We just wrapped a 4 day shoot for a national consumer magazine. Every single recipe we prepared for these photo/recipe spreads used some sort of instant, boxed food product!!! They all looked and tasted like dookie! Why do American cooks think that to make a quick dinner one must open a box full of salt, food coloring and artificial flavors? Yuck! We even had to use INSTANT RICE! Come on, how hard is it to cook rice? Water-rice-salt-boil-simmer-DONE! Prepackaged-precooked baked potatoes!! My god, we had to make "paella" with Rice-a-Roni!! Trifle with instant vanilla pudding! You know what's wrong with the world? -people eat **** ! **** in--**** out!! No surprise there! A horse eats better than the average American. Sorry guys, just had to vent.
