I loved the kitchen, but I had to stop watching, could not take anymore sonny Anderson , she's twice as loud as everyone else it's as if she's always yelling at me! The other host gz, Jeff , Katy lee, & Marcella are wonderful. But sonny always is the first one to grab food, yell out answers etc. please please either quieter down, or replace her. I love beat bobby flay, when she's a judge I don't watch that either. I swear she's on crack!
Yes, my sentiments exactly!
Totally agree please put a rag in her mouth or better yet, replace her
I have been watching food network for years, bit honestly getting a little too much.
I watch it for chefs talents and finding new recipes, not ridiculous reality shows.
When is giada going to clean up her act? She is so into herself and a bit over the top.
Her appearance would be fine if she was doing a commercial for Victoria secret but it's a cooking show. To be honest, I have turn her show on and end up turning it off, getting way too fake.
I have been watching the food network since it has started. I am a Chef and graduated at the Culinary Institute of America. I was in awe when the channel started, it was quite a educational channel and complimented my Profession. Now it is like a carnival, with all these competitions that are getting old. I can see the ratings have slipped because someone has changed the original format. It is tasteless has no real appeal and far too many competitions. This network has slipped. It really is a shame because I loved this network. Cutthroat Kitchen really''''''Camp Cut Throat, really'''''''' Kids cooking and Cupcake wars. What has happened to this channel. The education has went out of the window and reality shows have taken over. Please wake up and smell the coffee before it is too late.
CIA baby! 10' San Antonio, 13' Hyde Park...Green and Gold!
I agree. Rachel Ray was burning the handle of the skillet. Among other big mistakes. I used to like the professional way the network has. More detail and quality of the recipes all that is gone. How and what to cook is what America needs. Instructing people to eat healthy. And with low budgets. I hope someone sees the problem and change it. Paola Deen recipe of Beef Strogonov (Sorry I don't know the spelling) says 1 CUP of salt. It is too much salt. Please someone make a note of it. Thank you.
I am curious how you get around laws as they pertain to children and teenagers and the use of alcohol on Chopped.
They are allowed to use alcohol that is labeled "For cooking purposes only." This is a professional environment that they work in, and it's not like it's there for everyone to sip on...
I won't be watching the next food network star in the future. First - must Giada's cleavage reveal, reveal, reveal ......... is inappropriate. Is she a cook or a hooker? Second, it did not surprise me who won this year. After all how can you tell a football star he can't be the star anymore? Obviously not your team. He didn't earn the win and always referred to his "football career" just to remind the judges of his clout. I have pretty much quit watching Food Network after your response to something Paula Deen said YEARS ago. I don't think giving up Food Network is going to be a hardship for me. I think Gordon Ramsey will be my go to place for culinary shows. At least he is fair and honest.
I AGREE HAS SHE GAIN 20+ pound too.
PLEASE OH PLEASE CHANGE YOUR PROGRAMIMG.HOW MUCH CAN WE STAND OF CHOPPED STARS. THIS IS TOTALY OUT OF CONTROL. I HAVE TURNED YOU IN MORE TIME THAN I CAN COUNT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This network use to be useful but I NO LONGER TUNE IN. COOKING NETWORK IS EVEN WORSE. IF I were to rate both your networks I would give a- 5 number. Please change or take both of them off and start over. AND WHO FROM THE PORK PRODUCES ARE YOU GETTING PAID......... STOP THE PORK RECIPES PLEASE OH PLEASE.
I'm very disappointed in Chef Ann Burell tasting chocolate frosting and then after tasting it putting the spoon back into the dish. Very disappointed cause I like her so much.
i love food network. it might be fun to see alton brown on the other side. what goes around should come around. how about just fair play. past chefs could give him a taste (lol) of his own sabotages. love mary
Your show " The Kitchen" is a winner. The chemistry between all the hosts is great and I learn something each week. Jeff Morrow is one of the most entertaining people out there. Keep up the good work!
I am a big Chopped fan but don't like the new format this season. I always enjoyed (and learned from) the judges comments as they are deciding who will be chopped. This season this portion has been eliminated (except for after the dessert segment) and it takes away from the show, I think.
