to a few of the places when we travel. Her other cooking show is (was?) mostly real food like you describe -- I think you would enjoy her. I'm a bit puzzled at anyone calling her a snob!

well it is the food channel

In reply to: The worst TV to be seen...Emeril,Rachel Ray et al

I have learned quite a bit from watching the cooks. many tips for my peasant fare. several of the guys make manly meals. the fella, alton brown, is sort of a culinary 'mr wizard'(favorite old show of mine). my aunt who is 80 is still trying to figure out how Gianna DeLaurentis stays so skinny making pasta all day. rachel is one gal who has made a remarkable career coming from humble beginnings. her candle is definitely burning at both ends. 30min meals is everyday simple and 40 a day is informative as pointed out.

I have it on when politics and lack of sports prevail, it's harmless background. muzak with food. relax and 'mangiare per vivere e non vivere per mangiare'**


**english equivalent: eat to live and not live to eat

no it's the opinions of wormwoman

In reply to: The worst TV to be seen...Emeril,Rachel Ray et al

in case others were confused by woodworm reference. the OP is about the food channel, not discovery.

according to mary, only waste is persecuted, which produces good soil that helps us grow better flowers and vegetables.

Oh No, here I sit right now watching....

In reply to: The worst TV to be seen...Emeril,Rachel Ray et al

Rachel Ray. She's a hoot! She sounds like she's from the Maryland area
with a NY gesture's overlay added in. Her voice can be a bit irritating at
times, but her enthusiasm is great! She can come cook at my place anyday.

she is from upstate ny

In reply to: Oh No, here I sit right now watching....

see, there is more to life than food.

Her accent is ....

In reply to: she is from upstate ny

....more like a mid atlantic variety. I'll have to search and see if
she just moved there later and was raised closer to Mason-Dixon line.

You're right

In reply to: Her accent is ....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rachael_Ray

Odd that she sounds so much like people here in Maryland, except for the
more obvious New York'isms. The upper state NY accent must be different
than the city one.

Yes ...

... upstate NY ... indeed not very far upstate vs. the city/metro area are like night and day.

far from the boroughs and LI.

I know more about her than my next door neighbor

In reply to: she has said her dad was a cajun

probably more than my new congressman. tv is a strange land.

quite a few french settled in the upstate area, my SIL's dad for one, that might explain RR's accent.

'The Acadians were French
settlers of eastern Canada
who were exiled from their
land in the 1750s. The
Cajuns are their descendants
who settled in Louisiana.
Today, thousands of
Acadian-Cajun descendants
cherish their rich legacy of
history and genealogy.'--from google

Being from that area...

In reply to: I know more about her than my next door neighbor

Being from the Louisiana neck of the woods, I always thought that Cajun was the corrupted pronounciation of Acadian that evolved as time rolled on.
