Here are a few Food Network-related tidbits:
- Rachael Ray claims she knows what it's like to be you. From the article:
The promise [of a 30 minute meal] is a siren song to anyone arriving home hungry at 6 p.m., to novices cowed by Emeril Lagasse's restaurant creations, to women who think Giada De Laurentiis and Sandra Lee are too thin to be teaching them how to cook.
- I don't really have a horse in this race, but let me just say that believe that good cooks can be thin1, bad cooks can be fat, and no one should be intimidated by the creations on Emeril Live. At any rate, at least check out the photo of Rachael.
- What do Sandra Lee, Rocco Dispirito, Whole Foods and Stella McCartney have in common? They all support a boycott of Canadian seafood due to a controversial annual seal hunt.
- Here's a fun Q&A with Paula Deen2. You want to meet Paula as much as I do? Bid on a trip to visit Savannah and Paula!
1The exception to this is Low Carb and Lovin' It. I saw a few episodes of this and I was hatin' it. First, I think the guy is unbelieveably creepy. Second, he looks really unhealthy. Last, his food is gross.
2I think USA Today's Pop Candy blog is the best mainstream media-affiliated blog out there. She's a good writer, she scores the best interviews and she's a must-read for celebrity gossip scoops. Add it to your newsreader!
