I know how to cook American food whether it be southern, sandwiches, meals under $10, and gourmet. I've also learned a lot about Italian dishes. What I would like to learn is authentic Chinese, Thai, Korean, Japanese, Indonesian, the kind you would cook at home. There must be
many good teachers out there that would be great Food Network hosts with the flair for teaching and imparting camera savvy at the same time. Why don't they do Next Food Network Stars for this type of cuisine only? I think the powers that be are very limited on their knowledge of what the public wants. Thank goodness for Marcella Viallodid (?) and her authentic Mexican cuisine. There is also the Cooking channel that features that great young Chinese cook from San Francisco. But other than these two, I would like to see something new and exciting.
