What Kind of Cooking Show Host Do You Prefer?

Ok. This is not to bash anyone who has a cooking I happened to catch a few moments of Paula Deen last night, she was making something with butter. The butter was melted and in a bowl. She poured the butter into the bowl and then proceeded to put the bowl to her mouth as though she were drinking the butter. My reaction was total shock--a little chuckle, but it got me to thinking about what kind of host I want to see when watching a cooking show.

My ideal host would be a cross between the personalities of Tyler Florence and Ina Garten--a little bit of John Folse and Nathalie Dupree and a pinch of Mary(ellen or ann) Esposito.

So I would guess I don't like a lot of flash--I would say I like my hosts more subdued.

What about you?
