Seen the "New Scandinavian Cooking" TV Show?

I'm hooked on it!

It airs on Saturday afternoon on Ventura, CA PBS that comes over my Direct TV feed.

Part travelogue-cultural peekaboo, part cooking, the hosts are adorably clunky, with that "deer-in-the-headlights" stiffness in front of the camera that can be great TV.

Last season's host, Andre Viested, in one episode, cooked fish in a shack on a pier, where the entire wall opened up to the water and he hauled the fish into the kitchen by pulling a bucket out of the water. A storm blew up, they closed up the wall, some of the food froze on set! In another episode, he hosted from the farm that has been in his family for 250 years, using ingredients from there and harvesting mussels from the adjoining bay.

Addictive stuff.
