Viewer Pet Peeves
A few things on certain cooking programs that I really like bug me so much that I always change the channel. At the top of the list ... drum roll please ... Lidia Bastianich's daughter. The woman has neither personality nor talent. And it's a cooking show!!!!!! Not an art history/tour of European museums show. Just hand me the remote.
What makes you turn the channel when you're watching a food program that you generally like and would otherwise continue watching?
Lidia's daughter doesn't bother me that much either. What really bothers me with ANY cooking show is when the host/hostess/chef/pretendchef....takes a bite of the food....and....does the eyeroll thing and makes that face as though they are having an orgasmic experience....and the bite of food is more of an ort than an actual human bite of the food. Oy. Drives me up a wall!
"And it's a cooking show!!!!!! Not an art history/tour of European museums show. "
Yes, it is a cooking show but Lidia has always said that it is also a bit travelogue and history lesson as well.
