Neighborhood Kitchens, a PBS  WGBH production will start its season 2 today:

 

 

http://www.wgbh.org/...South-End-37978

 

you can see these on line if you like.  I have not seen todays ep. yet so cant say if they have improved the show or not.

 

for me its fun to see local restaurants, but I think the show in the past would be much better if the hostess knew a little more about cooking.

 

for me its good to see a few of my Tax Dollars  ( 15 Apr coming up ) being returned to the Community.

 

OK, 50 cents or so.

Rotuts, thanks for reminding me of this show. I watch little tv and lost track of it.  The first few episodes were pretty good but I agree with you about the hostess.

 

Also sad that local station WGBH doesn't know the difference between South Boston and the South End neighborhoods--your link to the first espisode featuring Myers & Chang  places the restaurant in both of them (it's in the South End).  Semantics unless you actually want to find the place.  It's good, too, I've been a couple of times.

this was one of their best shows: take a peak as how the Chef makes the dumplings!\

 

I agree that the PBS as an institution has lost its way:  why not pay attention to your local area?

 

Beets me!   they also delete various cooking show, including local ones  ( Simply MIng ) for their Pledge week when why not

 

put them on their own Hard Disks and not lose a show for their Pledge Weeks?

 

Julia would be ...............   for what PBS has become.

 

45 cents here!
