^^^ i agree with a lot of your points. clearly the neely's and the cooking for real chick were just hired because of the criticism that the food network was too white. i'm sure that if they tried they could've found nonwhite who had more talent and tv presence that those. i like secrets of a restaurant chef in theory, but some of anne's mannerisms/inflections make her too hard too watch. used to like tyler but have seen him in real life and he annoys me, so that has influenced my opinion of his show.
i would like to see food network come up with a show where they feature meals that normal people can make that are from scratch, healthy, and relatively quick. kind of like 30 minute meals but edible and not gross.
B. Smith - Whatever You Do, Do It With Style), but with her dreads and upper-class manners, TPTB at FN were probably too threatened by all of her fabulousness. She had a show on BET for a while, but that network has become a joke too. B. Smith is fierce, probably too fierce for the likes of the Food Network.
I was majorly disappointed with TFNS winner Aaron McCargo's show, Big Daddy's House. The food is so mediocre. The same with Sunny Anderson - and I HATE her fake-looking weave!!!!!! And her constant giggling.
I don't know the dirt on Tyler - do tell. I'll take him over Anne - she looks like Guy Fieri's baby sister.i like secrets of a restaurant chef in theory, but some of anne's mannerisms/inflections make her too hard too watch. used to like tyler but have seen him in real life and he annoys me, so that has influenced my opinion of his show.
The CEO, Brooke Johnson, admitted that she's trying to cater to a wider audience, who might find even instructional cooking too hoity-toity for them. They get off on Sandra and Rachael and Giada (enough with the breasts, already), and relate to Guy's douchebag-ness.i would like to see food network come up with a show where they feature meals that normal people can make that are from scratch, healthy, and relatively quick. kind of like 30 minute meals but edible and not gross.
^^^ i don't really have dirt on tyler but he is a local and i see him pretty frequently. almost ran me off the road several times while i was pushing a baby stroller, he drives like a drunk. that's enough of a reason to hate him. and he and his portly wife walk around like they are up here and you are down there (a la kelly b).
and i agree with you about b smith, she would have been better than those that food network picked. i've seen an old version of her cooking show and she had a good tv presence.
I don't think they want smart folks on their network - look what they did to Sara Moulton....and i agree with you about b smith, she would have been better than those that food network picked. i've seen an old version of her cooking show and she had a good tv presence.
^^^ oooh, i like sara moulton. i would agree that her show wasn't the best but it seemed like with a better format she could've done well. was sorry to see her go.
The Neely's annoy me to no end. I can't get down with calling my husband "Daddy", and I really think it has no place in the kitchen to begin with. It's too sappy sweet. I have been waiting for them to announce they really hate each either and are getting divorced.
I don't care for Tyler either. His recipes look like crap, he's sloppy, he acts like he's sniffed an 8 ball before taking the stage, and he just rambles.
I like Alton, I think he's really intelligent and probably the only really properly trained chef on the whole network.
Bobby Flay, well I just can't decide. I don't really care for his recipes. He just like throwing random stuff together...plus, I think he's probably an ass in real life.
I like Bobby Flay. He actually cringes & is kind of embarressed when he wins a showdown. My fav is the Wedding Cake one-he knew he couldn't win,but he gave it his best shot & it looked pretty good! He lost proudly!

That was some nasty-assed shit, word. Had to throw it out. I've pretty much despised her ever since.
was it a chicken and apricot tajine? mmmm delicious. if it's well made. i have no idea what rachael's recipe looked like. i never watch her, i find her to be completely fucking obnoxious.
