I really enjoyed that Mrs A.

I DO like to be in the kitchen.

I surprised myself with my culinary knowledge.

One of my favourite TV channels is 'Food Network' Freeview channel 41.

Hope a few more can join in.

Not a very good program that Mrs Am I don't like it.

They do a fair bit of Jamie Oliver's stuff, '15 Minute Meals', 'Jamie at Home', 'Jamie's Money Saving

Meals' etc, he does some excellent food.

His programmes tend to be on around lunchtime and early evening.

I also like 'The Pioneer Woman', 'The Barefoot Contessa' and 'Diners Drive-ins and Dives'.

I like to call 'Diners..... etc or Triple D as it's called '1001 different sorts of Hamburgers'

Do NOT watch 'Man versus Food', it is GROSS!!!!!!, he does food challenges like he has to eat a 72 oz

steak and 2lb of fries in say 30 minutes yeuck!!!!!.

BUMP.

I watch Freeview channel 41 on a daily basis.

Chefs to watch for are :-

Ree Drummond, known as ‘The Pioneer Woman’, she lives on a ranch in Oklahoma, and her cooking centres around feeding her family and the work that takes place on the ranch.

Ida Garten, known as ‘The Barefoot Contessa’.
Bit of a grand title, but she does some decent dishes as she feeds husband and friends.

Anna Olson, a professionally trained pastry chef, who does ‘Fresh With Anna Olson’ and ‘Bake With Anna Olson’.

Giada Pamela De Laurentiis, an Italian-born American chef, writer, and television personality.
She is the host of ‘Giada at Home’, really good Traditional Italian cooking.

Guy Fieri, a chef and foody.
He travels across America finding good restaurants in ‘Diners, Drive-ins and Dives’.
The portion sizes are unbelievable!!!!!!
They tend to produce really high quality cooked meats by marinating or covering with a dry spice rub and slow cooking for hours, but inevitably everything gets smothered in bl**dy cheese!!!!! LOL

All the above are US based programmes, and it’s interesting to note that Americans have never ventured in the metric system.
They use ‘cup’ measurements for loose things like flour and sugar, and of course ‘ounces’ for weight.
Oven temperatures of course are in Fahrienheit.

I'm just the opposite Mrs A, I much prefer the metric system.

Grams and millilitres anyday.

1 lb = 450 g when converting recipes
1 ounce = 28.4 g
1 ounce = 25 g when converting recipes
