    Alton Brown is about the only guy I like on Food Network anymore.

    Sorry, the point at which he's hawking Welch's Grape Juice and looking like a child molestor is the point at which he's lost me.

    I agree he needs to re-think the recent...fancy mullet thing. The grape juice thing doesn't bug me as much, maybe because other Food Network stars do way worse. Also because Food Network probably had some hand in it.

    I always got annoyed at the way she talks in an American accent but then pronounces all Italian foods in an Italian accent. Maybe that's how its supposed to sound, but talking in one accent and then saying ricotta or parmigiana reggiano in a different accent sounds too weird.

    But pretty much any annoying mannerisms or traits she has are blocked out by her low-cut shirts...*drool*

    are you one of those people who would pronounce someones foreign name in a butchered-american way just because you don't want to switch your accent in order to properly respect someones name?

    Nope. I pronounce ricotta and whatnot in the basic way she does. What I'm talking about is how she'll put emphasis on pronouncing stuff with rolling 'i's' or doing something such as pronouncing 'Ricardo' in an exaggerated Italian accent and then shifting back into an American accent.

    EDIT: Well this is just a fantastic TOTP.

    Only if she pronounced it in that annoyingly over-annunciated Italian accent.

    What really bugs me about Giada and The Barefoot Contessa (besides being forced to think about Ina Garten's feet just from the title of her stupid show), is the compulsion to come up with retarded little stories for why they're making the food.

    "So today I decided to throw a little garden supper party to celebrate the ten-millionth garden supper party I've thrown!"
    "Oh, my sister's in town visiting, and she loooves clams! Let's cook up a great little lunch that we can giggle over!"
    "I'm heading over to my neighbor's villa for dinner and they asked me to bring all the food!"

    SHUT UP. You're just making food, I don't give a shit about what asinine story you made up to go with it. I don't need a reason to make food beyond "I'M HUNGRY."

    Whoever mentioned Michael Smith earlier was dead on, he's very likeable once you get passed the "I'm so likeable vibe" that they lay on pretty thick in his Cooking at Home show.

    Plus I just saw an episode of one of his other shows where he was travelling around in Japan and he was given a glass of Sake and Turtle Blood to drink and he dropped an F-bomb they barely managed to censor.

    It was great to hear him swear, turns out he is human.

    I like Guy Fieri's shows especially Diners Dri... etc, he doesn't bother me at all, although the set for his cooking show is a fucking eyesore but I guess it fits with the whole schtick.

    I also liked the Thirsty Traveller but they barely ever show that anymore.

    And of course Alton Brown is great.

    Paula Dean infuriates me. She sounds like she's deliberately trying to sound southern, and I can't stand to listen to her speak. Especially whenever she's drawing out "Y'AAAAWL."
    Seeing as how I actually live in the stereotypical portion of the south, Paula doesn't annoy me as much as I thought she would. She's pretty much like any other eccentric lady around here that likes to cook which makes it a bit more believable to me. I have a lot of friends up north that say she's totally fake and over doing the southern persona but I've come to learn that some people really are like that.
    Yeah, she's from southern Georgia, and people do actually sound like that down there. She's also an agoraphobe, so "eccentric" barely scratches the surface.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was decades ago that she was a total recluse or whatever. I read something about how she didn't even divorce her husband until 12 or so years after he walked out on her.

    yeah but that's not what zero was saying

    it's grape juice
    is he calling all grape juice "concentrated sugar water"?

    I think what he was getting at is that processed fruit juices may claim to have health benefits (in this case, Brown promotes the anti-oxidants in Welch's), but those benefits are largely offset by the large amount of sugar present in the juice. Looking at Welch's nutrition facts, one 8 oz. serving of juice has 170 calories and 40 grams of sugar. The same serving size of Coca Cola has 27 grams of sugar. While a lot of the sugar in Welch's comes from the grapes themselves, it's hard to tell how much of it has been processed and even if it's 100%, that's a lot of sugar to consume in a single glass. Forget the fact that most people drink more than 8 ounces of anything with a meal. Brown is stressing the anti-oxidants so much in the commercial, but the fact is that you could probably get those anti-oxidants from other things that don't have the sugar content of that juice and in the grand scope of things, those anti-oxidants are a drop in the bucket compared to the sugar.

    So while a glass of Welch's juice will help you towards getting your daily requirement of fruit, it's really just as sugar-laden as soda is. Though it doesn't have the other stuff present in Coke and fruit juice will fill you up whereas Coke will not. Of course the problem there is that if fruit juice fills you up, then you might not be hungry enough to eat the other daily requirements of veggies and proteins and whatnot.

    EDIT: ...really? Two TOTPs in a row? In the same thread? Sigh...

    as far as affordable products you can buy in a Wal-Mart, Welch's 100% grape juice is probably one of the healthiest things you can drink next to water

    I have no problem with Alton helping get the word out that drinking fruit juice is good for you

    although personally I am really liking Ocean Spray's Cranergy drink

    but there's no added sugar
    your ignorance of how much sugar fruit juice naturally has is leading you to the erroneous assumption that they're adding sugar when they aren't
    my mom made the same mistake recently when she bought a bottle of orange juice and looked at the amount of sugar
    she assumed they had sweetened it, when they had not

    fruit juice is fine you stupid fucks and Welch's grape juice isn't some toxic poison compared to organic grape juice
    there may be some marginal differences in nutritional content but you're grossly overstating the differences
