I own every Bourdain book available.

Truly he tells it like it is. Now his kitchen stuff is great. His novel writing could put anyone to sleep.

Still I like the way he talks in your face with no recourse.

Yeah... easy to talk to someone behind their back. I'd like to see Tony on a matchup with one of the ones he slammed.

What?

I do like Tony.
His shows traveling the world and eating stuff like snake butts and frog ears are really entertaining to me.
BUT, I would like to see Sandra and Gaida , uh, uh, uh, well maybe cook something TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!!
He's right about most of them. They could not cook their way into a kichen.
They are there because they produce ratings from people watching with nothing better to do. Like me sometimes. I have NEVER used ONE recipe I have seen any of them do.
How about that MONSTER IN THE KITCHEN Barefoot Conseca or whatever they call her. Now where in the world did they find that really choice dish????
I just like the, the , the, well you know, Giada and Sandr Lee's, uh, wardrobe. Yes, that's it, their wardrobes!!!!!
Whew, I feel better now.
Where's the Aspirin? Aspirin, where's the Whiskey???
PARTY!!!!!!!!!!!
Smoke On!!!!!!

"SANDRA LEE: Pure evil. This frightening Hell Spawn of Kathie Lee and Betty Crocker seems on a mission to kill her fans, one meal at a time."

I laughed myself good.

I like Alton Brown, well at least I've gotten some good information from him. His humor isn't the best but I like the show and have used several recipies he has put on his show.

That is pretty harsh. Just because she isn't a starving anorexic waif doesn't mean she is a monster.

She owned and ran the Barefoot Contessa store for 18 years. Very successfully. Her books are credited with being some of the best in the world.
Her recipes are bang on and they are very good.
