What Do You Think Of Anne Burrell? - Page 2

post #31 of 40

I can't comment on her as a person but I'm not in awe of her .  Her hair freaks me out a little because it's so far removed from what most women would consider "pretty" or "flattering" so I don't really get it.  That said I admire her oomph and courage to go out looking like that.  I've never found her recipes appealing so I've never been fussed to try one. 

 

Now Tyler Florence, he's a tall glass of water but his recipes are sooooooo good they are constantly in my arsenal of must-dos.  His is the only show that every time I catch it on tv my dinner plans change :)

 

I quite love Gwyneth Paltrow!

I usually never mind a bad haircut on anyone, as long as it's a passing fad.  I appreciate change, cut it short, keep it long, change the color here and there, you're in the public eye after all, keep it interesting.  Actually I wouldn't call her a beautiful woman in comparison to others women on tv but she would look quite nice with her hair combed downwards lol.

I like her shows a lot, thus, I like her.

Noticed this thread has picked up momentum since 2010.  Watched a few episodes of Worst Cooks, but didn't much care for it, as well.  One thing she said about hot avocados being gross, hit the nail on the head, for me.  Didn't pay much attention. Haven't followed her shows. FN has lost its luster, for me.  Last thing I watched was The Next Iron Chef.  I rooted for Geoffrey Zakarian from the beginning.  I would like to see more of him (cooking).  Just getting into Gordon's Kitchen Nightmares on BBC.  Enjoying that show more than FN.

I agree cerise, the food network can be so lame, it has lost all quality for me. The cooking channel is slipping too. My most favorite show I never see in anymore is the f-word, that was a great great show.

I like Zakarian  as well.  He was the one going against Morimoto in the sardine battle on Iron Chef America, which I mentioned in the fish challenge.

I reminded myself of the f word and so I had to go see if it's available on line.  Of course it is, on youtube.  I just watched the very first episode and had a lovely time doing so.  It's Gordon Ramsay like you've never seen him before, personable, easy going. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHO2pIgI-rY

 

What I love about it is the all around view of food from serving it, to growing it to raising it and tackling food issues such as fois gras and sustainable food.

I like Anne aside from her upbeat personality, she knows her craft well.  Her knowledge of the subject matter and ease of teaching ability show her training, comfort, level and professionalism. I would love to work with her. Its much better to work with some one who knows what they are doing and can crack a joke once in a while. Than to work with some boring stiff who only thinks he/she knows what they are doing and usually you have to check behind them. To me she is organized, professional, cool under pressure,and seems to work well with others.

Ditto. Chef Anne kicks butt in the kitchen and has a no nonsense attitude when required in a professional setting. I would work with her any time.

 

It is interesting to me that my abilities would sometimes be judged by what I put on my head rather on the plate.
