As a spin-off of the Rachel Ray thread: Who do you love? Who drives you nuts? Under the "TV chefs that I love" category, it's: BAREFOOT CONTESSA: I could watch her all day. She has such a calming manner, and a sweet, motherly personality. And man, does she have an incredible house or what?!? Her recipes are gourmet, yet she makes the preparation seem so simple and easy. TYLER FLORENCE: HOT boy. And down-to-earth in the way he speaks and acts. He makes cooking seem so fun, and what a patient teacher he is. SARA MOULTON: I like her for many of the same reasons as the barefoot contessa. She's cute, sweet, and there's something very motherly and nurturing about the way she cooks. She just seems very normal. Under the "drive me crazy" category, it's: GIADA: drives me nuts how she over-pronounces every single word. "Cream" turns into "Ka-reeeeeeem" and "rich" turns into "Rrrrrrr-which." And I think it's annoying how she overpronounces that Italian accent for every Italian word she says: "spaghetti" turns into "Spah-Geeeeteeee!" And "ricotta" turns into "Reee-KOH!-tah." I mean, I know she's Italian and all, but so is Mario Batali and he doesn't overpronounce his Italian words! I also can't stand all her fake smiles...she has a big huge grin even while she's standing in silence, stirring a pot of pasta. I mean, who cooks like that IRL???? SANDRA LEE: If I hear her say "table-scape" one more time, I will scream. And is it me or does that woman have an obsession with her niece Danielle? She's constantly talking about her. Somethiing about her wardrobe rubs me the wrong way -- hellloooooo, BOOBS! And she talks as if she's talking to a deaf 5-year-old. ALTON BROWN: too much talking, although his nerdiness is kind of cute. Some of his food factoids are interesting, but bottom line -- I'd rather see cooking. RACHEL RAY: I get tired just watching her. She needs to calm down. Is it just me, or does that woman yell instead of speak? Small doses of Rachel is OK, but any more than that and I'm exhausted and need a vacation.
