Yesterday TV offered very little so I put food network on. The show I got at the time I put it on was the next food network star. All I can say is Heaven help us. 2 of these people said they were culinary instructors, another an unemployed chef, a caterer, another chef and so on. Well the both instructors were the pits . One made a chicken roulllade that was totally raw, the other made something that shall remain simply as a question mark, they need to go to school. Another mixed caramel popcorn with chicken as an entree.The chef worked like a slob. Some had no knife skills at all .However there were 2 girls and one guy who were passable.. The rest should be CHOPPED.( on another station) . I realize that this program hides under the guise of entertainment, but why not just let it be plumbing or carpentry not cooking. Maybe these people can do that better then cook The public deserves better. . Between Big Daddy, The Barefoot Chic, The one who buys everything already made Sandra something ,but she is attractive where are we going. ? There are a number of accomplished chefs on this station , but gradually they are all leaving IE Mario ,Emeril etc. and I don't blame them. The station is simply looking for the next pretty face who can talk while they cook.. And with Flay as a judge? I can't help this rant but it takes years to EARN the title Chef and believe me most of the guys and girls who eearned it paid their dues.. These future stars? I don't know..
