    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.

    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.

    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.
