I wasn’t going to post today, mostly because I don’t have a before and after interior post ( as I am still working on some),I couldn’t find any inspiration for another post, and because it’s just one of those days where if I could manage the guilt, I would sit in front of the tv all afternoon. Watching Barefoot Contessa, French Food at Home, and my new favorite Pioneer Woman. My new found love for cooking shows has brought me back to the days in high school when I would come home from school sit in my dad’s big leather recliner, pour myself a bowl of Fruity Pebbles or pasta with parmesan cheese, and watch Great Chefs. I LOVED this show. My dad always watched cooking shows like Frugal Gourmet and this one, he was my influence. There would be back to back episodes on and I was always wishing for more as I had already watched enough episodes of Full House and Saved by the Bell in junior high. I find it kind of funny now, that I use to love this show so much. I wonder what my friends would have done if I made them come over and watch it with me? I think it was like my own private indulgence. I kind of wish I would have known that 16 years later I would love cooking so much and not love fashion so much anymore. I guess Fashion File made the fashion industry so much more glamourous than being a chef. Damn!!!
The shows are simple, documenting real chefs all over the world, all with a woman narrating with the most soothing voice. Each episode would host 3 different chefs each one making a different course (appetizer, main course, dessert). I was searching this show a few months ago and about fell one when I saw how much they cost ( if anyone is looking for christmas ideas…or a kitchen aid mixer…hint hint). Today, I found some clips of the show. Now they are clearly outdated…part of the fun!
