Oops, it was barbecue U. Check out the guy's full bio:

Steven Raichlen is a multi-award winning author, journalist, lecturer, and television host. His bestselling books and his Public Television shows—Primal Grill and Barbecue University—have redefined American barbecue. Raichlen’s 29 books include the international blockbusters The Barbecue Bible and How to Grill and the New York Times bestselling Planet Barbecue, published by Workman Publishing. His work has appeared in The New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, GQ, and Esquire. His books have won 5 James Beard Awards and 3 IACP-Julia Child Awards and been translated into 15 languages.

Raichlen founded Barbecue University, which takes place at the luxurious Broadmoor resort in Colorado Springs. He has lectured on the history and culture of barbecue at the Smithsonian Institution, the Library of Congress, and the National Press Club. He holds a degree in French literature from Reed College and hosts a French language TV show called Le Maitre du Grill. Raichlen studied medieval cooking in Europe on a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship and was the recipient of a Fulbright. In May 2012, he will publish his first novel.

re paula deen, i too am mostly over her. not sure how to think abot her diabetes situation with regards to her cooking. everything in moderation, so her stuff isn't all bad.

one of her sons has a show now, reworkign some of her recipes. she's shown on it, so she has to be ok with it...

also, since food network didn't renew the contract, its rubbing me the wrong way a little that everyone keeps saying she got fired... end result is the same, i know - no longer workign for FN - but i think of firing as beign out the door ASAP. semantics, sure, but there is a difference.

The cooking shows I like best are the competitive ones. I'm in love with Michael Symon (one of the Iron Chefs).
If you can, check out the Master Chef UK on BBC. It's on in the morning and afternoon right now. It's so refined and not frantic. Pretty much really upscale cooking but so interesting as to ingrediants used. It looks like the kind of food that people pay a lot of $$$ for and then go out for fish and chips because they're still hungary.

But I agree about Symon.

I do like Andrew Zimmern and Anthony Bourdain, but I consider those travel shows more than food/cooking.

I like America's Test Kitchen because they cover the failed attempts. "We tried this the traditional way, and it turned out soggy. So we tried it with this other pan, and it turned out a little better. Then we tried it with this other pan, and it was perfect." They share those mistakes so you can learn from them.
My favorites are Lydia's Italian Kitchen and the grilling guy Steve something (used to be Grill U, but they changed the name to "Primal Grill"). He's all about meat, meat, and more meat, but also other stuff you can grill. He looks a lot like an old boyfriend, so I enjoy watching him.:)

I love Chopped. I likethe competition and also they have a lot of ingredients on there that I never heard of. They give you the background on those ingredients, what they're normally used for, how they taste, etc.

I haven't followed the "news" reports of what exactly she said or did to get fired, but from the number of articles that I've skipped across, it appears that the media is milking this for all it's worth. Must be a slow news week.

LW1: You are overfunctioning. Quit doing so much. Get the book, "Why Men Love B...ches". And I agree with Saluki Rod. Generally speaking, an average-looking man is a better long-term bet.

LW2: What Matilda said.

LW3: Raw cake is edible. Raw chicken is not.

I've not followed it, but I did listen to a talk show that discussed it for a few minutes. Their take, it was all in her delivery. She was t some deposition and was asked about whether or not she used the N word. She could have said something like "well, it was a different time, and its not something I'm proud of. I've learned a lot since then, yadda yadda"

Instead, she answered "Of course!" No remorse over having used it. Additionally, she's apparently been dropping in the ratings since her diabetes diagnoses, so this might have been a convenient way to drop her sinking ship.
