    Default Cooking Show Pet Peeves

    OK, so summer is slow. This is a topic I wanted to share/address for a while. While watching cooking shows, there has got to be some other foodies on here who once in a while yell at the screen; whehter it be doing something wrong, mispronouncing an ingredient or history of a dish, whatever. I have many annoyances but will start with these few:

    People who go "MMmmmmm" before the fork/spoon even hit their mouth. Professional "YES" people?

    One more is Rick Bayless rincing off his roasted peppers to get rid of stray seeds or skin. This takes away a lot of grilled flavor, might as well nuke the darn things. (IMHO)

    Steven Raichlin and almost anything he does. Looks like he read something in a magazine and with all the wasted charcoal going off in the background for ambiance, tries to play it off as a BBQ expert...what a hack.

    This thread might flop but hey, at least I tried to give us all something else to bitch about.

    Guy Fieri's mere existence. Does that count?

    Of course it counts, that is what this thread is for. I like him in DDD(and nothing else), but that's me. Bring it on!

    I just hope nobody brings up Anthony Bourdain, love that guy.

    The main cooking show pet peeve I have is when the cook is making something that looks really good and I can't taste it.
    We need to be able to download food.
    Only by living absurdly is it possible to break out of this infinite absurdity.

    Anthony Bourdain is one of my favorite people on the planet. Love his books, and every show he's been on. I even met him once, incredibly nice guy!

    That's more of a full-on hatred than a pet peeve.
