I just finished watching a "Secrets of a Restaurant Chef" show and I really like what she does. She has the same enthusiasm for food and cooking a young Emeril had in way back when he first started in Essence of Emeril. Such as when he said, “Lamb shank’s you see ‘em, you buy ‘em baby.” I tried her Beef Bourguignon and thought it was excellent. She marinated the chuck overnight with large and easily extractable hunks of onion, carrots and celery. I hadn’t seen that before but it did a great job of tenderizing the meat.
Her show has a nice balance of professionalism without snobbery and accessibility without pandering. Just seems a nice cooking show without the host being more important than the food. Feels like what the food network used to be.
