    I hate her cutesy ways "Yummo" and "Sammies" and "Stoup." Please, give us a break from this baby talk.

    Giada DeLaurentis. Every woman and young girl I know (and a telemarketer that I talked to once) can't stand her or her show. Pet peeves:
    1.) Porn music
    2.) 4 inch cleavage unnecessary for a cooking show
    3.) Porn sounds when stirring food
    4.) Camera lense makes her head huge and her body tiny. Wierd.
    5.) "Creamy and delicious"
    6.) the big one - stop pronouncing only certain food words with your stupid Italian pronounciation!! It bugs EVERYONE WHO WATCHES.
    7.) Quit referring to your honey "Todd"

    I totally agree with you both. My pet peeves with Giada are the sounds of stirring and cutting AND her smile. Her smile seems so fake and its and "over done" smile. I dont know why the sounds of the stirring and cutting bugs me.

    I remember when I did my work experience at Asda I was working in the bakery and I dropped a cookie on the floor. I went to put it in the bin but one of the workers took it off me, shook it, and put it in the box and just gave me a wink and said 'what they don't know won't hurt them!'

    At the time I was like ewww but I still eat from the bakery, hell it tastes good and it won't kill me!

    I like Giada. I love her show and watch it every night. Can't say that I've ever really noticed the music [maybe because my son always has his horrible rock cd's pounding away in the background!]. Her pronunciations have never bothered me - I think she grew up speaking Italian, so it would be normal for her to pronounce Italian words in an Italian way. I hear she has a new cookbook coming out soon. I am looking forward to reading it.

    I like Giada too but I can totally see all the pet peeves, the pron music that is so funny and I always thought the cleavage was so unnecessary, I just assumed it was because she grew up in L.A. Anyway I can't stand that Sandra Lee chracter, she is so annoying I hate how her outfit matches her curtains, plates, cups, pans, table cloth, everything in the background, she is just such a phony.

    Oh, I hate that Sandra Lee! Her food looks so nasty, and is full of fat and preservatives. Everything starts out with some awful mix or canned crap. And that matchy-matchy thing is absurd. No, my mixer doesn't match my kitchen curtins.

    OMG thank you! You took the words right out of my mouth! Her Italian enunciation is incredibly overdramatic and annoying.

    I love to watch Sandra Lee. True, she doesn't make many low fat or healthy meals, but I like how she incorporates ingredients that speed up the process.
    I do have to admit the mathching everything does get old, but she comes up with some great ideas for the 'tablescapes'...
    I don't watch Gaida much, she cooks so much with cheese and things that I don't eat, so I don't watch...RR-she rocks, though!!

    lol. The restaurant I worked in was clean enough. The grill cooks and kitchen guys always had a greasy look to them, with stained, oily aprons, but hand washing was drilled into everyone's head constantly.

    I worked at Bob Evan's, so not some 5 start restaurant, but food safety and cleanliness was a priority. I ate there during my breaks or after my shifts all the time.

    a lady who REALLY bugs me is that chick on 'Good Food Fast'. I can't think of her name but she's some food editor from Family Circle magazine or something. When she's cutting food she always hunches over and makes it look like she's using tremendous force to cut a carrot or tomato or anything! She does these super annoying hand gestures ALL the time. it's so aggravating! o yea her name is Ceci Carmichael. if you don't know which lady i'm talking about watch that show. you'll want to smack her through the tv!!

    I hate Mario Batali . When he pronounces anything in Italian, it sounds so fake and like he's trying too hard to be authentic. And what peeved me the most was that he was using crappy pots and pans on his show e.g. aluminum pot and some cheap looking teflon frying pan...

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    My bf use to work in a restaurant and the chefs use to throw spuds at each other and then use them for mash

    UI prefer to eat at restaurants where there is a big gap into the kitchen so you can wath them cooking.