I, too, was appalled at Giadas attire this past season! We have been recording the show for years and watching it with our children. The first thing we noticed was Giada's cleavage! This has always been one of the few shows that we enjoy watching as a family. Imagine my response when my daughter asked me what a "sausage fest" was!! (A comment made by one if the contestants). Why on earth would you air such a comment? Please return to the wholesome content that got us hooked on your show in the first place. Otherwise, we can no longer watch your show. If viewers want to see lots of cleavage, ridiculously short dresses, and bare midriffs, there are plenty of trashy reality shows to choose from. In my opinion, none of that belongs on the food network!
Hey, guess what? WOMEN HAVE BOOBS! If you're trying to shield your children from human bodies then something is wrong because guess what again? WE ALL HAVE PRETTY MUCH THE SAME PARTS! Omg who knew??
Hey, guess what anonymous , we all know that we have boobs and something else. Is that means we have to show them on the food network channel. This is cooking show , not boobs show, so cover them, and do the cooking.
Besides that, who needs to see hours , and hours of Chopped, Diners, Drive-ins, And Dives, Guys Grosery Games, or Cutthroat kitchen , wish is really stupid, like the host of it.
We like to see Pioneer woman, Barefoot Contessa, Sweet Julia, Ann Burell, Alex day off,farmhouse rules, Ten dollar dinners, Neallys, Simons dinners, Mario Batalli, or even Lidia Bastianich. Clean up your channel Food Network, and start showing some real cooking shows, not does boring, dicusting, cooking game show.
Enough of Guy already! He's talented and fun but his overexposure is killing my interest. Then there's Giada. I agree with many of the reviewers.....her attire is disgraceful for a supposed family show. I would also suggest that, especially during the summer months, some of the more classic daytime shows be aired in the evening. Most of us don't have the luxury of daytime viewing and I for one would like to see the Barefoot Contessa and some of the other more classic Food Network programs in the evening.
YOu sure missed the best when you didnt' make Jay the food network star. Also i hate what you did to Mellissa d'Arabia, i love French food, being French and have to watch public TV to seee it made
I'm so over both Giada and Bobby ... I used to be a loyal fan ... not any more ... Tonight was the last straw with Giada and her completely inappropriate dress. I will not watch anything with her in it again. DONE!!!
I have recently watched Giada's new show from Italy. I absolutely love the scenery as my husband & I have traveled there a few times. In the past I have enjoyed Giada's show especially when she had Aunt Raffy on, so very enjoyable. This new show so far has only been enjoyable for the scenery because I think there is far too much of Jade on the show. It really is the "Giada & Jade" show. I am not at all interested in knowing if Jade knows words in Italian. Now the good shows were when Todd was in some of the shows with other family & friends. I loved when they were a family on picnics. I know Giada & Todd are divorced but Giada has lost a very special person in her show & should have thought of that? Her new show is very dull & truly uninteresting. I am thinking Giada now thinks no matter what she does she thinks the public will accept it? I don't think so & so I am finished. I would rather go back & watch her reruns... PS... I do not watch any of the challenge or game food shows, only the half hour cooking shows, Ina, Pioneer Woman, Aarti, Melissa D'Arabian, Neely's, Anne Burrell, Rachael...
i was so disappointed to see Great American Food Finds pulled from Monday night's lineup. It was great to see some FRESH NEW FACES for a change. I am tired of watching the same tired faces doing the same tired things. You never gave those guys a chance. I am so bored with burgers, bars and cupcakes. No wonder viewership is down. I am done .
I am no prude, nor am I overly sensitive. However, given that I was watching a cooking show, I was totally offended when I watched Rachel Ray--and the Food Network by extension--gushing over Eddie and his muscles. She actually pawed his chest when they met! Why is this any different than a man groping a buxom woman's breasts under the same circumstances? Never mind that we're already expected to ogle Giada's rather obvious cleavage. I saw a contestant being treated like a piece of meat instead of the chef and man he is. I cringed, and half expected her to check his teeth. When he won, my first thought was that the ladies had the hots for him. Shame on you, Food Network. Unprofessional at the very least. But to me, inexcusable. I hope you will at least make an attempt to address this matter.
