has anyone seen the new show called the kitchen?
any thoughts on it?
I think when "The Chew" debuted, NOBODY thought it would last. I don't get to see it iften (comes on at 1pm) but enjoy it... other than Michael Symon's ANNOYING cackle/laugh. Think "The Kitchen" might have come about cuz of TCs success??
I record it every week. I think FN finally tapped into how people are using new media for food. Last week they had a What's App segment (yes, the puns run riotous on this show - though I'd think WhatsApp might not appreciate this particular usage) and I like that they introduced apps that I’d never thought I might use.
The hosts: Geoffrey Zakarian is there to lend credence and gravitas. Jeff Mauro is the comedy relief. Both succeed admirably in their roles. Sunny Anderson is informative when she is in a two-shot, but when she’s with the whole group she tends to shout. A lot. Katie Lee lends the home cook’s perspective. It’s actually refreshing.
Sadly, I have to mute my TV every time she’s on. Her voice is so grating I can’t listen to her. I hope Food Network, or maybe Katie herself takes the initiative to get her a voice coach. She just needs to modulate her voice and she’d be really watchable.
I like this take on how people are using TV, food apps and the Internet to enrich their foodie lives.
I've watched for 3 weeks now. 8 am Saturday morning for me, so it's a good time to have some breakfast in front of the tube. The person who really bugs me is Katie Lee. Her voice is beyond grating. An I have never been big on Jeff Mauro. I can't put my finger on why. Sunny and Marcella are the stars here, though I do wish Sunny could quiet down. It might go the way of The Chew and grow into a decent show. Time will tell...
