Comments: Disturbed Cooking with Paula Deen
I don't spend a lot of time watching Paula Deen--there's always Top Gear, or a Burn Notice marathon, cable news, TCM, etc.
I became sympathetic to her after that heroin addict Anthony Bourdain ran his danger tourist mouth. Whatever might be said about Paula Deen, she has the grace and class to not attack people out of the blue who never said an unkind word about her. I think this is what Southerners mean when they talk about "Yankees."
I still watch Anthony Bourdain. I used to set the timer on the cable box, but not anymore. I'm not lingering on one I've seen before when I'm flicking around, the way I used to, and I don't remember that the new ones are on Mondays quite so much. Dumbass spoiled his own show for me.

I love Paula Deen, and Giada, and Alton, and classic Julia when she can be found. Bourdain is OK, but he's a one-trick pony.

Bourdain fell into the fryalator long ago. If he could still cook he'd have his own restaurant.

Bourdain is a tool. I got so pissed at him when he went to Saudi Arabia and let this harridan in a black bag use him and his camera crew as tools for Saudi propaganda.
I never understood his quest for goat. Any Middle Eastern restaurant serves goat.
As for Paula, I don't make her stuff. It's all bad for you. I know my husband likes Giada...for reasons that escape me. Not.
