Cooking Show Hosts Need To Remove Jewelry When They Are Cooking!

MarianneB88 | Jan 11, 201403:18 PM     28

I am watching Lidia Bastianich and she is making sausage at a shop and those bangle bracelets of hers are all over the raw meat. That is so unhygienic. She is a professional and should know not to do that. Hope no one bought those sausages she made because who knows where those bracelets have been! Gross.

It isn't just the women who mix food with rings etc on, Chef John Besh keeps his wedding ring on while mixing food. I don't recall if Jacques Pepin wears a wedding ring or not? I just remember what my old Home Ec teacher in High School used to say: " If you want Miss Botulism to come to dinner leave your rings, watches, and bracelets on!"

I feel the same about hair being tied back. People watch these shows to learn to cook and you should not only teach them to cook but you should show them how to be hygienic in the kitchen. Just my opinion, feel free to voice your own!
