Dave Pressley Posted March 3, 2008 Share Posted March 3, 2008 I found myself at home much of this past weekend (definitely not the norm) and while I was often cleaning, cooking or playing with my kid, I had the Food Network on in the background. There were exactly two times when I had to turn around after something caught my ear and rewind the DVR to hear some moronic "expert" say something so stupid, it made me want to jump into the TV set and punch them so hard in the throat so as to collapse their voicebox and prevent them from ever speaking again. A lot of people obviously watch food being prepared on TV by a lot of personalities. A select few of them are professional chefs who are well-researched. Some of them smile WAY too much. Some of them wear nothing but bowling shirts and pronounce every single piece of food they shove into their face "The Absolute Best Thing I've Ever Eaten". On to the things I heard that bothered me: "Cold water boils faster than hot water."- Bobby Flay (Really? Want to bet your restaurant empire on that piece of info?) ...and when asked what exactly the definition of fish sauce was, the spiky haired dipstick, Guy Fieri, authoritatively replied that "fish sauce is that old bottle in the back of everyone's pantry that nobody uses, but it's really good stuff". I think I'm officially done with this channel (except for Iron Chef). I need to save my anger for other things, like opening new DVD's and road rage.
