Israel Story: In the Movies
A Minute to Myself (90)

Cooking Shows

Can someone explain to me why I have to watch someone wash her hands? Why do the cooking show cooks have us watch them wash their hands? And, in fact, most of them are merely rinsing their hands, and not washing.

Do we need to show them how it's done properly? It could be an "ask the viewers" program where we would teach the experts such kitchen basics as: wash your hands with soap not just water; wear old clothes and not your dressy cleavage-exposing clothes that you don't want to get dirty; multi-tasking in the kitchen (cook, talk to children, listen to the radio, and plan what to do the second you finish cooking); and that old standby: redesigning leftovers.




Absolutely. Please, less human breast with the chicken!


Hahaha laura, however did we see you wash your hands in the movie carrying your sweets?

I love you had one up on the in-laws by your movie career.

Christine: At least the boy chefs aren't wearing unbuttoning their buttons.

Wilma: This was a PG movie, I only carried the bowl there was no manipulation of the candy itself. Oh, yes, one up on the mother-in-law and sisters-in-law, when I read those words it made me think of Cinderella--that was my Cinderella-at-that-ball moment.


You'd be surprised how many people don't wash, particularly after touching raw poultry. Think of it as an on-going PSA. I could stand to see a litle more of Tyler Florence. Emeril, not so much.

jwg, I can't watch Emeril, too much ego in the Bam! Besides, I am philosophically opposed to audience cooking shows. What is that all about?
