The absence of Rachael "I can't even make toast!" Ray suggests she has returned to the dank pit of the abyss from whence she spawned. Either that, or it's default assumed.
Two pages of hate and NOBODY has mentioned Guy Fieri. Granted, he doesn't do a lot of cooking on his "cooking" shows. But he and Sandra Lee are the two FoodTV hosts I cannot sit through. I would rather watch what's on Home Shopping Network than a single minute of Guy Fieri.
Fieri himself may be only marginally less unpleasant than hydrochloric acid exposure (it's itchy!), but Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives is a fairly respectable sort of show. The restaurants feature above-average or unusual food, and he's decent to the owners and staff. Not notably intellectual, but good to watch at 11PM on the treadmill.
I'm sure I'm way behind the times, but Paula Dean would cause me to freeze like a reindeer in highlights, stricken by shock and horror. A woman who has made a name for herself in cooking because she uses a lot of butter, what would France say?
"You should be using higher quality butter. And no processed ingredients!"
