    Default Down Home With The Neelys, Y'all

    It has been a few years since I watched the Food Network, but this
    morning, I watched Down Home With The Neelys. He said the word "y'all"
    over and over, he said it so many times I could not keep count. I think
    he has Paula Deen beat, y'all.


    Do you have a favorite show on the Food Network?

    The only one I watch anymore is Alton Brown, the rest don't appeal to me
    at all.

    I used to like David Rosengarten's show; I think it was called
    "Taste". That should tell you how long it's been since I watched
    the Food Network.

    I watch the food network for the entertainment, when I do watch it.

    One show that has amused me is "Chopped". They bring in 4 'chefs',
    some are real chefs some are chefs in the sense that
    they are the guy who cooks at the firehouse. They give them mystery
    ingredients for three courses. Appetizer, main course,
    and dessert. Appetizer might be something like rhubarb, shrimp and
    graham crackers.....and they give them 30 minutes
    to create a dish. The dishes are judges by pros and one chef is
    'chopped'. You wind up with two people making dessert
    and one winner.

    It's an entertainng show because I try to figure out what kind of dish
    I would make out of the ingredients. Sometimes it's easy
    to compile a recipe and sometimes I just scratch my head. It is fun
    watching people figure it out and then sweat over getting
    it done in 30 minutes.

    You know, they started their Food Network career on Paula's
    show, maybe he's the one who got her started! Heh.

    I don't know about his y'alls but... I love the Neelys! I think they're
    just an adorable cute couple. I wish they lived next door to me.

    I basically jumped ship from the food network in favor of the PBS cooking
    shows. Commercial free gives the chefs time to do more.

    My favorite chefs are (in no particular order):

    Martin Yan, great techniques and a Cheshire cat smile.
    Lidia, Always a genuine pleasure to watch her cook.
    Ming Tsai, hooked me on a ceramic knife. Just a likeable man.
    Steven Raichlen, if he got any more laid back, he'd be in a coma.
    Jacques and Julia, they're great as a pair and individually.

    An honorable mention to America's Test Kitchen. If it wasn't for Chris,
    "the overlord."

    Alton Brown is good too. I check for new shows of his. Most of them are
    for me, repeats.

    No. Of the heavy hitters, Giada, Ina and Michael C are my favorites.
    None of them are appointment television though. Of those not in the
    limelight that 5 Ingredient Fix show and Robin Miller are worth
    watching. I also liked Brian Boitano's show (he has a big
    personality) better than Melissa deArabian's show.

    True Southerners don't say "y'all" hardly a'tall. Paula Dean's shrieking
    voice could shatter glass (as well as eardrums) and her accent is Tennessee
    hicksville, not Georgia by any measure. Phony, phony, phony.

    > Do you have a favorite show on the Food Network?



    Alton Brown. That's all I watch. Every now and then I will watch a few
    minutes of Diners, Dives etc. I get bored after a few minutes though.
    Nothing else is watchable, maybe Iron Chef USA but I have yet to watch a
    full episode. It just has no lasting appeal. Now Tony Bourdain I won't
    miss for nothing. Different channel altogether though, y'all.

    True Southerners?...actually they do say y'all. They just don't make a
    production outta it like she does.
    I even grew up saying "howdy" and it was the norm. But not outside of Texas.

    And in East Texas, Northern Louisiana and Southern Arkansas, people
    really do say things like "Dag nab it" and "Darn" and "Dang" and "Gol
    darn". And they also say "please" and "thank you" and "Sir" and Ma'am"
    a lot more than anyplace I have ever lived.

    That is changing though. Since I've been here, I've taught a bunch of
    them to say "Sonsabitches".

    Alton Brown only. I'd rather see a bunch of Alton and Pepin reruns
    than all the others combined.

    Remember the Italian chef who rendered flat arias while stirring or
    whatever? Turned me off to the whole show, even tho he had some good
    recipes and techniques. He SWORE that the perfect meatloaf baked at
    an oven temp of 365. What WAS his name?

    Chef Rapide wasn't too bad either.

    Grin, depends on the area but the Neely's do over-do it a tad. On Paula
    Deen's accent, it's not coastal Georgia for sure, but tain't too far off the
    western edges. Bit of a twang to it which is missing on the coastal
    versions of the south.

    The main thing I notice is her word choice is odd, while the Neely's is dead
    on other than a bit more apt to use 'Y'all'.

    Favorite watch: Alton Brown.

    True as in not phony baloney. Dean is a Southerner but she puts on an act
    with it.
