    Default Bad Chef....bad...bad....bad....

    I've noticed a new trend on the Food Network.

    The "host/chef" usually male,
    wearing a flashy wristwatch, with a metal bracelet.

    You can imagine how much crud and critters
    will take residence in the links and crevices.
    Darn near impossible to clean, and to keep clean.

    Many feel that even rings would cross-contaminate food.

    I wanted to write to FoodNetwork,
    but couldn't find a ( contact us ) eMail address......

    Is that network still on? I doubt it would matter to them because they
    have pretty much morphed into an entertainment channel with little
    practical value.

    But if you want to try they have a contact form:

    When Paula Deen was new and an unknown, she would take off rings when
    cooking. But now that she is PAULA DEEN, she cooks and mixes with her rings
    on. I used to really enjoy watching her show, but now she is a character.
    The old cooking shows were informative and entertaining, but now she is too
    busy being a southern belle.

    YOU should have seen here back in the days when Paula Deen was a
    nobody. She ran around like Savannah's original Southern Belle.
    I remember her back in the 70's with her "That Girl" bubble flip that
    was bigger than a fifty gallon galvanized bucket. She was sumthin'
    else.

    FN and HGTV are *not* easy to contact, that's for sure.

    Don't you find yourself staring at a ring (doesn't have to be Paula
    Deen's) and wondering when it's going to get dirty?

    I have never been to Savannah, but have always wanted to visit. The
    antibelum is reputed to be fantastic. I hear that the old cemetery is
    beautiful. My partner has NO interest in visitng there. WELL, guess what, a
    friend and I will be visiting Savannah in late May. I am really looking
    forward to it. Any suggestions for sights to see, etc. We will not have a
    lot of time, probably one day. Is Lady and Sons worth the effort to have
    lunch or dinner? Do you have any other suggestions for a good, moderate
    priced restaurant? We usually eat a large lunch or a large dinner, but not
    both.

    I really do like Paula Deen, it is just that she is sort of irritating at
    times. Bobby is my favorite of the Deens.

    One of the fortunate ones here...I can walk in the front door. Did

    I haven't been there in four years. One thing you can check is
    www. urbanspoon.com The locals will guide you as to where to
    dine.

    I have heard that the lines are long at Lady and Sons...I have never
    eaten at their restaurant.

    I'm not familiar with that show. Are you an employee or live/work
    nearby?

    I wouldn't waste my time on Paula Deen's restaurant after the one time
    I ate there. Overpriced cafeteria style food. I can get *that* stuff
    anyplace and at home. I don't go out to eat homestyle foods, I go out to
    eat special things, or things that are complicated to make or that I
    can't do. I think people (and the busses of tourits) go there now just
    in hopes of seeing a celebrity.
    How much friend chicken, boiled cabbage, macaroni and cheese do you
    like? Saddle up to the trough there and you can have all you want. Ugh.
    If you want that kind of food-just go to a Cracker Barrel. Same.

    Shelly Mangrum, Miss Tennessee 1984, hosted a show at HGTV here in
    Knoxville back in the 80's into the 90's. It was called Club Dance
    coming from the White Horse Saloon....(just a TV set, not a real
    "bar"). It was a country western version of Dick Clark's American
    Bandstand.

    Shows were filmed on Friday and Saturday night. They would do two
    shows each night....1-9p and 10-12p. You had to bring two or three
    different "costumes" and change between filming. They would film an
    entire season in six or seven weekends. It was all packaged and
    produced to appear as a daily show. They welcomed people to come
    and dance. It was a fun time.

    It's so common isn't it. We have one local cook here (Southwestern food)
    who used to have a show on PBS. She always cooked wearing an arm- and
    handful of jewellery. That is so revolting!

    From what I can tell, Paula Deen is a warm, wonderful lady, and her
    coworkers at the Food Network seem to adore her. But I can't stand her
    accent. It would drive me up the wall to be in the same room with her for
    more than two minutes. The word "four" should only have ONE syllable.

    - Alton Brown usually dons latex gloves before putting his hands into food.

    - Guy Fieri makes a point of "de-blinging" before he starts cooking.

    - I've never seen Bobby Flay wearing jewelry with crevices when he's
    cooking. (Maybe I just didn't notice; I don't watch him all that often.)

    - A wristwatch would probably only be problematic if you were making
    meatloaf, stuffing poultry larger than squab, or stuffing a whole fish. I
    don't see it as a problem if you're chopping vegetables or searing a steak.

    Oh, hon, now you know that is the reason I watch her shows. Most of what
    she cooks I could have learnt from Aunt Myrt or Aunt Florrie, or Aunt
    Mossie, but I just need my fix of 'normal' talk after all the Pennsylvania
    Dutchmen I am surrounded by. Where, dadgum it, the tea is so sweet it rots
    your teeth but you dassn't pour perfect good maple syrup on Aunt Bessie's
    pot roast.

    BTW, everyone should know that "4" is pronounced "fo-uh'.

    Every time Cat is on Iron Chef, her "wedding" rings are really
    conspicuous. I don't get it, myself - what's the purpose? However,
    rings are easier to clean than watches, for sure.

    Probably to show that she considers herself married. I think that's the
    usual reason.

    In 50 years+ of cooking I've never got my watch into the food. I take off
    rings, but the watch?
