FN - Deliscio (sic) What is this?

jfood Feb 1, 2008 03:53 PM

Jfood clicked onto FN this evening and there was a show named Deliscio, he thinks. It reminded jfood of a SNL take-off of Giada. Yet FN does not show this on their sight.

Anyone else see this? It was horrible.

      Simply Delicioso is a newish FN show (practically a copy of Giada's IMO) that was pretty heavily promoted last year when it began. I forget the name of the host, but I am sure I have seen her elsewhere (the Today Show, maybe?). Focus is on Latin cuisines.

        Here's the FN scoop on Ingrid Hoffman:

        and a somewhat recent CH thread on her show:

        She's the hispanic Rachael Ray. Avert your gaze and you'll be fine.

          we watched about 5 minutes of it today..waiting for another show to begin. We noticed her accent comes and goes. Interesting.

            It is truly ridiculous. She is terrible. And I love salsa music, but not for 30 minutes straight during onion close-ups and whatnot.
