    Good Eats!

    I like the fact that Alton doesnt just prepare the food; he educates you about ingredients, techniques and equipment. You dont just learn how to make a specific dish, you learn how the ingredients effect the out come, special tips and tricks that make the job easier/better/faster, and you learn what to look for when you're buying kitchen tools and equipment.

    I used to like Emril Live, but I'm tired of all his self congratulations, bamming, humming, and "oh yeah babe." The Essence of Emril is much easier to take. I like Good Eats when it is a topic other than desserts. I also like Food 911 and How to Boil Water.

    Giada never struck me as Hit'able. She seems like one of those types that never slows down long enough.


    A couple bottles of wine perhaps.

    Barefoot Contessa is great! Giada does always have her t*ts hanging out, doesn't she? Maybe that's what makes her "hit'able." LoL.

    Unwrapped is probably my favorite. I like Paula Deen and Emeril, too.

    I love Good Eats (have most of the DVD's)

    I like Molto Mario a lot too. I think it's interesting how much knowledge he has/shares about the whole region where a dish comes from without coming across as a know-it-all. The only thing I don't like is it always seems to be over too fast.

    Boy Meets Grill is ok. I LOVE most of the recipes I've tried from Bobby Flay.

    Unwrapped is most always interesting

    Paula Dean makes me laugh. She reminds me of a nice southern grandma.

    I usually enjoy the reicpes that Tyler Florence brings to help the people on Food 911

    Barefoot Contessa is good. Ina is always so soft spoken it makes me relax haha.

    I started off thinking Rachael Ray was a little grating...but the idea of some quick 30 minute meals got me to watch, and now I don't mind the show at all... and must admit I find her to be a little attractive (especially on any episode with her hair pulled back) haha... don't ask me... I don't know when the switch happened.

    Semi-Homemade is ok sometimes... sometimes blah.

    Giata...something doesn't click with me. Neither does Michael Ciarello.

    I started watching when Emeril was on his BAM kick and like said above all the theatrics on Emeril Live (which are the same every show) turn me off VERY quickly. Now he hums this really high piched hum a lot. And the whole applause or wow light effect bugs me. Every time he says something like "garlic" you can tell the applause light comes on...seems like anyway... I've watched Essence of Emril a few times and kind of enjoy it.

    Can you tell which channel I have on as background any time I am home working around the house? (I also do all the cooking at home).

    I've had some funny looks on neighbors faces when I'm working out in the garage and they walk up and see I'm watching Paula Dean or something like that :rollsmiley: ... maybe when I'm out there I should turn on the game...or Spike TV :supergrin:

    :cheers:

    I can't watch it too much... however having said that... I can't WAIT until Stephen (sp?) goes down!!! His high and mighty attitude bugs me. I hope the dark haired serious guy (Howard? Something like that) wins (haven't watched in weeks so hopefully I'm not missing out or rooting for the guy who screwed up already....they both seemed like they're going to make it to some of the final rounds)

    I have caught all of the "Next Food Network Star" episodes.

    I like Easy Entertaining with Michael Chiarello.

    I don't like how he talks with his hands so much, it's distracting.
