anyone remember old cooking show

Can anyone remember old cooking show that starred a older man and younger lady. It was funny show because lady couldn't cook good. If I remember correctly the man was somehow involved or owner of Winnebego or another rv business.

    1. I was going to guess Romagnoli's Kitchen in the 70s where by the end of the show Franco Romagnoli had sipped more than his share of the cooking wine. But Margareit (ms?) was a pretty decent cook as I recall.
      But maybe you're thinking of Nick Stellino.

      1. that sounds exactly like rachael ray, only there was no older man.

        1. i remember that show and wish i knew the name of it! he would treat her like an air head, and she totally acted like one. nothing they made looked edible but it was pretty entertaining anyway. god what was the name....dammit.

          1. Until you referenced the Winnebago it reminded me of How to Boil Water on the early FoodTV days. They had a couple of male knowledgeable chefs and beginner blond ditzy ladies...

              I remember that show!! I used to love watching it.

            2. I posted this question a couple of days ago but thought to re-post here:

              Does anyone remember these 2 Mennonite ladies that had their own show, back in the day. This was a time there were only a few chef on TV like Jeffrey Smith, Yan Can Cook, and the Cajun guy, Justin Wilson. It may have been a combined crafts and cooking show. I remember a recipe for a baked "fried chicken" recipe that included marjoram, flour and butter. If someone can remind me or find me that recipe... I can relive aspects of my childhood which was as a foreign child in the inner city. And yet, I loved these ladies. Please help???????????

              1. Are you referring to At Home on the Range starring the late John Crean and Barbara Venezia?? Fits your description:)

                  Meltemi got her answer on another thread she started re: this. Something along the lines of "Amish Cooking in Quilt Country", I believe.

                    That was Marcia Adams - not relatively young and no older man.

                2. Except for the Winnebego, it sounds like Jacques Pepin and his daughter. ;-)
