I know I watch too many cooking shows because

Sunday, October 27, 2013



Because the phrase "too many cooking shows" sounds like a major oxymoron to me.

Because I can do the play-by-play on Iron Chef America right along with Alton Brown.

Because I play along with Chopped. Unless durian fruit or liver shows up in the basket. Those I'll sit out.

Because I actually know what chiffonade, brunoise and julienne mean.

Because in the kitchen I carefully establish my mise-en-place -- to make toast.

Because Chopped judges have started popping up in my dreams. In one Geoffrey Zacarian was a semi-evil wizard (but only semi-evil). And in another, a different judge who shall remain nameless proved out to be a wicked good kisser.

Because movie stars bore me to tears but chefs rev my motor.

Because I'd rather browse cookware than shoes (and yes, I AM sure I'm a woman).

    A friend of mine who lives in Vegas has had the cable company come out to his house twice, because something is messing with his being able to get his cooking shows on the East coast feed as well as the West coast feed. I think you two would be neck and neck. emoticon

    We all have our favorites - I love the cooking shows and so does my son - even when he tries stuff and it doesn't work out - we enjoy the gamesmanship of them

    Ya gotta follow your bliss, and frankly, some of your "guys" would make me blissful even if they didn't cook at all. It's not always the food that's making us salivate, ya know?

I'm sure there were people who told Michelangelo to "put down that stupid chisel and go do something useful" or demanded that Beethoven "stop that infernal racket and go help your Mother set the table." How fortunate we are that they didn't listen. You have a gift too: turning simple ingredients into delicious foods that feed the soul as well as the body.
I do believe the angels would weep if you didn't make the most of your talent.

    There's so much to learn on the cooking show. Sure wish they would do a few healthy cooking shows, too.

    Great blog LADYIRISH,

I love to cook too and know most of the terms you mentioned. I sadly cut back on the number of cooking show I watched, because I would always get too hungry and cook to high calorie dishes. I was telling someone the other day that I love to start a lot of my dishes with a "mirepoix" and they just stared at me with a lost look. I thought that was a common term. lol

Have a great rest of your weekend!

Hugs,
Jane
